We’ve all heard about the trade war between the US and China, and the issues companies have been facing due to the sanctions imposed by each other. Perhaps the biggest company to get affected from all the mess is Huawei, the biggest phone maker in the world - as the US President didn’t want the manufacturer to grow, stripping it off of Google services, and putting a lot more sanctions on it on top. Even the Kirin chips that are exclusive to Huawei phones are expected to stop for future devices as TSMC, the maker of those Kirin chips is based in China, and the US isn’t going to allow them to supply any more processors to the Chinese company.
Now, Huawei is trying to make everything of its own, as it plans to switch all Huawei devices onto their own software instead of relying on Android for that. EMUI 11 and HarmonyOS 2.0 were both announced at Huawei Developers Conference 2020, as the Chinese giant has stated that it will move all Huawei devices that need less than 128MB on HarmonyOS 2.0 by this September - this includes smartwatches, smartbands, car systems and more. By April of 2021, this will be opened to phones upto 4GB, and by October, it will move to all higher end devices too.
