Huawei has had problems with the US government for over a year. The Chinese manufacturer is on a black trade list and is therefore no longer allowed to do business with Google, among others. The ban has been postponed several times, but unfortunately will take effect on September 15.
Huawei has indicated several times in the past that it would like to make smartphones and tablets with Android. It looks like it has not been awarded to Huawei. In the meantime, the Chinese company has been busy and has developed its own operating system.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei, announced during an interview with the Chinese website IT Home that we can expect the first Huawei smartphone without Android next year. Instead, the device runs on its own operating system HarmonyOS 2.0.
Huawei will present the latest version of the operating system during the Huawei Developer Conference 2020 this Thursday (September 10). According to the best man, the operating system is currently still intended for smartwatches, smart TVs, computers and cars. HarmonyOS 2.0 has been specially developed for smartphones and tablets of the company and should replace Android from next year.
