The University of Helsinki IT Center does not recommend the purchase of Huawei phones for the time being. This is due to Google discontinuing updates of the Android OS on new Huawei devices. Security updates will also be discontinued.

According to the latest information these restrictions do not apply to existing Huawei phone models, and both applications and updates function normally on current models. Therefore you do not have to stop using Huawei phones currently in use.
