In March, Huawei started shipping smartphones with their own version of the Google Play Store, called the “AppGallery”. A few days ago, they added a Bitcoin wallet, made in partnership with This wallet will be preinstalled on both new Huawei and Honor devices, and available for download on their other devices, but only in China.

This is, curiously, a strange move coming from Huawei, due to the current Chinese government restricting and banning cryptocurrencies in general.
