On Friday, the Chinese telecom giant Huawei launched its own operating system. HarmonyOS is the new operating system that will now work on almost all of the devices.
However, the Trade War conditions between the US and China have really not seemed to affect Huawei from developing its own technology.
This is also a backup strategy developed by Huawei. If the Trade War persists, there are chances of US government blacklisting the company again.
On Saturday the Chinese Tech giant revealed its Honor Vision TV. This will be the first device powered by Huawei’s own operating system.
However, Huawei is also on Washington’s blacklist. An entity list which forbids the US companies to sell its products to Huawei. As well as the US companies have to get a special license to sell its products to Huawei.
In such a situation it is necessary for Huawei to develop its own operating system. This obviously helps Huawei with not relying on American technologies as well.
The new HarmonyOS, also called as HongMengOS will eventually be used in all of the devices of Huawei. That includes smartphones, smartwatches, smart speakers as well as in-vehicle systems.
Although, the Trump administration has recently said, of approving licenses for a few products. As further as it will not pose as a danger to US security, or its allies.
For its smartphones, Huawei uses Google Android. Although, having no access to the Android could hurt Huawei, according to the sources.
A big reason for Huawei to develop its own operating system is, it is the second-largest smartphone maker in the world. Behind Samsung, and ahead of Apple.
On Friday, at the press conference, ‘the situation with Google remains “unclear”.’ Mr. Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei’s consumer division, said according to the sources.
