Tensions between the United States Government and the Huawei are not going to ease as the government is tightening the screws. To avoid any potential ban on using the Android operating system in its smartphones, Huawei has developed a proprietary operating system for its smartphones. If the tensions between the US and China worsen, Huawei will use a proprietary operating system for its smartphones, ditching Android. The operating system could be used on the computers as Microsoft will likely ban Huawei from using its products if everything goes sour.
Huawei executive Richard Yu said that the company developed its own operating system to avoid inconvenience in case of the potential ban from American companies. It is the plan B of Huawei to avoid immediate trouble to its users and also to the staff members as the Huawei is suing the United States Government for ditching the telecommunication equipment for the military purpose. On that lawsuit, the United States of America government claimed security reasons for not using the Huawei products. But, Huawei also contended that the United States government failed to provide any evidence of security issues with the telecommunication equipment and has ditched the company just out of grudge.
Reportedly, Huawei is working on a proprietary operating system from 2012 to compete with the Android and Microsoft’s Windows OS for smartphones. But as the times changed and they filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Government, the need of its operating system became paramount. According to Huawei Executive Richard Yu, the company is not going to adapt the operating system anytime soon, unless they are barred from using Android and Microsoft ecosystems in its smartphones and other devices. If they are prohibited from using the same, we can take a first glance of the operating system developed by Chinese Tech Giant.
