Huawei's smartphones use Google Android while its laptops run on Windows.

The proprietary operating system is Plan B from Huawei and it may use it if it is no longer allowed to use Android and Windows on its devices. "That's our plan B. But of course we prefer to work with the ecosystems of Google and Microsoft". Various company's have attempted and failed to break the duopoly by launching phones with different operating systems.

The OS has been rumoured for years, but Huawei confirmed its viability with the South China Morning Post saying it could be used if the company were cut off from Android or Windows.

Huawei has seen massive growth in the smartphone market in part because prices for Apple and Samsung devices have soared.

Huawei is cautious of export bans.

Meng remains under house arrest in Canada while the courts proceed with the case to extradite her to the U.S., which alleges that she deceiving financial institutions and put them in a position to violate sanctions against Iran. While an outright ban on ZTE was a devasting one, Huawei with its wealth of engineers has better chances of getting around such ban. Alternatively, it could develop its own processors for laptops just like it's developing a backup OS. After all, they do make their own smartphone processors. As of 2016, the company is reportedly still fine-tuning the OS.

A Huawei spokesperson quoted by the South China Morning Post confirmed the interview quote, also echoing Yu's sentiments regarding their continued preference for the US-made OSes. The company recently made a huge announcement regarding its future plans with its laptop and smartphone devices which now run Microsoft's Windows and Google's Android respectively.
