According to the folks over at 9to5Google...

Huawei Is Toying With The Idea Of Using Sailfish Os Instead Of Its Own Os

As a result of its US trade ban, Huawei got its Android revoked and thus it won't be able to use Google Play Services (the Google Play Store included) on phones that haven't been already certified. This means that the company needs to look elsewhere for its software. Initial rumors pointed at Huawei's in-house Ark OS and it's supposed to go out sometime in October but sources familiar with the matter state that the Chinese tech giant is considering another alternative as well - Sailfish OS. Well, not exactly pure Sailfish but instead a fork called Aurora OS, which is still...

The OnePlus 7 Pro’s 90Hz Display Isn’t Always Displaying At 90Hz
