We expect that Huawei will address the current development of the HarmonyOS operating system and its availability for the global markets. On the other hand, the Chinese tech giant will surely be bringing a new version of EMUI for global consumers. However, there could be new devices that may launch afterward and we’ll keep you posted on all of the development.

Canada to ban Huawei from 5G: Report
Huawei has been under a lot of difficulties for the last three years due to U.S. sanctions, which have led to bans on its network equipment in different markets. However, despite various processes, Canada has now also shown its direction on this matter to ban Huawei from 5G development in the country.
According to the report coming from Reuters, Canada is planning to ban Huawei from its 5G network gear installation program citing national security risks without showing any of them.
The country is following the path of the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing group including five countries including the U.S., U.K., Australia, and New Zealand.
“We intend to exclude Huawei and ZTE from our 5G networks,” Industry Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne told reporters in Ottawa. “Providers who already have this equipment installed will be required to cease its use and remove it under the plans we’re announcing today.”
Aside from this, the Canadian government has also laid down a deadline for carriers and network companies to remove their network 5G equipment by the year 2024. On the other hand, companies that use 4G equipment from Huawei will be required to remove the gear until 2027.
In 2018, Canada announce to review of the ongoing Huawei matter to adapt its network gear. Last, in 2018, Huawei’s Chief Financial Official is detailed Vancouver Airport.
regarding this matter, Alykhan Velshi, Vice President of corporate affairs for Huawei in Canada said with Canadian Broadcasting Corp that the company is still waiting to hear what sort of national security threats they think Huawei poses.
Adding to this, Velshi said, Huawei is completely operational in Canada and there are over 1500 employees in the country, most of them conduct research and development. Other than these, Huaewi continues to sell new products in the market.
Throughout the entire discussion, Huawei has been targeted by the different governments over political means but no one has not shown any sort of evidence against the Chinese tech firm.
Huawei registers ‘Huawei Soil’ trademark
On May 18, 2022, Huawei registered the ‘Huawei Soil’ trademark in China. This trademark application has document version 47543398 and the trademark has not been published yet. According to the information, Trademark Office held that the goods designated for use by the opposed trademark were Class 1 “silicones”.
The ‘Huawei Soil’ trademark class belongs to the same category as “unprocessed plastics; plasticizers” that were approved for use in trademarks such as “Huawei Zhixuan” cited earlier by the opponent. or similar goods.
In further terms, the opposed trademark completely contains the distinctive identification part of the trademark cited by the opponent, “Huawei”, and does not form a new meaning with an obvious difference. If it is used concurrently, consumers will be misunderstood.
