Huawei delays launch of folding smartphone

Huawei's New Operating System Is Insanely Fast Versus Android

The company also plans to use Hongmeng OS for tablets and PCs, as revealed in its trademark description that was approved by the Chinese National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) last month.

US State Department director for worldwide communications policy Jonathan Fritz said that only time would show if Huawei could diversify.

Looking at the activity, it seems clear Huawei is stepping up efforts to reduce its reliance on Google for provision of software for devices, and launch its own system.

The full effects of the trade ban have been postponed for 90 days, thanks to a temporary licence granted by the USA government.

Huawei has more significant headaches to deal with than the Mate X's launch for the moment, but it's not Trump's ban that's responsible for the Mate X's delayed launch.

He added that Huawei has prepared for this eventuality and has certain backup plans in place to continue its operations as normal should the U.S. prove uncooperative.

British lawmakers reject opposition move to block no-deal Brexit
If it had passed, it would have given MPs the opportunity to table legislation with a view to stopping no deal. Some MPs fear that a no-deal Brexit could cause some serious economic and political damage to the UK.

Information surrounding the operating system has begun to surface following the escalation of USA actions against Huawei, and many reports state that the operating system was initially code-named HongMeng OS.

That could pose a challenge to Google as the Chinese rival has massive power to shake up the market and attract developers and other Chinese peers to use its new operating system. Some publications have speculated that the OS would launch in the western market under this name.

There's an elephant in Huawei's folding room in the form of Google's Huawei ban, meaning after August, future Huawei smartphones won't be able to use the Android operating systems if a deal between Huawei and Google (but actually the USA and China) can't be struck. It meant Google took the decision to cut off Huawei's access to its Android operating system.

Russian news publisher The Bell now reports that Huawei could replace Android with the Aurora OS, which is based on the Linux Sailfish OS distribution from Finnish firm Jolla.

According to recent reports, the platform is referred to as HongMeng, but it could launch as Ark OS. Huawei has already reportedly received trademark clearance in China.

Huawei hasn't provided any specifics as to when the operating system could launch publicly, with Shao Yang, the chief strategy officer of Huawei's business consumer group, describing the release date as "a secret".
