Chinese technology giant Huawei filed a lawsuit against the USA government last week as a "last resort" to get a federal ban on the use of its products lifted. In an interview with a German publication Die Welt, Huawei Consumer Group Business CEO Richard Yu confirmed that the company has readied a proprietary operating system owing to the tensions between the firm and the USA government.

For the time being, however, Huawei doesn't seem to be in a position that would lead to a ban similar to ZTE's, as the company keeps denying all spying accusations and calls for governments to provide evidence that it's working for Beijing.

In any way, we may see Huawei fighting its way into the market with the new OS.
