Huawei is preparing for an Android Alternative in case the company gets banned from using Windows or Android.

The first word about Huawei’s Android alternative came out in 2016 when Huawei was working on building a backup OS for Android if the company would have to stick out of Google’s platform. At that time smartphone manufacturers did not wish to do that until they were obliged to do so. But the option of Android alternative was there since that time.

The OS has reportedly been designed for use on tablets, phones, and PCs, but has not been introduced yet because its capacity is not as good as Android and it does not have enough third-party developer apps.

The Huawei’s executive said,

In 2018, Huawei had gone through a tough time in the US, and the situation got worse last week when the US Department of Justice started investigating the company for allegedly breaching the country’s sanctions against Iran.

Over the fears of a potential threat of spying, the US government has tried to ban the company’s tech sales all over the world. The company’s CFO Meng Wanzhou has allegedly planned its attempts to outwit the US sanctions on Iran and as a consequence of it, he got arrested in Canada.

When rival phone manufacturer ZTE has sanctioned an export ban by US government for illegally trading telecom equipment and devices to North Korea and Iran, it’s possible that the idea of building an Android alternative was struck to Huawei at that time.

Chinese telecom and hardware giant chairman Richard Yuin said in an interview with Die Welt,

None of this has hampered the global growth of Huawei. According to Techcrunch, there has been a 50 percent jump in the company’s revenue.
