Huawei developing its own Android alternative called Oak OS

In May 2019, Google, Intel, Broadcom, Qualcomm, and others firms were stopped from doing business with Huawei, under orders from the US government.

Due to a ban, Google could no longer update its Android operating system on Huawei's smartphones.

Alphabet Inc's Google said formerly that it would no longer offer Android software for Huawei phones after a 90-day respite permitted by the USA government terminates in August. It's also worth noting that Huawei has also reportedly been in negotiations with 3rd party app store, Aptoide, as another alternative.

It has been revealed that Huawei are sending out emails to app developers inviting them to publish their apps on Huawei's new AppGallery.

Along with the ban, the United States has lobbied its allies to avoid partnerships with the company, claiming that the Chinese government has control over its activities and accusing the firm of installing "backdoor" access tools in its devices to allow Beijing to spy on its users.

This also means updates for those who have Huawei devices will stop coming and at the end, they will eventually lose the functionality of those apps. The retailer believes that Huawei will survive using a new software that is developed in house and might be much better than Google's. Well, industry experts have predicted the sales of the Huawei products are likely to go down due to the impact of the ban, the Europen country Germany appears to be the first country, wherein the Huawei smartphones have hit low, reports WinFuture. The company said today that it was victimized by U.S. Within Huawei's email to Google Play developers, the Chinese OEM says that "half" of all its 350 million smartphones are sold outside of China. Now, HUAWEI needs more apps to be running on its new platform so that it can replace the Play Store that Android users have gotten used to. Since then, we've seen hardware suppliers, chip designers, standards organizations, and other companies pull out of deals with Huawei. Huawei is by some measures the number one or number two top seller of phones worldwide, and if it suddenly rushed into creating its own OS, things would get messy very quickly.
