2019 has been a brutal year for Huawei, which has been sanctioned by the U.S. government on suspicion of spying. The company later clarified its position and made some progress, but in the long run it did little to do business in the United States and some countries. At the same time, Huawei announced its own mobile operating system, which could be used in the worst case.
Huawei is currently selling its Android devices that do not include Google services. While consumers around the world are waiting for the U.S. to lift the ban, Huawei surprised everyone today with its new stance.
Fred Wangfei, Huawei’s manager in Austria, said the company had no plans to use Google services even if the Ban was lifted in the future. Huawei doesn’t want to rely on U.S. technology because it could be banned again in the future. Huawei’s plan is to build a third Android-based smartphone ecosystem, but not Google.
In 2020 alone, Huawei will invest about $3 billion to develop huawei mobile services that will replace Google Play services. HUAWEI HMS Core is a collection of Huawei Mobile Services open features that help developers effectively build high-quality applications. Huawei has also developed App Gallery as an alternative to the Google Play Store.
