Contrary to initial thinking, Huawei may be prevented from using the Android operating system. According to United States copyright laws, after being blacklisted, Huawei will not have access to either version Open source Android (AOSP), which could be the basis of your own operating system.
At an early stage, it seemed that the manufacturer would already have a contingency plan for this event through a possible partnership with the Aptoide application store. But everything can get more complicated and you may not be able to offer your users Android applications.
Being Android an operating system Open source, companies can make copies of the base code to create their own projects. But by banning domestic companies from contracting with a particular brand / manufacturer, they 'destroy' access to open access licenses.
Android apps on Huawei smartphones could be just a mirage
In this case, the US government has banned all domestic companies from doing business / partnerships with Huawei. As a result, the manufacturer is unable to obtain the license to use the AOSP code.
Without legal access to code Open source of Android, the future smartphones of the Chinese manufacturer would be unable to run Apps created for the operating system of Google. Most likely, this operating system would turn out to be completely powerless when compared to Android / iOS.
I look back at examples like Windows Mobile and Samsung's Tizen, which eventually disappeared because it couldn't guarantee an app offering that captivated users. The same scenario could happen with Huawei's alleged operating system.
Donald Trump will be able to 'double' Huawei
The 'battle' between Huawei and Donald Trump's government has been going on for a long time, where accusations of espionage have been emerging more and more frequently. However, this is not the first manufacturer to be the target of these charges.
ZTE, too, was the target of a similar attack, but presented itself as a much more 'accessible' target by easily surrendering to US impositions.
Recently, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei has once again assumed a confrontational stance against US threats, revealing that they will not give in to pressure.
Despite his claims, it is possible that Ren Zhengfei may have little choice but to give in to US conditions. O ban applied to Huawei could have far more serious repercussions than might be expected. Therefore, the manufacturer's only 'survival' solution may even be to give in to pressure from the United States.
It follows the controversy of Huawei:
