Big Question: Can Huawei survive without Google’s Android?

Published

on


We were very happy when we first discovered about Huawei’s operating system, I know you all were too. But now those stories, news and leaked features remained as a beautiful dream.

I thought now the Chinese company can stand and fight against the United States because it had a self-made processor with its 5G modem and the company was all set to develop first unique (that what we heard) and universal multi-platform OS.

Those statements from Huawei’s official made us wait for the very first OS by the Chinese company. They were talking about the back-up OS, and they were saying that “We were preparing for the OS since 2012” now they all turned to false hope?

For your information (as I don’t want to make you sad, as much as I am right now, ) Huawei’s official never said this is the replacement OS for Android, they added one statement in every discussion – what was that?

“We are not looking to replace Google’s Android”

The above sentence is very clear and it makes sense to everyone who is currently reading. If you are still confused with all this OS news – you can read here.

Well, all was going in the right direction until we learned something big from Huawei’s Chairman, Liang Hua. He clearly said that the company ‘currently’ has no plans to develop OS for smartphones.

“We haven’t decided whether to develop Hongmeng into a smartphone OS yet,” Liang said.

But he repeated the same statement that we have heard many times in the last 2 months. Liang added, however, this position may change if the US completely bars Huawei from access to Android.

We heard the same from Huawei’s founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei. He said: Huawei has no alternative operating system to turn to if the U.S. government denies access to Google’s Android.

He also said the company is prioritizing development of its Hongmeng operating system, which is designed specifically for use in the Internet of Things like smart TVs, artificial intelligence, and autonomous driving.

“We will only look into developing our own smartphone OS when Android is no longer an option, but as of now, we don’t plan on it,” Ren said.

It broke my heart (and probably yours too). When I covered the story “Can Huawei make better smartphones without US parts” I was very confident in Huawei that the company now can make a good smartphone without the US tech (of course it must have its self-developed OS).

Huawei is all good to replace almost every part it uses in the development of the smartphone but… it can not replace the most important software – Android OS. Sadly, Huawei can’t do anything. It has to follow the rules made by the United States government because it has to use the OS made by an American company.

I have faith in Huawei, it can make OS for smartphones but it still depends on the company.

What do you think – Can Huawei survive without Google’s Android? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Barrier-Free Communication
  • Interesting Call

Among all three functions, lighting up the screen is the most highlighted and unique feature. You would have noticed that while connecting a video call, the screen stops abruptly. This often ends up showing some of your disgusting expressions to the other person.

However, with the lighting up the screen function, you can choose the way how your screen should look. For instance, you can present a personalized avatar, audio, video, and any other picture instead of showing the real-time scenario on camera.

On the flip side, the second function allows you to make a voice call without any barriers. It also lets you synchronize your calls with facetime action simultaneously. Further, it enhances the interaction connection and enriches the video quality.

Besides, the new 5G call feature will let you efficiently use the visual menu, remote troubleshooting, customer authorization, voice control, one-click direct access, and quick processing even when you are on a call. Ultimately, this feature will bring a new way to deal with calls and connect to your friends and colleagues.

Although, there is no information regarding when we would be able to use this feature. Regardless, if this is the upcoming future of the communication field then users will definitely enjoy it.

Huawei Satellite communication Samsung

Huawei and its satellite communication feature are tremendously trending around the world. Apple has also used this feature in iPhone 14 series. And it looks like, it’s time for Samsung to copy Huawei regarding satellite communication features.

Huawei technologies have always been a surprise to the world. Whether it is a new imaging system or design-oriented features, the company has served users with some awesome and eye-catching gadgets and attributes.

If we talk about the recent edition, the Chinese manufacturer has initiated a satellite communication feature with Mate 50 series. Following the lead, Apple also jumped on the ground and brought the respective part in its latest release (iPhone 14).

Ultimately, the two giant tech makers made the satellite subject quite popular in the market. And as a famous tech player, Samsung doesn’t want to remain behind in this race and is also planning to follow the same satellite communication path as Huawei.

Samsung – A new member in satellite connectivity!

According to the newest information, the Korean company might introduce satellite connectivity functions to its high-profile Galaxy smartphones. Though Samsung is just planning for the moment, we can’t say how much time it will take to bring the feature to the surface.

On the other hand, the information also suggests that Samsung could turn its face to another satellite connectivity provider rather than Globalstar. Since Apple has already shaken its hands with Globalstar for receiving 85% of its current and future network capacity. Hence, it doesn’t seem like there is any space left for Samsung.

Yet, other satellite connectivity providers could help Samsung in this aspect. As per the reports, the company can take help from Starlink services to implement the satellite features on its handset products. But confirmation from the company side still awaits.

Speaking of the satellite communication feature, Apple has such techniques that can send a short SOS message in just 15 seconds. However, the condition is that the function is only applicable under a clear sky. Otherwise, it can take more than minutes. Overall, we can say that Huawei scored much better in this subject than others.
