Huawei has backup Android plan

Huawei CEO denies he's under Beijing's thumb

The US has long accused Huawei of spying at the behest of the Chinese government, but tension between the two has reached new highs since the start of 2018, culminating in the recent arrest of CFO Meng Wanzhou-the daughter of company founder Ren Zhengfei. The Huawei chief revealed that the proprietary operating systems are the company's Plan B and will only be put into effect if Huawei is forced to cut business ties with US-based partners like Google and Microsoft. The company wrote in its lawsuit that the U.S. "unconstitutionally singled out Huawei for punishment". The same punishment was handed out to ZTE a year ago over sanctions violations. In the few months before the trade ban was lifted, the company was affected so badly that it ceased major operating activities.

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has confirmed that it has developed its own proprietary operating systems (OS) and is ready to implement those in case its legal battle with the United States leads to a ban on the export of US-made products and services such as Android and Windows.

Huawei's smartphones use Google Android while its laptops run on Windows.

Should Huawei face the same ban, it will at least be more prepared. For PCs, though, Huawei uses Intel silicon, and if a ban were to take place, similar to how it did for ZTE, Huawei would need to look elsewhere for its laptop-grade processors.

Published last November, the " contract " asks people to commit to a free web, and to respect the right to privacy, among other principles.

However, Huawei has confirmed it has a backup OS in case that happens.

The executive has also confirmed that it has prepared its own operating system.

"Android and Windows will always remain our first choices", the source added.

The US alleges during meetings with an unnamed banking institution in the US, Wanzhou misrepresented Huawei's ownership and control of Iranian affiliate Skycom.
