"Huawei has built its own operating system for smartphones and computers in case it is suddenly blocked from using United States software from Microsoft and Google", the CNBC reported on Friday.
According to the South China Morning Post, the China-based company has been working on an Android alternative since 2012 - right about the time when the us started investigating ZTE and Huawei. As a matter of fact, media reports were coming in last year, when it was said the company was already "years" into building its OS. "That's our plan B. But of course, we prefer to work with the ecosystems of Google and Microsoft", the executive told German newspaper Die Welt in an interview published, Sunday, March 10.
For its part, Huawei says it hopes to avoid this worst-case scenario. Huawei has sued the U.S. for banning government networks from using Huawei equipment, while facing charges of technology theft and sanctions violations from the US. The project was reportedly started under Huawei's founder Ren Zhengfei. We last heard about Huawei's own Android OS rival back in May a year ago.
Should Huawei face the same ban, it will at least be more prepared. Alternatively, it could develop its own processors for laptops just like it's developing a backup OS. It doesn't, however, have laptop processors, relying mostly on US-made Intel chips.
A Huawei spokesperson quoted by the South China Morning Post confirmed the interview quote, also echoing Yu's sentiments regarding their continued preference for the US-made OSes. He added that Huawei's customers love Android and Windows and it will always remain its first choices.
Huawei at a press conference held recently at its headquarters in Shenzhen, China, confirmed it has slammed a lawsuit against the USA authorities over the former ban on its telecommunications equipment.
