Google, as you already know, has cut ties with Huawei due to the placement of the latter on the Commerce Department's Entity List. Being on the list prevents Huawei from obtaining parts and software from its U.S. supply chain. Losing its Google Play services license means that the Chinese phone manufacturer can no longer install the Google version of Android, including Google's core apps and the Play Store, on its new phones.

Even though Huawei reportedly has sent out one million devices with its own Hongmeng OS Android replacement installed in order to gather feedback from users, the company could still be considering another operating system. A Russian publication called The Bell reports (via XDA) that Huawei is looking at Aurora, an operating system built on the open source Sailfish platform.

Two unnamed sources cited in the article claim that Huawei Deputy Chairman Guo Ping spoke with the Russian Minister for Digital Development and Communications, Konstantin Noskov, about using Aurora. The latter happens to have been developed by a company jointly owned by Russian wireless provider Rostelecom and Russian businessman Grigory Berezkin. A third source claims that Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping both spoke about this very matter. And yet another source, one who works for the Chinese government, says that "China is already testing devices with Aurora installed on them." Also being discussed is the possibility that Huawei could have some of its phones produced in Russia along with chips and software.
