Huawei Could End Up Replacing Android with a Russian Operating System
Huawei still has a hard time figuring out which way to go after the company was banned from using Android on its smartphones, and according to a new report, the final pick could be none other than a Russian operating system.
United States President Donald Trump placed the Chinese tech giant on the Commerce Department’s Entity List in mid-May, essentially blocking the firm from doing any business with American companies and using their products.
As part of the restrictions, Huawei can no longer install Android on its new devices, so the company has been looking into several options already for its upcoming projects.
One of them appears to be going for Aurora OS, an operating system developed by Russian state-controlled telecommunications group called Rostelecom.
