Huawei In Negotiation With Aptoide Over Google Play Store Replacement
As a result of the total ban of Huawei devices by the American government, many top American companies have been forced to cut ties and partnerships with the Chinese based smartphone maker.

The Huawei's Android license was also revoked by Google for future devices and it was even pulled out from the Android Q Beta programme and the ARM, which are normally used in Kirin processors, who also ceased to have ties with Huawei in order to comply to the new US policy.

The United States delayed the ban for 90 days, but Huawei is by all signs not taking any chances as they are already thinking of a backup plan, if the ban goes into effect.
They have reportedly asked app developers to submit their applications to the App Gallery, which is Huawei's own App Store akin to the Galaxy Apps Store on Samsung phones.
This is their immediate back-up since many Huawei and Honor devices already come with the App Gallary pre-installed.

However, a Portuguese media outlet recently reported that Aptoide, an open source alternative to the Google Play Store with over 900,000 apps and 10 million users is negotiating with Huawei to provide an alternative to the former.
We believe this will turn out to be fine if the deals go through, and it will be for better.
