Compact Chinese HP Leaves Android, What’s Google’s Fate? Tech – 11 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Smartphone manufacturers from China are slowly starting to abandon Android.

Like Xiaomi and Huawei which are currently developing their own operating systems. Both seek to integrate various product portfolios, from cellphones to smart home appliances, under one operating system.

Xiaomi recently launched HyperOS which replaces MiUI. The operating system still depends on Google’s Android.


However, HyperOS can be said to be more independent. This operating system is a form of ‘fusion’ of Android and Xiaomi’s Internet of Things (IoT) platform called Vela.

With HyperOS, users can enjoy a smoother and more unified experience when using smartphones, smartwatches and smart TVs. This initiative aims to simplify users’ lives when trying out various Xiaomi products.

HyperOS so far has not ‘disbanded’ Android, but still maintains a symbiotic relationship, quoted from GizmochinaWednesday (1/11/2023).

However, it is possible that in the future Xiaomi will be more ambitious to become independent, following Huawei’s steps.

Moreover, the heated geopolitical relations between China and the US have had a big impact on the technology industry. The Joe Biden administration recently created a complete blocking rule for US chip access to China.

Huawei’s HarmonyOS is truly independent and free from the Google ecosystem, after Huawei was subjected to harsh sanctions by the United States (US).

Despite experiencing a steep road to promote HarmonyOS without Android support, Huawei recovered after releasing the Mate 60 Pro which sold well on the market. Currently, more than 700 million devices are running HarmonyOS.

It’s not easy to defeat Android’s dominance. Currently, Android still dominates the mobile operating system market share at 70%. In fact, Apple’s iOS still takes up a very small portion.

Xiaomi is slowly showing off with HyperOS, while still optimizing Android support. Meanwhile, Huawei has a clear focus on expanding HarmonyOS adoption.
