With a key competitor eliminated, you can see prices for other phones to rise due to less choices. By rise I mean discounts being reduced. 

Huawei won't be getting Android Q. So many will refuse to buy it and carriers will drop it. Freedom already refused to carry newer Huawei phones despite initially putting them on website.

Don't know why anyone would rush to get a device that's going to have limited support.... Aside from the fact that I'm not a fan of Huawei.... Spyware & Malware built-in lol

Huawei never got much of a presence here despite aggressive marketing campaigns. You won't see a difference in prices

But their presence did force competitors to offer lower price. Now we can expect higher price with Huawei out of the door. Oneplus and xiaomi may be next.

Actually, it's the proprietary Google apps that won't be available (play store, YouTube, Gmail, etc)

The OS is open source and wuawei will still be able to load any future Android release they want

Yeah but a very significant chunk of useful Android stuff is contained in Google Play Services. That's a very big deal
