It would be recalled that Huawei at a launch event in June teased the audience with the P50 series, when it unveiled HarmonyOS, its own mobile operating system designed to replace Google Mobile Services on its smartphones as well as an array of consumer devices.
“For reasons you are all aware of, a launch date has not been set,” Yu said at the June event.
The Huawei brand, a global telecoms supplier and phone manufacturer, has been under major scrutiny in recent years, with the US and some European countries banning the use of its equipment in their 5G networks.
The company’s chairman had predicted “difficult” times for Huawei, and there certainly have been challenges. The US has continued to pressure allies to block Huawei from their next-generation 5G wireless networks.
