Huawei Technologies, the largest smartphone vendor in China, said they have developed their own mobil operating systems (OS) for smartphones and also for computers.that can be used on its devices in the event that current systems provided by US technology giants are no longer available.
This Compay has developed a proprietary OS because of tensions between the company and the US government could impact the availability of US-made operating systems used on Huawei devices, Huawei’s mobile chief Richard Yu Chengdong, said in an interview with German publication Die Welt.
“Huawei does also have backup systems but only for use in extenuating circumstances. We don’t expect to use them, and to be honest, we do not want to use them,” said a Huawei spokesperson on Thursday. “We fully support our partners’ OS – we love using them and our customers love using them. Android For Smartphones and Windows For PCs will always remain our first choices.”
Having an alternative OS has likely taken on added urgency though for Huawei amid escalating trade tensions between the US and China. Huawei is the world biggest telecommunications network equipment supplier.
