Huawei has no alternative operating system except ‘Android’: Huawei Founder

Published

Android

A number of Huawei Executives has already been denying the existence of ‘Android alternative’, and a new statement from the company’s founder reveals that the company is fully relying on Android for its smartphones.

Google is still trying to supply Android services to Huawei

Huawei founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei in an interview with YahooFinance said while Huawei has since shifted its supply chains to source from non-American chipmakers, it 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.

Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is scheduled to be launched later this month in China, Mate 30 in Q4 and foldable phone Mate X in somewhere around Q3 of this year but Ren said any of these launches could be delayed if the devices are not supported by Android.

“We are discussing this kind of issue, but right now we have only Plan A, to prepare the launch of our new products with Android,” he said.

The US Commerce Department added Huawei into the trade blacklist in May, which bars the tech giant from doing business with the US firms, meanwhile, the commerce has provided 90 days reprieve to continue serving its existing users, as well as an allowance to use Android and its software updates.

Back in March, ahead of Huawei’s inclusion in the entity list, Consumer Business Group CEO, Yu Chengdong said the company has prepared its ‘Plan-B’ OS in case it’s abandoned from using Android or Windows.

The OS was trademarked as ‘Hongmeng’ and reports also hint that the company was surely building something for smartphones but we don’t know why it’s not been applied in actions, is it because of resumption of Android services or something else? let us know what do you think of this situation of Huawei.

Do you think Kirin chips will return next year?

Kirin return next year

There is a bunch of news surrounding Huawei‘s comeback in the chipset market. On the other hand, there’s a question tagged – whether the company will return to the Kirin franchise next year.

Reports suggest that Huawei is gathering support from Chinese semiconductor makers. The aim of this partnership between Huawei and Chinese firms is aimed to make a breakthrough in the chipset market.

Meanwhile, Huawei has not given any official node on this matter.

Following the last two news, readers have asked us whether the company would make a return with Kirin chipsets. On that, we don’t have an exact answer but we can check some facts before we jump to the conclusion.

Recent Report:

According to the source, Huawei initially plans to make network equipment chips, not smartphone processors. Because mobile chipset requires advanced lithography technology as compared to network equipment. Yet, the deadline for this achievement is set around this year.

That’s how we cannot deny the possibility of Huawei for the return of Kirin next year. However, we do believe that the company needs 5G RF component before proceeding with the mobile processor. As the company already has access to Snapdragon chips.

Still in development:

Past insights reveal that HiSilicon has not stopped researching semiconductor design. This would help the company to make a good comeback, once the printing services reconnect to build new Kirin processors.

Backdrop:

Back in 2019, Huawei has been prohibited to get U.S. technologies. The company cannot purchase new techs or sell them. In 2020, the U.S. further extended this ban and stopped Huawei from printing new chips via third-party manufacturers such as TSMC.

Kirin 9000 was the last Kirin that made its debut with the Huawei Mate 40 series. In the aftermath, the phone maker has saved some inventory for later released products such as Mate X2 and P50 series. However, it later decided to switch completely to Snapdragon processors but due to the lack of RF processors, the company cannot add 5G touch in new smartphones.

Still, Huawei keeps on digging for new ways to access new technologies and resolve the current difficulties.

Huawei 5G Massive MIMO

Huawei has decided to commercially deploy the third-generation 5G Massive MIMO in the global markets. And, to begin with, the company has initiated the assembling procedure of the product from the Philippines region.

According to the latest information, the Huawei 5G Massive MIMO is capable of achieving the best performance with the lowest power consumption. Further, it involves several advanced and new-generation innovative technologies for managing operations.

For instance, ultra-wideband, multi-antenna, and extremely large antennas. Together, these components improve spectral as well as energy efficiency. Besides, it also aids the industrialists to maintain green, simplified and high-end 5G networks.

So far, the Philippines has been constructing the 5G infrastructure for three years. On the flip side, it executed several Massive MIMO products to continuously deliver 5G facilities among users as well as maintain the 4G demands.

However, in the recent few years, the 5G techniques have overtaken the network spectrum. And the latest MIMO product can face all the hurdles to meet the required network development. The proof is the download and upload speeds which are 35% more than the normal network solutions.

Moreover, it enlarges the coverage area of the network by 30 percent. Eventually, it surrounds the large inter-site distances that other technologies usually don’t.

5G Massive MIMO – a step towards sustainable development!

The President of Huawei’s Wireless Solution – Yang Chaobin gives the following details of the third-generation 5G Massive MIMO product:

“Ultra-wideband, multi-antenna, and extremely large antenna arrays are important innovations for improving coverage and reducing energy consumption. We believe that continuously improving the utilization of air interface resources will be conducive to the sustainable development of the communications industry in the Philippines.”

The new solution relies upon the 8T8R Smart MIMO technology that enables the coverage of 1900MHz. On the other hand, it works for three crucial factors: network elements, reliable services, and interconnection mediums. Thus, with this solution, the railway sectors would be able to bring durable communication conditions.

The President of Huawei Enterprises Wireless Domain delivered a short speech on how this solution will add more digitization:

“The railway industry is now in a critical period of digital transformation. When the requirements for train-to-ground wireless communication systems are already higher than ever before. Huawei FRMCS can meet these requirements by integrating Huawei’s 4G and 5G technologies. It can help railway customers build high-reliability, high-bandwidth, future-oriented train-to-ground wireless broadband networks that are safe, reliable, converged, simplified, and capable of long-term evolution.”
