Although most users who buy a cell phone never run root access or change ROMs, there are reasons why companies release the source code of their devices, something they are not required to do.
Huawei is a company that focuses on growing in different markets and is no longer satisfied to be large, looking to be the largest in a few years.
For this he knows that he has to use all the tools at his disposal and the most enthusiastic about mobile technology is one of them. Although there are not many users compared to the rest of the buyers, they are passionate people who are able to create trends and recommend brands and devices in their environment.
Source code of Huawei Mate 10 and Honor 7X
Taking care of the community is one of the reasons why Huawei has released the Kernel or source code of two of its latest mobile phones. On the one hand, we have the Huawei Mate 10, a terminal that stands out above all for its artificial intelligence.
The source code for an Honor, 7X, has also been released and will start selling in Europe in a few days.
