Aurora is based on SFOS according to this article. Good news, bad news?

edit: btw anyone has tested/played with Aurora(and not under NDA)? Is it sfos with just some tweaks like they had for intex, or more modified/limited???

Not really duplicate, the other post is about 'social media activism - tweet at', this is about news of aurora being considered by huawei, but whatever people decide, digging through dozen answers relating to tweeting campaign, instead of news maybe is better for some

If this is true I am actually interested in the question why Huawei is negotiating with Russia/Rostelcom/OMP instead of directly with Jolla? Has Rostelcom/OMP the right to license the Sailfish OS fork by themselves? This would be the wrong party that earns tge money and gets the reputation...

I agree with Alex, if this were true it creates a conflict with Jolla's aim to sell to other countries.

From your article [Update: We have an official confirmation about this rumor: Huawei denied the news and added: “Any information to this effect would be released through official channels”. It means the news from Global Times isn’t true.]

Looks like they are considering SFOS (Aurora) at least

Good. Last thing we need SFOS on is 6" monsters.

@ApB I have it on 6" Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus and it is awesome, much better than Android.
