The last week has been bad for Huawei who is fighting for its survival after all the major tech giants blocked the company. Shortly after the ban, Huawei revealed that it had anticipated this day would come and was preparing for it. The company also revealed that they are working on their home grown OS to compete with Android.

Not only that, but the company has also filed for a trademark with China’s National Intellectual Property Administration. The website of the trademark office shows that an application was submitted August 24, 2018, and the trademark is valid until May 13, 2029.

A couple of days back, Huawei confirmed that they are aiming for a fall release of their own OS which should work on both smartphones and laptops. At this moment, the US government has lifted the ban temporarily allowing Huawei to put their affairs in order and prepare to quit the market.

The operating system will likely run Android apps, meaning another company besides Google’s Chromebooks will soon be trying to bring Android apps to the desktop.
