New Huawei smartphones will not come with Facebook, Instagram or WhatsApp

Huawei developing its own Android alternative called Oak OS

The respective apps can be still be downloaded from Play Store or you can try your luck with an APK. The email which was shared to XDA Developers entails that Huawei's app store has a total of 270 million monthly active users.

The company also invites the developers to join their developer community for free and stated that there's 560,000 developers in their portal. AppGallery is to Huawei what Google Play is to Google. Huawei has previously said it would be able to develop its own operating system "very quickly". Of course this also suggests that the new HongMeng OS from Huawei is indeed an AOSP/Android fork that will be compatible with all Android apps. Though Huawei is part of the Tizen Association along with Samsung, it appears that Samsung's exclusive efforts with the OS will remain that way.

The Facebook prohibition by disparity petitions to any Huawei phone that has not yet exited the factory as per the person intimate with the matter. However, the strongest effect has been on Huawei which is the leading telecom provider in China and one of the leading smartphones providers.

As for OAK OS, the new operating system will be effective for smartphone users outside of China.

To incentivize developers, Huawei is promoting the fact that it has shipped over 350 million phones over the a year ago, all with direct access to AppGallery.

The Commerce Department last month effectively barred USA companies from selling their technology to Huawei and other Chinese firms without government approval.

Huawei has done well for itself globally, simply by staying within China.

Huawei is the second biggest smartphone brand in the world. Some employees are working around the clock with little rest in sight.

Because Huawei phones are already banned in the U.S., understanding how Google is making that case that a forked version of Android being sold elsewhere in the world is a serious threat to United States national security might seem like a bit of a jump. While the "Ark OS" core is described by inside sources in glowing terms, as a "light microkernel that can react quickly to adjustments and batches", it remains unclear how close Huawei is to cracking the Android compatibility code.

Panutat Tejasen, founder of Chiang Mai Maker Club and a mobile app developer, said the trade war will lead to more choices in OSs, with Apple's iOS, Google's Android and Huawei's Hongmeng or Ark OS giving mobile developers a path into the Chinese market. And, as with Samsung taking its Android-powered Galaxy smartwatches to Tizen some years ago, the last thing Google wants is its OEMs launching a non-Google OS.

The moment of truth is approaching fast whether it is worth buying a Huawei or Honor smartphone or tablet after August 19.
