Huawei has backup Android plan

Samsung Z4 powered by the company’s Tizen OS

The OS has been rumoured for years, but Huawei confirmed its viability with the South China Morning Post saying it could be used if the company were cut off from Android or Windows.

"Should it ever happen that we can no longer use these systems, we would be prepared", he said.

Android Q Beta 1 officially announced
If you are on your Pixel smartphone, it is still possible to activate this mode, but of course it won't be optimal. Instead of releasing the first beta only for developers, Google is letting anyone sign up and install the beta .


Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has confirmed that it has developed its own proprietary operating systems (OS) and is ready to implement those in case its legal battle with the USA leads to a ban on the export of US-made products and services such as Android and Windows. In an interview with German agency Die Welt, Yu divulged that Huawei has developed in-house operating systems.

There is also the matter of processors for its laptops, as its Matebooks are powered by the US-made Intel processors.

Trump Signs His First Veto After Congress Rejects His National Emergency
Unless more Republicans defect from the president's position, neither margin would be sufficient to override a veto. Before issuing the veto, Trump again said there was a tremendous national emergency, while U.S.


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. According to Yu, Huawei will continue to use Google and Microsoft operating systems, but if the legal battle intensifies, it won't hesitate to switch to its own ecosystem.

Should Huawei face the same ban, it will at least be more prepared. In January 2019, the U.S. DOJ filed criminal charges against Huawei for alleged trade secret theft, bank fraud, and obstruction of justice. Its latest device, the Mate 20 series, now runs Android while its Matebook series run Microsoft's Windows 10 OS. "We fully support our partners' operating systems - we love them, and our customers love them", a company spokesperson told South China Morning Post. After all, they do make their own smartphone processors. In 2016, reports of a Huawei OS being in development surface again, this time as a precaution in case its relationship with Google goes bad.
