Huawei prepared own OS in case of Android, Windows ban

Huawei Created Its Own Operating System to Bypass Possible Ban on Using Android Windows Yu

"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", the Huawei official said.

MANILA, Philippines - Huawei's consumer business group CEO Richard Yu recently shed a light on what the company might do in case the USA bans them from using Google Android and Microsoft Windows.

The firm has been working on an operating system that could replace Android since 2012 when the U.S. opened an investigation into both ZTE and itself, according to the South China Morning Post. However, he mentioned that Huawei likes to work with its partners like Google and Microsoft, which provide the Android and Windows operating systems for Huawei's smartphone and laptop portfolio.

'We have prepared our own operating system.

In an exclusive interview with CTV News' Chief News Anchor and Senior Editor Lisa LaFlamme, Huawei Technologies founder and president Ren Zhengfei is speaking out about his daughter's arrest in Canada and the controversy surrounding his company.

The US alleges during meetings with an unnamed banking institution in the US, Wanzhou misrepresented Huawei's ownership and control of Iranian affiliate Skycom. "We don't expect to use them, and to be honest, we don't want to use them", the Huawei spokesperson reportedly said.

Having its own OS to power its laptops and smartphones as substitutes for Windows and Android safeguards Huawei's ability to keep operating.

Chinese technology giant Huawei filed a lawsuit against the United States government last week as a "last resort" to get a federal ban on the use of its products lifted. However, he did not specify whether Huawei has already developed an alternative operating system to Android, Windows, or both.
