Huawei was hit hard when the US government vetoed its agreement with the operator AT&T to market their devices, as this would have been an important boost to the sales of their smartphones in that country.
Huawei has denied any accusation of espionage, but the manufacturer has become cautious with the current position of the United States since, recently, the US government It has also pressured its allies to stop using equipment manufactured by the Chinese company.
Therefore, Huawei wants to be prepared in a scenario in which other large companies like Google may be forced to continue on the same path. Nowadays, the company already has an alternative in hardware (its own Kirin processors) but not in software.
Today, we have learned that the Chinese company is developing its own operating system that, at some point, it could replace Android. Although we had already heard this in the past, now the Vice President of Mobile Products of Huawei has confirmed it.
It is worth to mention that Google has been working on a new operating system called Fuchsia and in the last week a change in the project has made by a Huawei engineers.
The interesting thing is that this change confirms that the Fuchsia operating system is being tested on Huawei’s Honor Play smartphone.
According to some reports, Google admitted that it could still be a few years before the operating system is ready for commercial use, and before Honor Play, Google has tested the operating system on the Pixelbook and other phones.
