Without Google, Huawei Still Expects To Be The Top Smartphone Brand

To retain its customers, Huawei is forced to quickly develop its own Harmony OS.

2019 is a turbulent year for Huawei. Earlier this year, this company and its subsidiaries were included in the list of entities that US companies were not allowed to transact without government licenses. Despite the disadvantages, Huawei somehow managed and stood up. The company even claimed that it can still maintain its leading position in the global smartphone market without Google backing.

To retain its customers, Huawei is forced to quickly develop its own Harmony OS.

Huawei has been banned from using Google's core products and services, Google apps, and the Google Play Store. For the Chinese market, this is not a big deal but it is a big issue in India or Europe markets as the majority of users use Google products and services. To retain its customers, Huawei is forced to quickly develop its own Harmony operating system that will be running on all of its products, which includes smartphones.

Honor's President of Overseas Marketing and Sales department, Jamez Zou, in a response to an interview, stated that the company had previously thought that Android was an open-source so it had worked with Google for an open ecosystem. The reason is that Google previously acquired the Android empire, including Huawei. Now without AOSP, as well as Google Mobile Services, Huawei would have to find a way to develop its own mobile services.

Huawei does not want to spend a lot of time improving the situation.

Although being banned from Google services has affected Huawei's international business, the company does not want to spend a lot of time improving the situation. In fact, it is actively developing Huawei Mobile Services to provide users with a more comprehensive ecosystem.

In case that Huawei can find other US suppliers to replace Google, it is less likely that the company will return to its previous versions, stated by Huawei CEO in CNN interview.
