Huawei has been blacklisted.
Singaporeans who are panicking are putting their

This is despite reassurances that existing Huawei devices are still able to run Google apps (Google Maps, YouTube, Gmail) -- just that newer devices can't.
For Huawei users' questions regarding our steps to comply w/ the recent US government actions: We assure you while we are complying with all US gov't requirements, services like Google Play & security from Google Play Protect will keep functioning on your existing Huawei device.— Android (@Android) May 20, 2019

As AsiaOne noted, second-hand mobile phone shops have stopped accepting Huawei devices for now.
