Huawei’s upcoming operating system HongMeng OS has been rumored to be replacing Google Android OS. Huawei announced the HongMeng OS during the conflict between the US government and the Chinese company per se.
On Thursday, the company confirmed that Hongmeng operating system is not for smartphones; instead, the company will continue using Google Android OS for its smartphones. The HongMeng OS was widely reported as a potential alternative as it was found to be 60 percent faster than Android mobile OS.
Catherine Chen, Senior Vice President and a Board Member of Huawei said trademarked Hongmeng operating system would be mostly used for industrial use and the system has been in development long back without the intention to use it for smartphones.
She also added Hongmeng contains much fewer codes than the usual smartphone codes that contain dozen million lines of codes and hence low latency compared with a smartphone operating system.
A few days ago, Huawei registered the Harmony OS brand with the European Union’s Intellectual Property Office, hence opening a whole new room for rumors regarding HongMeng. Long-time back, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei, said that HongMeng would be introduced between autumn 2019 and spring 2020. Now let’s wait for the official announcement.
