If you recall, there have been reports recently that suggested Huawei is developing its own mobile OS. Now, in what could be seen as a possible reaction to these reports, the Chinese company’s CEO has said that they’ll keep using Android as long as its openness isn’t compromised.
He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google’s mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers.
Interestingly, he didn’t say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS – said to be called Kirin OS. His silence on the matter, though, can be taken as a confirmation of sorts, especially when his comment reflects the possibility of Google restricting the companies’ freedom with Android in future.
