Huawei is restricted from trading with firms based out of the US. This makes Google and Apple’s OS inaccessible for the Chinese telecom giant. Hence, to solve this issue, Huawei is launching smartphones that’ll run on its HarmonyOS. The OS has a versatile UI and can run uniformly on other devices too. CEO Richard Yu said that “Huawei is ready with a HarmonyOS smartphone but was not able to launch it considering it was already in an agreement with Google”.
