LONDON: Mobile giant Huawei could have its own operating system for smartphones and laptops ready for use in China by fall this year, the head of the company’s consumer division told reporters on Wednesday.
Still, he stressed that would only happen if the company were completely stopped from using Google’s and Microsoft’s software.
The Chinese technology giant was placed on a U.S. blacklist that required American firms to get permission from the government before selling anything to Huawei. That meant Huawei would no longer be able to license the version of Google’s Android operating system that’s complete with all of the U.S. firm’s services. – With input from agencies
