The organization, which is also the world’s largest telecommunications equipment maker, could ditch Google’s Android platform amid reports that it’s under evaluation by the united states for breaching sanctions against Iran, the South China Morning Post reported on Sunday.

According to media accounts, the US House Intelligence Committee discovered after a yearlong investigation the Chinese companies, Huawei Technologies and ZTE Inc, were a “national security threat due to their efforts to extract sensitive data from American businesses and their loyalties to the Chinese authorities”.
“The strategy to construct a proprietary OS was launched by Huawei’s creator, Ren Zhengfei, and the firm hasn’t given it up since it’s regarded as a strategic investment to get ready to ‘worst-case scenarios’,” the report added.
Huawei’s choice to Android hasn’t yet been published as it’s not “as good” as Android as well as the system doesn’t have many third party programs developed to it.
The business is presently under investigation. If the US Department of Justice finds it guilty of violating sanctions, it might impose criminal penalties on the smartphone manufacturer.
