After the Chinese firm was added to a list of entities that require a licence to trade with American companies, the US Commerce Department has relaxed these restrictions.
It has given Huawei a temporary licence to allow the company to purchase US goods as long as they are used to maintain existing networks and provide software updates.
This is likely in response to Google being ordered to cease trading with Huawei, which would have meant pulling Android and Google services from its handsets. The turnaround is believed to have been put in place to minimise disruption to customers with Huawei devices, yet it will be shortlived. The temporary licence expires on 19 August.
