  • Huawei has backup Android plan

As tensions increase between Huawei and the United States government, Huawei has accommodated for all eventualities by preparing its own operating systems.

"We have prepared our own operating system, if it turns out we can no longer use these systems [Android], we will be ready and have our plan B", said Huawei mobile chief Richard Yu Chengdong, in an interview with German publication Die Welt.

Development of the operating system started in 2012, said an unnamed South China Morning Post source, in light of USA investigations into Huawei and ZTE that year.

According to Yu, Huawei would prefer working with Google and Microsoft but could launch its own proprietary operating system if the situation worsens.

Huawei's smartphones use Google Android while its laptops run on Windows. Huawei makes its own SoC - the Huawei Kirin, and so is not much dependent on Qualcomm's 'Snapdragon SoC, but same cannot be said of the company's patronage of Google's products and services particularly Google Android OS.

In any way, we may see Huawei fighting its way into the market with the new OS. "We don't expect to use them, and to be honest, we don't want to use them", the spokesperson explained. The project was reportedly started under Huawei's founder Ren Zhengfei.

The US alleges during meetings with an unnamed banking institution in the US, Wanzhou misrepresented Huawei's ownership and control of Iranian affiliate Skycom. Huawei already makes its own smartphone processors as well. He added that Huawei's customers love Android and Windows and it will always remain its first choices. For PCs, though, Huawei uses Intel silicon, and if a ban were to take place, similar to how it did for ZTE, Huawei would need to look elsewhere for its laptop-grade processors.
