Huawei might also have to look for hardware partners as it uses Intel processors in its Windows laptops.

Even though this is now the official confirmation, this is not the first time we're hearing reports of Huawei's proprietary operating system. In an interview with German agency Die Welt, Yu divulged that Huawei has developed in-house operating systems.

This was reportedly seen as a way to prepare for "worst case scenarios".

The comments come as Huawei and its execs face a number of legal battles in the US amid the US-China trade war and US pressure on European allies not to use Huawei's 5G technology in networks. Huawei is very popular outside of the USA, but the company has virtually no marketshare inside the US due to the government urging carriers not to offer its devices over fears of spying. Last year, an export ban was imposed on ZTE since it was found guilty of violating sanctions on Iran. Huawei makes its own SoC - the Huawei Kirin, and so is not much dependent on Qualcomm's 'Snapdragon SoC, but same cannot be said of the company's patronage of Google's products and services particularly Google Android OS. Many users will have their own favourite apps within the Android ecosystem, which developers say may be the issue in convincing them to jump onto a new platform.

Since Monday, the US has revoked 340 visas, 107 of which were for Venezuelan diplomats and their families, according to Palladino. Pompeo tweeted earlier this week that the diplomats would be withdrawn because they had become a "constraint" on USA policy.

Trade secret thefts, violations of economic sanctions, unethical business dealings with Iran through unofficial subsidiary are some of the charges that have been applied by the US governments against Huawei.

Huawei began building the OS in 2012, after seeing the writing on the wall when the United States banned Chinese telecom equipment maker ZTE from using American products and services.

The world's second-largest handset player by market share now uses the Android OS for its handsets and Microsoft's Windows for its laptops and tablets.
