Vice President of Huawei Bruce Lee confirmed the company’s commitment to abandon Android in favor of Kirin OS.
Now alternative operating system Chinese manufacturer is under an «average development».
As noted by Lee, the company aims to create its own ecosystem, so such a project is absolutely vital. It is expected that Huawei will demonstrate Kirin OS in early 2019.
The platform is developed on the basis of the Linux kernel, and the project received its name in honor of the eponymous processors Kirin. In September, Huawei presented the world’s first commercial processor, made on 7-nanometer technology, Kirin 980.
The company also prepares 5G-smartphone with curved display. The novelty will show during the exhibition Mobile World Congress 2019, which will be held in February next year.
