Huawei Brings Full Windows 10 To Their Android Flagships Via Cloud PC



Chinese phone manufacturer Huawei has come up with a solution that will enable Windows 10 operating system to run on Android devices ... ermm their own Android devices.

According to Huawei which made the announcement at CES Asia 2018, its new Cloud PC service offers access to a virtualized Windows 10 PC on Huawei's Android device. The service can also give the user a full-scale desktop experience when connected to an external display via USB-C.

To make use of the service, users simply need to download the Cloud PC app which is based Huawei's enterprise-focused FusionCloud platform and the firm's own Huawei's Desktop Protocol (HDP), which allows the Windows 10 desktop to access the smartphone's file system directly. For example, a user can take a picture with their smartphone and then open up the picture in Photoshop on the virtual Windows 10 machine.


Huawei has, however, stated that the service will be available on Huawei P20, Huwaei Mate 10, Huawei Mate RS and the Huawei MediaPad M5 tablet which comes as a disappointment to those who are not on Huawei's flagship. Those with the device capable of using the service just need to install an app and get going without the need of any additional hardware.

Since its servers are located in China, Huawei will launch in China only ... at least for now, due to latency issues. Huawei, however, hopes to bring the service to Europe if it proves to be popular.

There are indications that Huawei might not bring the Cloud PC service to the US, following the America government row with China.

Recent rumour suggests that Huawei is developing an alternative to Windows 10 for tablets and PC, and also a smartphone OS incase things goes out of hand between the US and China.

"We are developing our own OS out of strategic consideration, because we won't be doomed if they suddenly cut our food, don't allow us to use Android or Windows 8," Ren Zhengfei, Huawei founder was quoted.

The pricing hasn't been announced yet.
