Huawei says its place on the Entity List doesn't impact the Mate X's ability to use Google's Android operating system, since the phone was announced well before the USA government took its latest action against the company.

Andrew Williamson, vice president of Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's public affairs and communications, said in an interview that the company will "presumably" trademark Hongmeng. It suggests that the Chinese firm may soon launch the 5G enabled Mate X foldable phone in China.

A bigger issue to many however is whether the device would be running Google's Android.

There is speculation that Huawei may launch the HongMeng operating system later this year with the launch of a new Mate series smartphone, the business flagship for the fall shopping season.

Although Google said existing Huawei phones will continue to receive Android security updates to protect the devices from viruses and hacking, the Chinese firm had to act to safeguard its plans for future product launches in global markets.

Huawei has applied to trademark its Hongmeng OS in various countries, Reuters reported on Thursday, in a sign it may be deploying a back-up plan in key markets.

In fact, one such trademark application was filed with the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO).
