Huawei smartphones may switch from Android to Russia’s Aurora operating system
 

 
China’s Huawei, which lost access to the latest update to the Android operating system as a result of the U.S. ban, may receive some help from Rostelecom and Russian businessman Grigory Berezkin, which together own the developer of the Russia’s mobile operating system, Aurora. Aurora was built on the basis of Finland’s Sailfish.

Ahead of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Huawei Deputy Chairman Guo Ping discussed the possibility of switching the Chinese smartphones to Sailfish with Russian Minister for Digital Development and Communications, Konstantin Noskov, according to two sources familiar with the discussions who spoke with The Bell. The issue was raised during the meetings between Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, another source explained.

The talks. According to a federal official, talks are underway in two areas.

The first is installation of the Aurora operating system on various Huawei devices. Aurora might be installed on the Chinese company’s devices instead of Google’s Android, which the Chinese company cannot use to the full extent after the U.S. ban. “China is already testing devices with Aurora installed on them,” a source close to the government told The Bell.
The second is local production in Russia of some of Huawei’s devices. Discussions are focused on potentially launching joint production of chips and software.
A spokesman for Rostelecom told The Bell that they have not heard about the talks, but the company is prepared to work with all developers of mobile solutions. Huawei did not comment.

What Russian operating system? The Sailfish operating system is developed since 2012 by the Finish company, Jolla, which was founded by former Nokia executives. In 2014, Russian billionaire Grigory Berezkin became a co-owner in Jolla and signed an agreement with the Ministry of Communications about the creation of a Russian national mobile operating system on the base of Sailfish. Since 2016, a company tied to Berezkin, Open Mobile Platform (OMP), has been developing the Russian version.

In 2016, Berezkin told Vedomosti that the operating system was not intended solely for officials and governmental structures, but rather for “ordinary users”. But since then, Russia hasn’t seen the arrival of a large number of smartphones running on Sailfish. The only one available for retail purchase, Inoi R7, is produced in China for a Russian company since 2017.
In May 2018, Rostelecom bought 75% of OMP from Berezkin. After this, it emerged emerged that state officials and employees of state-owned companies and the government would all be transitioned to mobiles with Russian operating systems. The cost of supplying 8 million users with devices running on Sailfish was estimated at 160 billion rubles ($2.5 billion). In May 2018, Rostelecom renamed the Russian version of the operating system as Aurora.
Rostelecom instead of Google. Huawei was in desperate need of an alternative operating system after the Chinese company was added to the U.S. Department of Trade’s blacklist. After this, Google was among several U.S. companies to stop working with Huawei, and refused to provide support for the Android operating system, on which all of Huawei’s smartphones outside of China operate. After the latest Android update, owners of Huawei smartphones will lose access to all Google apps: Gmail, the Chrome browser, YouTube and the app store Play Market.

Huawei itself announced that these bans cannot impact devices already released by the company on which Play Store and Google services continue to work, and therefore, the smartphones can be updated. In addition, Huawei can use the open version of Android, therefore the company’s next smartphones sold outside of China will be able to be sold with that version of the operating system.
The Chinese company prepared for the ban ahead of time. In the spring of 2018, the company announced announced that it is developing its own mobile operating system to replace Android. In March 2019, Huawei executive director Richard Yu said that Huawei’s own operating system was already ready, but reports of the timeline for its real adoption vary vary — from fall 2019 to second quarter 2020.

This statistic shows the mobile OS (operating systems) market share in the United States from January 2012 to March 2019. In March 2019, 52.1 percent of U.S. smartphone subscribers were using a Google Android device. Apple was the second most popular mobile OS with a market share of 47 percent.

Android wins?!?!!? Who gives a fu*k? This article is about a Russian OS. And I said half America don't even fu*k with Android (which got popular after iOS) so a new OS ain't got a shot.

I could care less who "wins" a phantom race......

Apparently you do because your first comment in the thread was about which percentage of people use one OS over the other

Yes, it's called a fact. You silly a*s fan boys see or hear a fact and it gets your panties in a bunch. From personal experience as well. I switched from Apple to Android about 2 years ago and I'll never go back unless iOS drastically changed but most people I know won't even consider it as they complain about what they can't do on their iPhones.

But none of that matters because all fan boys saw is I said half of America don't fu*k with Android (which is factual 47.9% to be exact) so why would they fu*k with a Russian OS. The silly part is if I would've uses Windows mobile instead people would still cape up. As I said before in a video game thread, brand loyalty is some of the dumbest sh*t ever. The only thing I'm loyal to is the brand that makes the most sense for how I want to use their products. I ain't loyal to no OS over the other. I just know Apple will probably never unlock theirs so that's a no go for me. But if they ever do I would probably switch back.

-you responded with a novel

-you somehow a*sumed that I’m a fanboy of one OS, which i never stated.

A lot of foolish childish Android v IPhone BS in this thread. No mention whatsoever of the well known (amongst the the international legal community) fact that China aides and supports dictatorships/commi Russia and N Korea. No mention of our presidents not so public relationship with Chinese government. This is all a ploy. China is playing a long term game that many of you clowns are too immature to simply see.
