Huawei new OS is all set to debut!

By now you must have read about the recent blow receive by Huawei – the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer. As Huawei found itself with very few options to deal with the situation, it’s apparent that the best alternative for the company is to launch its own operating system the company has been working on for years now.

According to the sources of HuaweiCentral, the new OS of Huawei is all set for debut. Named as Hongmeng – the new OS from Huawei could get no better launch opportunity than now when all eyes are set on the next move of Huawei after getting banned by Google to use Android.

If you are among the few ones who have no clue about the recent debacle with Huawei, then this must surprise you – Google has suspended the license of Android for Huawei. The chinse manufacturer can no longer release new smartphones with Android OS. You can read more about Google’s decision and possible effects on Huawei’s market in our previous deep dive.

The sources have informed that Huawei was working on Hongmeng since 2012. The company has been testing the new OS on selected devices under closer door and closed environment. It’s also been told that Huawei anticipated the move last year and accelerated the development & testing process to make Hongmeng ready for market for the situation like this.

Huawei has not commented anything on the possible launch or name of the new operating system yet.

It is also not yet confirmed whether Hongmeng will be the official name of Huawei OS or it’s just the codenamed used for the development purpose.

After Google’s decision to revoke the license of Android for Huawei, the rumour mills are busy producing news about the next possible move by the company.

Even if Huawei Hongmeng is ready for launch, the biggest challenge for the company is to build an app ecosystem. It’s quite unlikely that Huawei would release hundreds of thousands of apps compatible with Hongmeng.

Huawei accounted for 19% of the worldwide smartphone market to become the second largest smartphone manufacturer, leapfrogging Apple in Q1 2019.

It would be interesting to see whether Hongmeng really exists; if it does, how well it could challenge the dominance of Android, especially in markets outside China.
