The People’s Republic Of China, which is the wary of operating systems from the Western world, has recently built a brand new smart phone Operating System that it believes is going to be more secure than the likes of the Android and even the iOS platform.

While China has claimed it as own-made OS, the Operating System looks like it is based on Android.

The China Operating System, or shortly known as COS, was unveiled last week by the famous Chinese Academy of Sciences and also, the Shanghai-based Liantong Network Communications Technology Ltd., the New York Times has reported. The COS is specially "designed for use on many of the devices including the smart phones and for the personal computers" and it was also called "a strategic product for the national security," the Times have said.

The US surveillance and the end of support for the Windows XP have reportedly played a vital role in the system's creation. The Liantong Deputy GM, Mr. Chen Feili, has said that the ultimate goal is to make the COS China's main operating system running on various devices.

While Windows OS is still the predominant desktop Operating System in China, the Android commands more than about 90 percent of China's smart phone market, with the iOS taking most of the rest places.
