Being on the US government trade blacklist has created uncertainty over Google’s essential Android apps on Huawei products. In response, the company has been working on the alternative to Google Media Services (GMS), which customers are used to.
Huawei has unveiled two new smart televisions, the first products to use HarmonyOS, the company's own operating system. The televisions will be available from August 15 in China and marks the first use of HarmonyOS, chief executive George Zhao said, adding that it will be marketed by its mid-range brand, Honor.
Honor has confirmed that the Honor 20 and possibly other phones in the series will launch on May 21 in London. This London launch event marks the first time the brand has launched a phone in Europe, without first holding a launch event in China.
