Following the US restriction on Huawei, Google also suspended its business with Huawei and canceled sharing hardware, software, and its services except for the ones with open source license.

Later on, the US eased its restriction on Huawei and provided a temporary license for 90 days to manage the business with its existing users, allowing Google to send software updates to Huawei phones including monthly security patches.

According to the official, Huawei’s “App Gallery” will be served as a default app store on its own operating system, which is currently set to Google’s Play Store for default use.

Yu also noted that the company will only bring a new OS if it will be completely prohibited from using software from Google and Microsoft.

“We don’t want to do this but we will be forced to do that because of the U.S. government. I think the U.S., this kind of thing, will also not only be bad news for us but also bad news for the U.S. companies because we support the U.S. business, so we will be forced to do this on our own,” Yu said.

“We don’t want to do this but we have no other solution, no other choice,” he added.

Recently we found that the mysterious OS will be named as Hongmeng/Hong Meng (possibly for the domestic market) and will universally work on all Huawei devices.

Most of Deng Li's smartphones are from the Huawei ecosystem and his first Huawei phone was Ascend Mate 2 (4G). As a tech enthusiast, he keeps exploring new technologies and inspects them closely. Apart from the technology world, he takes care of his garden.

Apple Huawei MatePod trademark

Clarification:

Although, the intellectual believes that the cited trademark (Apple accessories) and opposed trademark (Huawei MatePod) share the same functionality, marketing, and belong to the same industry. Still, the English latter composition, pronunciation, and overall appearance of both trademarks are easily recognizable.

Hence, there is no clashing scenario, so it won’t cause any confusion to the consumer of both companies. Moreover, the opponent’s claim of imitating the names hasn’t adequate facts, so the intellectuals are granting permission to Huawei.

Huawei Trademark Dispute:

Sony and Huawei: The Japanese company files a lawsuit against the Huawei Watch GT series in the UK IPO office. The reason was its famous racing game series Gran Turismo’ which is generally abbreviated as GT. However, the China-based firm isn’t easy to give up its famous smartwatch series label.
