Huawei now wants to use the in-house operating system for more of its products coming up next year. However there aren't any plans at the moment to roll out the OS to its telephones, tablets and computer systems, amongst Huawei's hottest merchandise, the spokesman added.

As per a report, this plan was first revealed by the President of Huawei consumer business group's software division, Wang Chenglu to the government-backed Shenzhen Special Zone Daily newspaper during a store event.

It's important to point out the company hasn't got a nod from the U.S. government to resume business with companies such as Google just yet.

This is definitely some pretty disappointing news for us, as we were looking forward to a new operating system to shake things up a bit.

The problem is scientists and programmers have to chill contemporary quantum computers to near zero for them to function. This solution increases the qubits' performance and enables the creation of quantum systems with a bigger qubit count.

As part of those plans Huawei introduced Harmony OS in August as an alternative to Android. The company is also planning on introducing smart speakers and VR devices that will run Harmony.

According to him, "HarmonyOS" that will be available globally will not replace Android as Huawei still treats Android as preferred OS by choice but things will start moving on this front next year, media rpeorts daid on Monday.

The company told the Wall Street Journal it had a "clear preference" to continue using US-made hardware, but would do away with it "if that proves impossible".
