Huawei is ditching Android app support with ‘HarmonyOS Next’

It’s definitely clear that Huawei is pulling the plug on Android apps, but it’s still rather hard to believe that the company is throwing away Android (AOSP) entirely. For that, we’ll just have to wait and see, as more digging can be done when “Next” hits the scene next year.

The Chinese market is big enough to sustain its own application ecosystem, and many western services are banned in China anyway, so the Play Store is of lesser value there. It makes sense for Huawei to not waste time and resources on maintaining Android application compatibility.
