Chinese conglomerate Huawei’s President Wang Chenglu has revealed that Huawei is all set to bring its custom-made operating system ‘HarmonyOS’ to its smartphones range in 2020.

“If we’re still not allowed [by the US government] to access Google’s Android service, we will consider using our own HarmonyOS. In fact, our OS is ready, but we will not use it in the first place as we’re still considering a relevant decision and cooperation,” Chenglu was quoted as saying.

Under the terms of the previous US trade ban, Google was barred from selling Android license to Huawei, meaning its phones could use the base open-source code, but would not have access to the all-important Play Store and Google apps.

The company has already launched “HarmonyOS” with Honor Vision TV series.
