Despite talking about it, Huawei's Hongmeng OS will still not be able to replace Android anytime soon. The company admitted.
Huawei has reportedly been working to acquire his own mobile platform, Hongmeng OS or Ark OS, trademarked in a number of countries after US President Donald Trump has banned the Chinese company on US shores. Hongmeng OS, Huawei's CEO Ren Zhengfei performed, is faster than both Google Android and Apple's MacOS, and is capable of running many devices that are not limited to smartphones.
After a while, President Trump defended his attitude to Huawei and allowed American technology companies to sell widely available technologies to the Chinese company. While the Chinese tech giant said it recognizes the US President's decision, it cannot comment on whether it continues with the Hongmeng OS as reported, or returns to install Android on its devices.
Now weeks after President Trump's decision, Huawei has also come to a decision: It's going to stick to Android.
Android there is
Last month, some sources that are knowledgeable about the matter said: "Huawei is not fully prepared to launch the OS" as the trading ban came suddenly. Although the company spent years observing Android and iOS to work on the Hongmeng OS, it's still not ready for release on mobile phones. Why is it?
Some Huawei officials answer. First, according to Huawei's senior vice president Catherine Chen, Hongmeng OS was designed primarily for "industrial use," reported Android police. This means that the operating system contains less code than would normally be required for a mobile device to function properly.
Next, according to a TechNode report last week, one of Huawei's rotating chairman, Liang Hua, said the company "hasn" t decided even if the Hongmeng OS can be developed as a smartphone operating system in the future. "Liang said Hongmeng OS is" primarily developed for IoT devices that will reduce latency ", not as a smartphone OS. Liang added that Android is still the Chinese company's" first choice. "
Finally, also said China's Xinhua news agency that it sees Huawei's holding on to Android in the near future, these reports show a complete departure from previous reports that the Hongmeng OS will be a complete replacement for Android, and will beat smartphones, tablets, computers, televisions and cars.
