Huawei coming back with a rival operating system
Three amazing flagship models including Huawei Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 lite coming soon this year. Huawei Mate 30 Lite will be released a few months before Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro.
In the autumn of this year, Huawei will launch its own mobile operating system, completely reducing the credibility of Google’s highly successful Android operating system, said Richard Yu, CEO of Consumer Business, told CNBC.
The timing is not surprising, given the recent discovery that Google has stopped all deals with Huawei in order to comply with the blacklisted US government bill. As a result, Huawei has lost access to any future updates to the open-source Android version of Google, including Android Q. Future devices will no longer work in the Google Play Store, which offers access to millions of mobile apps, movies, box sets, e-books and much more.

Huawei wants its Android competitor to be the last resort for its successful smartphones. It is expected that the operating system will be launched in China in the fall before it will be available in markets around the world in 2020, said the general director of the consumer.
The Google Play Store, Gmail, and other Google services, which are usually pre-installed in the Android operating system, are not available on mobile phones sold in China, which makes the transition less painful for users.
However, it is unclear whether Huawei has enough brand loyalty to convince customers to switch to their own operating system. This affects access to your favorite applications and knowledge of the operating system.
Huawei already has its own competitor in the Google Play Store, the so-called Huawei App Gallery, installed on its smartphones, although this is not the default. If successors such as the Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro use the Huawei mobile operating system, the Chinese company must convince developers to create completely new and separate versions of their most popular applications – such as Facebook, Instagram, Netbook, Netflix, Now TV, Trainline, Amazon, Sky and more – in the new store.
Microsoft tried to do this with Windows Phone – and failed. Samsung also tried to do it several times alone: first with the so-called Bada operating system, then with TizenOS, which still successfully controls the Galaxy Watch Active and other wearable devices. Both Bada OS and TizenOS were cut off from the new phone models.
Whether Huawei will have enough leverage to succeed where Microsoft has failed, is still unknown. Even if each developer decides to involve teams to develop a new version of their services, which only Huawei users can use, it will take some time, and it is unlikely that these applications will be available in less than a year.
Huawei insisted that its own operating system be introduced only if the company was permanently blocked to use Google products.
“We do not want to do this, but we will have to do it because of the US government, and I think that for the USA it will be not just bad news for us, but bad news for American companies, because we support business in the US, so we will have to do it alone, “said Richard Y. to CNBC.
“We do not want this, but we have no other solution, no other choice.”
The autumn release date of the Huawei operating system is interesting, as it usually announces the newest smartphone of the Huawei Mate series. These mobile phones, as a rule, are targeted at performance-oriented users, similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note line. Huawei is expected to debut this fall with the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. Thus, they may be the first to launch a completely new operating system.
