EMDK required permission

Hi Zebra team,

I have a question about the EMDK permissions when developing an app for Android devices.

As stated on the page below, it is required to add the "uses-permission" line in the manifest file.

However, we intend to create one app that can be installed on Zebra devices, aswell as other consumer devices, that do not have the EMDK installed. Is there a way to build a android studio project, without the explicit requirement in the manifest file?
