President Donald Trump’s administration last month put Huawei on a blacklist that barred it from doing business with U.S. tech companies such as Alphabet, whose Android OS is used in Huawei’s phones.

Andrew Williamson, vice president of Huawei’s public affairs and communications, has confirmed Huawei’s plans to potentially roll out the alternate operating system.

Huawei is in the process of potentially launching a replacement. It’s not something Huawei wants. We’re very happy of being part of the Android family, but Hongmeng is being tested, mostly in China

According to data from the U.N World Intellectual Property Organisation, Huawei has applied to trademark its mobile OS in at least 9 countries and Europe. The countries include Cambodia, Canada, South Korea, New Zealand and Peru.

The applications state Huawei’s intentions to use the mobile OS for devices such as phones, portable computers and car TVs.

Williamson also confirmed that Huawei is filing for trademarks around the world in order to protect the name and use of its operating system, in addition to talking about financial forecasts.
