Huawei prepared own OS in case of Android, Windows ban

Huawei prepared own OS in case of Android, Windows ban

Huawei at a press conference held recently at its headquarters in Shenzhen, China, confirmed it has slammed a lawsuit against the USA authorities over the former ban on its telecommunications equipment.

Speaking to Die Welt, Huawei executive Richard Yu says, "We have prepared our own operating system, if it turns out we can no longer use these systems, we will be ready and have our plan B".

For the time being, however, Huawei doesn't seem to be in a position that would lead to a ban similar to ZTE's, as the company keeps denying all spying accusations and calls for governments to provide evidence that it's working for Beijing.

In an exclusive interview with CTV News' Chief News Anchor and Senior Editor Lisa LaFlamme, Huawei Technologies founder and president Ren Zhengfei is speaking out about his daughter's arrest in Canada and the controversy surrounding his company. We heard more about this OS in 2016.

Wanzhou was arrested by Canadian authorities in December and is awaiting an extradition trial set for May 8.

Huawei has confirmed that it has developed its own operating systems for smartphones and PCs.

A Huawei spokesperson confirmed to the South China Morning Post that it has its own backup OS in case it is cut off from Google's Android operating system.

The world's second-largest handset player by market share now uses the Android OS for its handsets and Microsoft's Windows for its laptops and tablets. "We don't expect to use them, and to be honest, we don't want to use them". Other nations will make their own.

The lawsuit alleges that the global Huawei CFO was detained and interrogated by airport customs, and her electronic devices searched, before informing her that she was under arrest.

Apparently it's called "Sunshine".
