Will Huawei use Russia's Avrora OS

You might know about the trade war between two giants, the US and China. This trade war demolished the relation between Google and Huawei.

As Google discontinues Android OS support for Huawei. Which means that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei will no longer access the widely used Android OS along with all Google apps.

The ban of Android OS puts some new challenges in front of Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Huawei.

Some of these challenges include the introduction of a suitable OS for its devices.

Moreover, which app will replace the Google Play Store and how much that app hub will be appealing to users.

Although these challenges are tough, Huawei is not giving up and facing these challenges.

As the ban was announced, Huawei was preparing a new Operating System for its new devices as a replacement of Android OS.

However, the company did not explain this upcoming OS, but the rumors suggest that the new OS will be named as ‘HongMeng OS.’

Right after that, a new rumor sparked, and according to that rumor, Huawei will use a new OS from Russia. The new Russian OS “Avrora” will replace Android in Huawei smartphones.

Things are getting complexed now, and it is becoming more confusing.

It is reported that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is in talks with Russians’ communication ministry officials.

The company wants to get permissions from the officials for the use of the Avrora operating system.

Let me give a short overview of the Avrora operating system. This OS is based on Sailfish OS, which is designed by the Finnish technology company Jolla and it is entirely based on Linux.

The main difference between the Sailfish and Avrora OS is that the Avrora OS is not compatible with Android apps. However, the Sailfish OS can run Android apps.

For your information, the Sailfish OS is not a popular mobile OS, but it offers high security and privacy features.

Some rumors already suggest that Huawei is already testing the Avrora OS for its devices. But, there is no legit news or reports about this testing process.
