Huawei has been struggling to make it in the US in recent months and it does not look like the situation will improve in the near future. While the company is not quite as lost as other Chinese cell phone makers ZTE, which was blacklisted essentially in the US for trade infringements, leading to an export ban that cost it its Android license, Huawei is likely to take precautions , it should be in The Same Crosshair
According to a new report, one of these precautions is to develop a mobile operating system that can be used instead of Android. Sources told South China Morning Post that Huawei had worked on its own mobile operating system – along with tablet and PC versions – since it was the subject of a US security investigation in 201
There are no details on what Huawei's operating system looks like or how it works, but it is said that it does not yet offer the stability, quality or app support of Android, which is why it was not officially used. Sources indicate that the operating system should be used in "worst-case scenarios", while Huawei has neither confirmed nor denied it. The company has previously stated that it has no plans to release its own operating system in the "foreseeable future".
Huawei is already on thin ice in the US, but should it be the victim of a trade war with Chine Not the loss of the US market would be significant, it would be the loss of Android. Without Google's operating system, Huawei would lose the ability to make and sell its phones in China and any other country. Replacing Android would be extremely difficult, especially with its app support, but Huawei's in-house operating system might work as fail-safe until they have a better plan.
