A chef looks as vendors test an autonomous sweeping robot that uses 5G technologies at the Huawei Campus in Shenzhen. The biggest potential American blow to Huawei would be the loss of Google services that are standard features on Android-based phones. Huawei could use Android, which is open-source, but would lose Google's music, maps and other applications, making it harder to compete with Samsung, the No. 1 smartphone brand.
