Huawei is a biggest Chinese smartphone manufacturerÂ hasÂ made some great devicesÂ in the past few years, including the Nexus 6P. We have seen many companies buildÂ their own custom ROMsÂ based on Android, which isÂ nothing new. Samsung has even made its own Tizen operating systemÂ for itsÂ devices offering an Android-like experience.
Now,Â a new report claimsÂ that Huawei is making its own mobile 0perating systemÂ in case anything goes wrong with Google. Huawei devices currently work on their EMUI 5.0, which is their own custom ROM, built on top of Android. Last year, the company hired a former Apple designer to make EMUI better and give it a different look thanÂ iOSÂ as they bothÂ look quite similar.
In an interview, Abagail BrodyÂ told The InformationÂ that Huawei’sÂ mobile operating systemÂ is under development. It’sÂ not ready yet, and is in its early stage. They have hired developers who used to work for Nokia for this project, and it is being developedÂ inÂ Scandinavia. Though they might see no immediate use ofÂ this operating system, it can act as an alternative.
Smartphone manufacturers have maintained their standard with their own custom ROMs, developing something different than stock Android experience. If this operating systemÂ comes with new features and customiztion options, we may see huge demand like Huawei’s market in the smartphone sector.
