In the trade confrontation between China and the United States, a truce is planned, it seems that both sides realized that a bad world is better than a good war. The first sign of an improvement in relations between countries was Trump’s announcement about easing sanctions restrictions against Huawei.
In the case of formalization of the lifting of the prohibitions to work with US corporations, the Chinese company will have the opportunity to continue to use Google software products and, in particular, the Android operating system for their devices.
One of the vice-presidents of Huawei has now confirmed that the previously announced operating system HongMeng was not originally intended for smartphones. This universal system, according to the developers, can manage computers, tablets, smart home devices, and transport.
The company still started testing the operation of OS HongMeng on smartphones. However, politicians intervened in technology, and now the system will be used only in industry: for televisions, routers, computers, tablets, logistics systems and data centers.
Huawei's cooperation with Google will continue, and the Chinese will be able to install Android OS on their smartphones. However, for this, Trump's statement should take the form of a decree or a law, since already on August 19, a temporary relief is being completed allowing American companies to work with Huawei without restrictions.
