China has come up with a replacement for Android in case of US sanctions

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei is working on its own operating system (mobile and desktop) to replace Android and Windows, writes South China Morning Post (SCMP), citing sources familiar with the company's plans.

According to SCMP, the company thought about its OS in 2012. The development has become topical after claims to Chinese telecommunications companies by the American special services, as well as because of the trade war between China and the United States. According to newspaper sources, Huawei is working on the OS in case of the worst case scenario – a ban on the use of American software in China.

The OS created by the company is still unstable and cannot work as well as, for example, Android. The Huawei edition has not officially confirmed the work on the operating system and said that in the near future they do not plan to release their own platform.

Relations between Beijing and Washington escalated after US President Donald Trump signed a decree in March to impose import duties on steel and aluminum, as well as a memorandum on combating "China's economic aggression." Beijing, in turn, set a 25 per cent duty on 130 American goods in early April.

In early 2018, Huawei planned to enter the US market by entering into an agreement with one of the largest US mobile operators, AT & T ;. But the American company refused to sell Chinese smartphones due to pressure from the Federal Communications Commission: the agency believes that Huawei is cooperating with Chinese intelligence agencies.

US intelligence agencies also do not recommend using smartphones from a Chinese manufacturer. The FBI, CIA, NSA and National Intelligence fear that Huawei and ZTE, a telecommunications company, are working for the PRC government.
