Huawei says it has its own OS in case it gets banned

"Huawei does have backup systems but only for use in extenuating circumstances".

In an interview with Die Welt, company chairman Richard Yu said that globalized economies are interdependent on each other to survive - that means Huawei still has a place within American business.

The company filed a lawsuit against the USA government this month in a bid to overturn a ban on purchasing its technology by federal agencies and government contractors under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). We last heard about Huawei's own Android OS rival back in May a year ago.

Huawei envisages its battle with the Authorities could lead to a final ban on the export of US-made products and services like Android and Windows and is making all moves to obviate the effects on the company should it get to that. "We fully support our partners' operating systems - we love them and our customers love them".

If you haven't been following the news, tensions between Huawei and the United States are high.

Android and Windows are still the company's first choice. It is worth wondering that if Huawei says it' operating system is ready, it may have been working with third-party app developers as well.

The firm has been working on an operating system that could replace Android since 2012 when the U.S. opened an investigation into both ZTE and itself, according to the South China Morning Post.

The US has reportedly said it will cooperate less with German intelligence agencies if Germany allows Huawei to take part in its 5G build-outs.

The US has long accused Huawei of spying at the behest of the Chinese government, but tension between the two has reached new highs since the start of 2018, culminating in the recent arrest of CFO Meng Wanzhou-the daughter of company founder Ren Zhengfei.
