Huawei Has Plan B Ready If It Ever Needs To Ditch Android
As many knows, Huawei is not on extraordinary terms with the U.S. government. As such as a careful step, it is planning for crisis situations, as by structure up against its own operating system in case Android becomes inaccessible.
What's "Plan B" for Huawei?
The squabble between the U.S. government and Huawei is not new. It intensified after the Chinese association sued the U.S. government, accusing Washington of being out of line. Despite the way that the lawsuit is still progressing, Huawei is getting ready for the possibility that Washington may constrain U.S. companies to end their partnerships with the Chinese association.
If it does happen, the move isn't absolutely exceptional. AT&T was constrained to sever ties with the Chinese association last year despite an understanding between the two covering sales of Huawei's Mate 10 Pro in AT&T stores. As a result, Huawei is presently getting ready for the worst-case scenario: the possibility that it may be cut off totally from Google's Android operating system. Most of the association's present smartphones continue running on Android.
In a continuous interview with the German newspaper Die Welt, Huawei CEO Richard Yu said the association has a "Plan B" arranged in case it loses access to the Android OS. This "Plan B" is its own proprietary operating system, which will be used if the need arises.
"Should it ever happen that we can never again use these systems, we would be prepared. That is our game plan B," the CEO said.
Regardless, Yu yielded that the association would need to stay with Android instead of switch to its own mobile OS.
Similarly, Huawei will supplant Windows on its notebooks with its own operating system, in spite of the way that the CEO says the association prefers "composed exertion with Google's ecosystems and Microsoft."
Google and Huawei have had an uncommon relationship so far. The Chinese association developed the Nexus 6P for Google and has been testing the Fuchsia OS on its smartphones. Thus, a situation in which Huawei is constrained to dump Android is doubtful, in any occasion until further notice.
This is the thing that we consider Huawei's mobile OS so far
Yu shared no details about Huawei's mobile OS, including features, yet we can foresee that it should be a "fork" because Android itself is open source.
This is not the first occasion when we are getting some answers concerning Huawei's mobile OS. Last year there were several rumors and reports suggesting the association was developing its own mobile operating system. The Chinese association finally avowed in November that it was developing a choice in contrast to Android. There are no further details about Huawei's mobile OS, anyway, rumors suggest it will be classified "Kirin OS."
Huawei has just switched from Google's Wear OS to its own proprietary operating system for the Huawei Watch GT. In any case, the switch for its wearable is for various reasons and not because of the fight with the U.S. government.
It is not just Huawei that has masterminded its own OS to lessen its dependence on Android. Samsung did likewise by structure up its Tizen OS. Nonetheless, the Korean association still is vigorously subject to Android.
Collapsing Mate X for 500 euros possible, anyway not presently
In his interview with the German newspaper, Huawei's CEO also talked about the collapsing Mate X and its ultra-premium sticker cost of $2,300. The CEO said that "after some time," they will likely bring the cost underneath "1,000 euros," yet they will require about one to two years to do it. The cost could at last fall into the "scope of 500 euros," yet that will "take longer" and would depend upon the popularity of the device.
"We can enliven massage at whatever point," he included.
You also talked about the possibility of a foldable iPhone, saying Apple may not offer such a contraption this year or one year from now either.
He also talked about various things like Huawei's target to be number one in the smartphone showcase. He said the Chinese association will surpass Samsung to be the overall smartphone pioneer "by one year from now at the latest. We are as of now close."
The Chinese association generally revealed that its Mate 20 series had hit the 10-million milestone since its dispatch in October. Not long from now, the Chinese association will dispatch the P30 and P30 Pro.
You also revealed that Huawei is wearing down enormous displays in the scope of 100 to 200 inches. Regardless, he shared no further details. It will interest see what the association plans to do with such tremendous displays.
