It is already known that Huawei is hard at work on a custom OS for mobiles to replace Android. Ren Zhengfei, the founder of the company, has stated recently that the new Huawei mobile OS, which is currently in development, could be faster than Android or even iOS. The interview, which was offered to a famous French news outlet, has attracted lots of attention.
Huawei Mobile OS to Be Faster Than Android and iOS
One of the most important claims made by Zhengfei is related to the performance of the upcoming Huawei mobile OS, which will reach a maximum value of 5 milliseconds. Ark OS will be compatible with a large selection of devices, ranging from printed circuits to data centers, switches, and smartphones.
Huawei is going through some hard times after an executive order signed by U.S. President Donald Trump. While the order itself prohibited American telecommunications companies from acquiring and using foreign equipment most of the market payers knew that it targeted Huawei in particular.
Huawei Fight The US Sanctions With A New Mobile OS That Might Threaten Android
The first frictions appeared in February 2018 when a selection of officials suggested that Americans should avoid devices made by Huawei and ZTE. The FBI representative mentioned the fact that Huawei could facilitate China’s influence over the American telecommunications infrastructure via 5G, which is championed by the Chinese company. The conflict escalated when the CFO of the company, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested on suspicions of violating the US sanctions against Iran.
The executive order was signed on May 15th, and it attracted immediate feedback from the company, which claimed that the U.S. would be forced to use an expensive alternative which may harm the consumers and other companies in the long run. A large number of companies decided to cut ties with Huawei, including Google. Accordingly, Huawei mobile OS, designed to replace Android on Chinese devices, might be faster than Android and even iOS.
