Huawei Could Soon Launch Gmail Alternative, Petal Mail


Huawei could soon be launching its Gmail alternative, Petal mail. The giant tech manufacturer announced in August, 2020 that it was building its own HarmonyOS into their smartphones beginning 2021.

The Chinese company announced that it would also offer the OS to other manufacturers as an alternative to Android

Last year, Huawei was at the centre of tensions between the US and China. This resulted in the US  imposing sanctions against the Chinese company. The UK also cut its 5G links with the telecom infrastructure firm. Huawei can therefore no longer offer Android or Google on its latest devices without a license.

Huawei has also not confirmed a date for a launch, but with the developments, it could be any time soon.
