Things like that don’t happen in the mobile industry these days, but Huawei are gearing up for turbulent times ahead – they’ve gone as far as to develop their own OS in case they part ways with Android.
The popular Chinese company have had Android support on their products since 2009 (that’s a decade folks) but given its current state of affairs surrounding company CFO Meng Wanzhou, Huawei may well lose a foothold in the market.
According to BGR, a separation from Android could be in the cards for Huawei, and the company is ready to implement their own OS if they need to.
The upcoming Huawei P30 and P30 Pro phones are set to be revealed soon and should steady the ship for a while; the Huawei Mate X – if anything – is a sign a sign that the company isn’t ready to fold just yet. The Mate X won several awards (over 30 in fact) at the recent MWC 2019, so its safe to say Huawei is putting up a fight.
But the public are pretty much split between iOS and Android users – an unfamiliar OS may push away even the most loyal of fans.
