Huawei To Unveil New Operating System For Smartphones

The Chinese tech guru Huawei announced earlier today that it will be releasing the long-awaited new operating system meant for smartphones next week.

The move is all part of an all-out push into the software industry targeting US sanctions and taking on Google’s Android operating system.

In a short teaser on social media, Huawei tipped the June 2 launch of its HarmonyOS platform. This came in the same way an internal memo came to light. The company founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei outlined plans to go big in software.

In the software domain, the 76-year-old assured his staff of how the US will have little control over their future development.

Huawei’s plans are the latest sign of a radical transformation at the Shenzhen-based company. It is moving quickly into new product lines. They see this as less vulnerable to US pressure and a re-focus on its core domestic market.

When Donald Trump was still the president of the United States, he launched an aggressive US campaign to isolate Huawei in 2018.

He said China’s communist party could use the networking equipment Huawei installed worldwide for espionage or sabotage.

This saw the world’s largest maker of telecom networking gear barred from the huge American market and cut from global component supply chains.

Huawei also lost access to Google’s Android operating system. This is on top of the US pressuring allies to ban or rip out Huawei gear from their telecom networks.

Analysts have warned that creating a successful new mobile operating system is exceedingly difficult. This is because, in the current world, iOS and Android are firmly entrenched.

However, the Tech World will watch next Wednesday’s launch closely. Huawei gave no further details other than the timing.
