After Galaxy Store, the Google Play Store is the second biggest option for Samsung consumers to download and install Android apps. There are millions of apps available on the Google Play Store including free of cost and paid too, meanwhile, Huawei AppGallery is reportedly bringing paid Android apps for free, LOL!

Well, this is not any program initiated by the US-banned Huawei, but, it’s happening because of a flaw (fault) in the AppGallery. As per the information, an Android Developer discovered a new exploit in the Huawei AppGallery store that offers no protection for paid apps.

DOWNLOAD SAMMY FANS APP

Right now, consumers can get a valid APK download link for premium apps through the AppGallery store, without any type of payment. It seems like Huawei is aware of this severe issue and has acknowledged it (via Huawei Central), however, it’s not fixed yet making its use possible for app piracy.

Following the US sanctions in the past years, Huawei has been restricted from using Google Mobile Services for its devices. Accordingly, the Chinese company has created its own suite of apps and services such as the AppGallery store, which allows Huawei devices to install Android apps in the lack of the Google Play Store.
