Huawei to launch own OS in June
Smartphones produced by Huawei currently use Google’s Android operating system which is now not possible due to a recent US ban which restricts Chinese companies’ involvement in the US’ telecoms sector and business arrangements with US firms in certain areas. In response, Huawei intends to launch its own operating system in June. This mobile operating system which has long been under development, has been ready from January 2018 but Huawei did not launch it in order to preserve the existing commercial arrangements with Google and other companies. The US ban has expedited its launch.
