Huawei to unveil own OS within a year

Huawei to unveil own OS within a year

U.S. President Donald Trump added Huawei to a trade blacklist last week, leading several companies to suspend business with the world's largest telecom equipment maker, a move that could weigh on their sales.

A company spokesman in Australia said the United States actions "will not impact consumers" with a Huawei tablet or smartphone in the country, or those planning to buy a device in the future.

"Even though you try to do the right thing and force a better balance in trade, it could have negative consequences". "It is an attack on the liberal, rules-based order", Liu added.

The spat has also drawn in Canada after Huawei's Chief Financial Oficer Meng Wanzhou, who is also Ren's daughter, was detained there in December following a USA extradition request related to alleged violations of Washington's sanctions on Iran.

Google will launch software updates and other tasks during the 90-day period.

"What has happened to the sacrosanct presumption of innocence?" he said.

As a result, Google planned to prevent Huawei from licensing its Android mobile operating system and forcing the firm to use a public version of Android obtained through the Android Open Source Project.

"Now it is happening to Huawei, tomorrow it can happen to any other global company", said Liu. They will be knocked out of the market sooner or later, and we didn't do much preparation for this. "We're a football in between this trade war", he told the BBC.

The reports also mentioned that the OS is now in the trial phase and will bring about a Huawei controlled ecosystem. It highlighted the risks of the restrictions and warned that United States firms could lose up to $56.3 billion in export sales over five years and 74,000 jobs in the country could be put at risk.

Google's decision comes after the U.S. Commerce Department granted a 90-day licence on Monday for any tech companies that need to work with Huawei to ensure customers have access to apps and security updates.

U.S., Japan, India, Philippines sail through South China Sea
China, which slams any movement of United States ships in the region, warned Washington again. "China firmly opposes such move". Navy will sail what are known FONOPS within that limit to challenge a country's excessive maritime territorial claims.


Over the past few months, the Chinese telecom giant has faced allegations that it has been spying and stealing commercial information on behalf of the Chinese government.

"We are temporarily putting a stop to buying Huawei phones from customers and stocking up - until further notice".

Washington's blacklisting of technology giant Huawei has taken a toll on USA semiconductor shares, but China-listed firms have rallied as investors bet they can gain from Beijing's stepped-up efforts to build a homegrown supply chain.

BNetzA President Jochen Homann said at the time that the new security requirements "apply to all companies equally".

Huawei - the world's fastest-growing smartphone supplier - recently surpassed Apple as the world's second-largest supplier of smartphones behind Samsung.

"If Trump orders bans, we will be greatly affected".

Macron, however, may be seen to be playing politics with Huawei.

Huawei has bracing for such a ban after the company watched fellow Chinese telecom ZTE struggle with a similar blacklisting maneuver past year. And Huawei kit is used the world over.

The US, for their part, have conclusively blocked Huawei from involvement in the development of their 5G infrastructure.

At present, the ban will have an impact on Huawei's low-end products, Ren said.

"We are pleased that Europe is coming out with its coordinated approach to 5G".
