On paper, the reason for installing Aurora on the tablets is for carrying out Russia’s population consensus in 2020. A Huawei spokesperson confirmed that the company is currently holding talks with the Russian Ministry of Communications. Two sources at Reuters specified, “Huawei is interested in the project. It showed samples of tablets that could be used,” and, “This is a pilot project. We see it as the first stage of launching the Russian OS on Huawei devices.”
Aurora is a Russia-specific version of Sailfish OS.
Sailfish is real. Localization in the Russian language is real.
But, I guess what I’m saying if Russian forums, which have posts not even numbering in the dozens, talk about an OS that nobody can download, not even in Russia – it’s hardly got a big swell of support.
Sure, it makes for political drama.
