Huawei to launch alternatives for Android and Windows by the end of the year, says executive

The pressure from the United States government is causing Huawei to lose a number of partnerships . With this, the Chinese can no longer use Android on their smartphones and Windows on their notebooks.

Anticipating this type of trade embargo, the Chinese giant had been organizing a "Plan B" since last year. Now Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei, told CNBC that the company may launch its operating systems in the fourth quarter:
"Today, Huawei is still committed to Microsoft Windows and Google Android. But if we can not use that, Huawei will prepare Plan B to use our own operating system".

Yu also said that in principle the alternatives will be dedicated only to the Chinese public , and an international version may be made official in the first or second quarter of 2020. To circumvent a possible lack of applications, the Chinese also wants to boost its " App Gallery ".

With this, the company manages to deal with the problem of being without the support of Android and Windows on their devices. However, Yu points out that this is not Huawei's favorite option.

'We do not want to do this, but we will be forced to do so because of the US government. I think this kind of thing is not only harmful to us, but it's also bad for American companies because we support a lot of US businesses. Unfortunately we will be forced to do this alone. We do not want to do it, but we do not have another solution or choice.'

While seeking to create alternatives in the software field, Huawei also has another major headache to administer in the field of hardware . That's because ARM can no longer license patents and aid in the development of Kirin processors.

Thus, the company faces a major technological challenge while the US-China trade war is not resolved.
