By Li Tao

Huawei Technologies, the Chinese smartphone giant facing a US ban that may prevent it from installing Google services on handsets sold in overseas markets, plans to launch its own operating system compatible with Google’s Android, according to Huawei’s mobile business chief executive Richard Yu Chengdong.

Huawei’s self-developed OS will be able to support a range of products and systems within its ecosystem, including smartphones, computers, tablets, TVs, automobiles and smart wear, which will also be compatible with all Android applications and existing web applications, Yu was quoted as saying in a Securities Times report published on Tuesday.
