Huawei CEO: if Google services are not available due to sanctions, then Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro will use HarmonyOS
Huawei is also considering launching sales of SoC Kirin to partners. Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro will use HarmonyOS next year. Google cannot prohibit the use of Huawei OS Android, as it is distributed as part of the Android Open Source Project, but Google services is a different kind of thing. Just Huawei may lose them: they say that the Mate 30, debuting on September 19, will not receive licensed applications and Google services due to US sanctions.
At IFA 2019, which is taking place in Germany these days and where Huawei brought a lot of new products, the company’s executive director Yu Chengdong was asked about further developments in the event that Google services and applications are still not available to Huawei.

The answer, in general, could be predicted, but from the lips of the executive director of Huawei it looks more significant: in this case, the company’s smartphones will be transferred to the HarmonyOS OS, but the first model with its own Huawei OS may be the Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro, coming out next year.
