The operating system that prepares Huawei is compatible with Android apps

The biggest news in the tech industry this week is President Trump’s executive order to restrict US companies from supplying products to Huawei.

As a result, Google revoked Huawei’s Android license. The US Department of Commerce has already eased the restrictions, but it is clear that the company must worry about its future with Android.

After the news, many assumed that they would simply build an operating system based on AOSP (Android without Google services). However, it may not be so simple since they could not use any operating system that contains copyrights belonging to a US company.

The company has been working on a backup operating system since 2012 and now we know a little more about it.

According to a report by the Chinese magazine Caijing, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group, has revealed details about the Huawei operating system.

Apparently, it will be available this fall on phones, computers, tablets, televisions, cars and wearables. The operating system will be compatible with all Android applications and can also be recompiled to improve performance.

This news of support for Android applications is very important, since other Android alternatives, such as Tizen, are not compatible with Android applications.

According to the Financial Times report, Tim Watkins, vice president of Huawei’s Western Europe operations, said in an interview that Huawei is preparing to release its own mobile operating system after Google said it will restrict Huawei’s Android service. Watkins said that Huawei has been building the system. According to him, it has been tested in some parts of China and is expected to be launched soon. In March of this year, Huawei’s consumer business CEO, Yu Chengdong, said that Huawei has already prepared its own operating system. Once the Google and Microsoft operating systems can no longer be used, Huawei will be ready to start the B plan.

    lol.. with such a closed ecosystem and a hit on performance and strict compatibility (come on, nothing is 100% compatible), will anyone use them other than people who are in china (who have been banned from using Whatsapp, facebook and youtube).

      Was it mentioned that the OS will be closed? Amazon uses an altered version of Android. I am pretty sure Huawei can do up another Android based OS and go around the Trump restrictions.

    Android is a port of a nix port, iOS is a splicing of 3 nix ports and Chinese tech companies wouldn’t be porting and splicing their own OS? Moronic. That they wouldn’t have made their own top shelf Android interpreter and that it wouldn’t be good at its job, now that’s another level or Moronic.

    Since Russia isn’t the devil any more, China now is? Neither China nor Russia hacked US critical services. The US can’t same the same with either country. After this week end’s Netflix, Zac Efron could do Uncle Sam.
