Huawei Has Made Its Own Smartphone and PC OSes … Just in Case

Huawei CEO denies he's under Beijing's thumb

Huawei has reportedly developed its own OS in case it can't use Android, Windows

But should the situation get worse, the Chinese tech giant is prepared to use its own proprietary operating systems in its many mobile products. In April 2018, ZTE, also from China, was banned from receiving exports from U.S. suppliers including Qualcomm chips and Google Android OS for its phones, effectively shutting it down until the ban's lifting in July 2018.

A Huawei exec has told German news site Die Welt that it has made a backup OS for PCs and smartphones in the event that its troubles with the United States government prevent it from using Windows and Android on their PCs and smartphones.

"We have prepared our own operating system".

In response to a query whether Huawei has thought about developing its own operating system if the company's products need to become non-reliant on Google and Microsoft, Yu responded positively and revealed that the company has already done so.
