Huawei has been struggling with the US ban since 2019 and has had to live with many restrictions since then. It is precisely these restrictions that made the Chinese company feel significantly stronger and more independent. The next step will be taken soon, which will herald goodbye to Android – also under the hood.
Huawei is separating from Android
Some time after the US ban, Huawei introduced its own operating system with HarmonyOS, but Android was still running under the hood and Android apps could be installed manually. This will soon become history. Huawei will soon take the next step with ‘HarmonyOS Next’. Android will disappear as the basis for the operating system and be replaced by OpenHarmony (Source: mobiflip).
Huawei has taken this new path in China and is doing well with it In the field of software completely independent of American software. In the company’s home country, any services familiar in the USA are not used or rarely used. Accordingly, Chinese developers are likely to quickly jump on the bandwagon. To make this path easier for them, Huawei wants to invest 1 billion US dollars.
The big advantage of this step is that Thus, Huawei can perfectly adapt its software to the hardwareJust like Apple does with iPhones. Especially since Huawei now has its own processor and 5G modem available again, it could be improved even further.

Huawei changes focus
With the presentation of the Mate 60 Pro, Huawei showed that its priorities have changed. The focus is now on its home country of China, where the company is experiencing significant growth. In Germany, regular smartphones on which you can install Android apps manually do not sell well. Without Google services there is no chance. HarmonyOS Next can only be used on smartwatches. We will continue to monitor developments.
