Juho Sarvikas (CPO, HMD Global) recently had an Interview with Kompas.com a well known national news paper from Indonesia. In this interview, they discussed the current situation of Huawei’s US ban from using Google’s Android & how this Chinese manufacturer is preparing to introduce it’s own smartphone OS.

“Not on a smartphone. There is no reason to make an OS”
Further he said :
“We think we have the opportunity to differentiate the market with Google’s default features”
