Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei is developing its own mobile operating system to reduce its dependence on Google’s Android, according to a report out of China. The OS has been in development for the past three years.
As per the report, the company – which according to market research firm IDC’s latest report is the third largest smartphone vendor in China – is also working on a new smartphone that would run the OS.
