Who would have thought that Huawei is going to end up using a Russian OS on its devices or did you? Well, it’s real. However, Huawei is not replacing Android OS with a Russian OS.
The Chinese tech giant is reportedly in talks with the Russian government about the prospects of installing Aurora OS, the official Russian operating system, on 360,000 Huawei tablets for use during Russia’s population census exercise next year.
Yes; that’s it. Aurora OS won’t be replacing Android OS on Huawei smartphones or anything of the sort.
According to report, Russia’s state telecommunications operator, Rostelecom, is the sole contractor for buying tablets to hold the October 2020 Russian population census. Aurora is said to be Russia’s only OS and is an adaptation of Jolla’s Sailfish OS. Rostelecom statement reads;
“Various options for collaboration with Huawei are currently under consideration with the participation of the Ministry of Communications…We don’t disclose details yet, there is an agreement on confidentiality,”
