It’s rumoured that Kirin is the name of Huawei’s new operating system
The latest tech rumour is centred on Chinese telecommunications company, Huawei, which has recently been pegged as a potential partner with Google for development of the new Google Nexus phone. According to reporting by Digital Trends, Huawei has actually been developing its own mobile operating system for a few years now, and so we could expect to see it rolled out in the future. The operating system is called Kirin, and will be a completely new platform developed specifically for Huawei’s own devices.
This should prove interesting, given the new operating system would essentially be a competitor to Google’s Android. However, Huawei is still trying to break into the Western market, so perhaps its operating system will initially be targetted at local consumers. This remains to be seen.
