Huawei could be dumping Android for in-house Kirin OS
Among the list of OEMs boasting of their own mobile operating systems could rank Huawei in no distance time, if the latest reports emitting from China are anything to go by.
According to Chinese media, Huawei’s mobile operating system is named Kirin OS and has been in development and under cover for the past three years. It could finally make it to the scene anytime from now. However, life without Android proves so hard for so many OEMS — even Samsung.
Taking a look at the top smartphone companies providing their own OSes (apart from Apple), it looks like virtually only Microsoft depends on it’s own OS (Windows Phone) and its OS alone. With BlackBerry relying on Android for apps, Samsung’s Tizen OS is used to power only smartphones in the Samsung Z lineup while the major driving force in the Korean company comes from sales of Android-powered Samsung phones.
So, with that being said. It’s no brainier to think that Huawei will introduce Kirin OS in smaller phones, gradually teasing the market and eventually bringing it wider instead of just throwing the OS inside all their devices at once.
Huawei is one of the biggest telecoms companies in the world, controlling a huge chunk of Chinese market share from third position and only behind Apple and Xiaomi. The phone maker has scheduled a New York, USA event on June 2nd and anything could happen there including the launching of their new OS. We’ll keep you updated to see how everything pans out.
