Huawei is facing a severe cutout from a majority of US companies including Google. Google just recently ended its Android agreement with the Chinese company and immediately removed Huawei’s access to the famous Android operating system. The cut-off was due to a trade blacklist by the US government which was later relaxed temporarily.

In order to survive in the smartphone market, Huawei reported starting focusing on its indigenous operating system. To be called HongMengOS, the operating system is said to be about 60% faster compared to the Android operating system.
