Huawei runs for cover: Kirin OS ready for debut?
The first effect of this action will obviously fall on the world market since Huawei will no longer have access to the Google Play Store and to the suite of services of Google. In addition also the subsequent versions of Android may not arrive on the current and future smartphones of the Chinese company. This decision could also affect the sub-brand of Huawei or Honor.
It is important to point out that Android is a project Open Source that anyone can use and modify but Google offers, for a fee, development support and access to Google Play Store. Therefore the absence of such conditions would prejudice the correct use of theOS as it happens at present.
This apocalyptic scenario is therefore becoming reality e Huawei, as anticipated in the past, it could run for cover by formalizing its Kirin OS that, as communicated several times by the company itself, is ready and working. This operating system, or a custom Android fork, was developed precisely to counteract the possible ban on Google to use its services. Huawei spends about 11 billion dollars every year in business relationships with US companies such as Intel, Qualcomm e Google in the purchase of hardware and software components.
Waiting for a press release from Google and a statement by Huawei we take, despite the reliability of the news, this information with the benefit of the doubt and the hope that a solution will be found to this absurd and paradoxical situation in order to avoid a disaster in style ZTE. At the moment it is conceivable that the break between the two companies could only affect the new devices and not the current range, which however would remain the current version of Android.
