That Huawei is developing its own mobile operating system, began, if I’m not mistaken, in 2015. Then it was called Kirin OS.
These rumors over the years, surfaced several times over, but never any evidence is not there. In early September, the President of Consumer Business division of Software Engineering Department of Huawei Wong Chenglu said that Huawei is not even plans to develop its own operating system to replace Android.
It would seem, here it is the official statement. However, today the Internet has emerged not less than official statement of the opposite meaning. It is reported that Vice-President of division of mobile devices Huawei Bruce Lee said that its own operating system of the company is in the development stage. Launched since September time? Perhaps, but to me it seems more likely that the first statement was either knowingly false, or Chenglu just don’t know what does.
Anyway, the axle is supposedly being developed. At what stage of the process and when at least approximately to wait the system, is not specified. Does this make sense? Considering that Huawei is already the second in the smartphone market, and a couple of years going to be the first, I think it has. However, so far none of the alternative regarding the Android system failed to gain a foothold in the market, and even just to survive. Even Tizen, apparently, in this segment all.
