Huawei's founder and CEO has said his company's Android alternative is 'likely' faster - but that it needs its own app store.

Ren Zhengfei spoke to French publication Le Point about the HongMeng OS operating system, which is supposedly being developed to reduce Huawei's dependence on Android amid increasing concern from Western countries about Huawei's alleged connection to the Chinese government.
