The US-China trade war has triggered Chinese telecom giant Huawei to develop its own operating system to replace Google's Android. According to the Global Times report published on their Twitter handle, the operating systems being developed in China are named "HongMeng OS" and "Oak OS" respectively.

Both operating systems will have the same functionalities, as "HongMeng OS" will be deployed on Chinese variant smartphones and "Oak OS" will power its international market. The Chinese version will come with pre-installed regional languages, and Oak OS will include the English version, PhoneSpeck has learned.

The new OS appears to be officially available in August or September, reports suggest. To recall, the Trump administration banned US tech firms from trading with Chinese companies. The US government decision led Google to close ties with Huawei. Recently, Facebook also announces the suspension of its apps, which come preinstalled on Android-powered Huawei phones.

As a precautionary measure, Google warned that shutting down business with Huawei may increase national security risks, as the US will lose control to android-alternative-powered phones. In addition, Huawei's new OS can take on Android and this way, it may affect Google's business in the international market.

Huawei's "Oak OS" could initially come with instabilities, but in the future, they will be able to make it one of the most powerful and advanced operating systems, as time served.
