I'll be avoiding Huawei phones from now on, not because of the whole spying issue, but because of their crappy quality batteries. Both my Huawei devices (phone and tablet) had swollen batteries no matter how much I took care of them.
As soon as Trump started trade war I redirected my purchases mainly to China. As soon as Huawei was hit I dropped iPhone and purchased P30 Pro. It's not about pleasure, this phone is like shoe to me but it's a clear statement.

Unlikely they can create an operating system in a few months when Windows/Linux/Android took decades to reach where they are today.
On top of that, having developers of tens of thousands of apps port their software to new Huawei OS would take one or two years at least. iOS and Android app development is costly enough
BigDisplay, 19 Jun 2019Still depends what customers expect. Me personally really want the Ark OS system. Will be nice... morei think android will still get the larger market because in android world there are lots of lots of developers all over the world and lots of most used apps and popular games are in android and those developers get money have an income from to it.

NipponFan, 19 Jun 2019Would never buy a huawei Pointless bit of information
I don't know man....
I'm already sick and tired of Android's inconsistency and weak system support despite the high level of customization, but I'm also afraid that the ArkOS might not be on par with Android in terms of app varieties and all the basics for a modern day smartphone OS.
I actually want the Windows Phone to get resurrected, but with far better app availability and compatibility. It's also more efficient, as they are better optimized than Androids commonly back in the day.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2019Do you think that there is a possibility P30 Pro to be updated from Android to Ark? I want to ... moreThere has not in my memory for a phone to be released on one operating system and upgraded to another
Second and most important the China / USA trade agreement will not be signed until Huawei. Ban is fully rescinded
Onto your point Huawei to insulate itself from this in future may only release phones using its own ARK Operating System this could have a knock on effect on that many Far East phone company).
This has a knock on effect Google revenue going to Huawei
My take is in 2016 we had 4 viable Operating Systems now down to two
Blackberry 10/ QNX the most secure whilst not dead it is only being developed for Autonomous technology driverless cars
Blackberry HMD still need monthly security patches
App developer will create an ARK version of the Android version ( Blackberry Android apps only needed a "minor tweak" so were not available in Google Play being only available via Amazon.
American companies are not in favour of the van as you can see in related article Qualcomm had spoken out in support as Huawei is a major customer, what you won't find are Network telecommunications expert speaking this is how Huawei will steal information from equipment installed in USA, UK etc as there is non.
Trump simply does not know how to negotiate trade deals, a $billion personal loss from inheritance if $400 million
ARK may be the unintended consequence of this, which atm I don't know but has to be more secure than Android, Android was at one stage 'smaller' than Windows Phone OS
This is the sequence Huawei restored fully USA / China trade deal. No ifs no buts.
The art of the deal you see an item on say Ebay, you make an absurd offer it is rejected, you then kidnap the seller child in order to get the item at the price you want.....
Two Operating Systems one system no memory expansion no media sharing app,
The other no security the latest all do under developed it was practically raw with phone company almost rewriting it
G20 26-28/06/2019 I cannot wait for the reasons Trump decide to lift the ban
You have my permission to laugh... wait til then
Huawei can not be prevented to push out updates for p30 on a website with instructions to the Euro/USA user to install it manually.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2019Do you think that there is a possibility P30 Pro to be updated from Android to Ark? I want to ... moreyes, the p30 series is likely to get ark or oak os but it might take some time as consumers may not be willing to shift to an entirely new os or there may be hurdles attached
better to wait for the next p series which will run the os natively
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2019Crazy buying Huawei phone now, wait until you see if they get their android license back first... moreThe P30 seems to be a safe buy. It actually gets more updates than my Nokia 9 which is supposed to be an Android one phone.
Do you think that there is a possibility P30 Pro to be updated from Android to Ark? I want to buy this phone and I want to switch to Ark as soon as it's out.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2019Crazy buying Huawei phone now, wait until you see if they get their android license back first... moreStill depends what customers expect. Me personally really want the Ark OS system. Will be nice trying something new, Android sleeping last couple of years, minor updates, so Ark OS YES THX
But now i will wait to get tge EMUI 9,1 for my Mate 20X.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2019Crazy buying Huawei phone now, wait until you see if they get their android license back first... moreAndroid Q beta for P30 Pro already back in progress. Means that they already has license up until that android version. Will doing great for the next 2 years.
After that, their android future is uncertain, but their alternative plan seems big.
