Huawei develops own OS in case of Android ban

15 March 2019, 06:45 | Glen Norman

Huawei has reportedly developed its own OS in case it can't use Android, Windows

Huawei CEO denies he's under Beijing's thumb

Should things get real ugly, and Huawei is banned from using Google's Android OS on its smartphones or Windows on its computers, the company already has backup operating systems in place.

"We have prepared our own operating system".

Huawei has revealed a plan B in case the trade war between China and the West means it is no longer allowed to use the Android operaing system.

Rockets fired from Gaza at Tel Aviv, explosions heard: Israeli military, witnesses
The Iran-backed Al-Sabareen terrorist group in Gaza has yet to release an official statement following the rocket attacks. It would be the first time that Tel Aviv has been targeted by rocket fire since a 2014 war against Gaza militants .

Yu also mentioned a 1000-euro foldable phone a year or two from now, a 100- or 200-inch device display using glasses. While an outright ban on ZTE was a devasting one, Huawei with its wealth of engineers has better chances of getting around such ban.

South China Morning Post quotes a Huawei spokesperson as confirming that this operating system does exist, only that the company doesn't believe it would ever use it. In 2016, reports of a Huawei OS being in development surface again, this time as a precaution in case its relationship with Google goes bad. The project was reportedly started under Huawei's founder Ren Zhengfei.

Huawei lawyers on Thursday also pleaded not guilty to federal charges that its CFO Meng Wanzhou violated USA trade sanctions on dealing with Iran and hid its dealings in the country through a subsidiary.

But Dallas reportedly did not want to pay Thomas more than about $11 million a year. The team has made a huge splash by signing free agent safety Earl Thomas.

Should Huawei face the same ban, it will at least be more prepared.

Banning Huawei from using Android and Windows sounds extreme, but with the U.S. asking its allies not to use the company's 5G equipment and even threatening to withhold intel from Germany if it does so, such a move isn't out of the question.

Having its own OS to power its laptops and smartphones as substitutes for Windows and Android safeguards Huawei's ability to keep operating. He added that Huawei's customers love Android and Windows and it will always remain its first choices. Other nations will make their own.
