HUAWEI’s decision to move on from Android OS to HarmonyOS is likely due to the U.S government’s ban. The government has security concerns over the Chinese companies and did not allow U.S companies to sell any technologies and components to HUAWEI.

When Yu announced the operating system back in 2019, he said that it’s “completely different from Android and iOS”. Now, the company has no choice but to use their own OS if they want to keep producing smartphones.
