The blacklisting, set to take effect after a 90-day reprieve, would require USA companies to ask the government's permission before doing business with Huawei.
Suffering a USA trade blacklist, China'sHuawei is preparing to fight back with new smartphones that will run on the firm's own proprietary operating system (OS), rather than Google's Android. However, the company has begun trademarking its "Hongmeng" operating system in at least nine countries, as well as Europe, which could be read as a sign that plans for the company's much-speculated-about Android replacement are starting to firm up.
It's a direct result of what Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer division, said earlier this year was the backup OS the company has been prepping for just such a turn of events like this, apparently long ago envisioning a day when it would need to wean itself off a reliance on USA companies. Huawei has been since filing trademarks for the operating system and asking developers to publish apps on its own Play Store alternative. The report further adds that in the test, the new OS was found to be 60% faster than Google's Android.
The company has denied its products pose a security threat.
Peru has some 5.5 million Huawei phone users. As per the report, this new OS seems to be compatible with all Android apps and is said to have "increased security functions to protect personal data". However, the world's second-largest maker of smartphones has not yet revealed details about its OS. Namely, employees of tech and entertainment giant Tencent, as well as Oppo and Vivo engineers.
Interestingly, Guo Mingxi also predicts that Huawei will manage to ship over 215 to 225 million units of its smartphones this year, despite the troubles between the United States and China.
Huawei, for sure, will face a challenge to build an ecosystem once it launches its OS, as getting all worldwide app developers on board to tweak their products for the new Chinese platform won't be too easy.
