Huawei has a backup OS in case it loses access to Android

As tensions increase between Huawei and the United States government, Huawei has accommodated for all eventualities by preparing its own operating systems. While the clampdown on Huawei products is yet to evolve into a complete ban on using its products for all USA citizens, Huawei had apparently been busy developing its own operating systems as a contingency plan - something which has now been confirmed by none other than the company's CEO of Consumer Business Group.

South China Morning Post quotes a Huawei spokesperson as confirming that this operating system does exist, only that the company doesn't believe it would ever use it. As a matter of fact, media reports were coming in last year, when it was said the company was already "years" into building its OS. "That's our plan B. But of course, we prefer to work with the ecosystems of Google and Microsoft", the executive told German newspaper Die Welt in an interview published, Sunday, March 10.

Deadly school shooting reported in São Paulo
Sao Paulo state authorities say eight people have been killed in a school shooting in Brazil, including two student shooters. The two adolescent attackers, who were wearing face masks, killed themselves after the rampage, officials said .

However, Huawei has confirmed it has a backup OS in case that happens. "We fully support our partners' operating systems - we love them and our customers love them". We heard more about this OS in 2016. That Huawei may face a similar ban is not out of the realm of possibility.

A Huawei exec has told German news site Die Welt that it has made a backup OS for PCs and smartphones in the event that its troubles with the U.S. government prevent it from using Windows and Android on their PCs and smartphones. Alternatively, it could develop its own processors for laptops just like it's developing a backup OS. Other nations will make their own.
