Huawei Keeps Android as Primary OS, Harmony Is Just a Backup
Huawei might be working on a new operating system for their hardware, but the company seems intent on keeping Android as the primary OS for their phones, at least for now.
When the United States put Huawei on a special naughty list, which prohibited American companies from doing business with the Chinese hardware maker, it became evident just how much Huawei depended on Android.
In fact, it was revealed that Huawei depended a lot of American technologies and patents, which forced the company to look for alternatives. It’s possible to find hardware alternatives for ARM and other components, but there is no real alternative for Android. The only option is to build your own OS.
