Huawei's Hongmeng OS expected to be released in October

Huawei's Hongmeng OS expected to be released in October

Previous reports indicated that Huawei has prepared its own operating system in case it loses access to Android.

"Presumably we'll be trying to put trademarks", he added.

The source of the report wasn't mentioned and so, this news could be regarded as being a part of the ongoing PR drive to get the United States government to capitulate on its ban of the company from using USA technology.

Williamson also claimed that he believes "it is already being rolled out over a million devices", and Reuters has reported that Huawei has filed "Hongmeng" trademarks in the European Union as well as multiple countries, including Canada, South Korea, New Zealand, Cambodia, and Peru.

To ensure long-term security, and given the Trump administration's continuing rhetoric against China and its tech companies, Huawei has no option but to pursue its own OS.

Moreover, the newspaper also claimed that the new operating system is 60% faster than Android, which falls in line with Huawei's head of smartphone business Richard Yu, who also claimed the same. However, there are speculations that the new OS will drop with the Mate 30 in the last quarter of the year.

Peru has some 5.5 million Huawei phone users.

Shahid Kapoor: Unfortunately, I couldn’t make time to do Rang De Basanti
It was at one such promotions that the actor went on to (hesitantly) admit that he is better at sexting his wife Mira Rajput . When Neha Dhupia asked Shahid Kapoor did Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor Khan invited him to attend their marriage.

Now, two reports show how Huawei is busily preparing the Android replacement operating system, which it is reportedly calling Hongmeng. Some industry observers have warned that the Huawei system could have many more bugs than the Google offering, putting the devices at greater risk of getting hacked. However, the world's second-largest maker of smartphones has not yet revealed details about its OS.

Do Androids dream of Hongmeng?

Andrew Williamson, vice-president of Huawei's public affairs and communications, said Hongmeng was moving forward.

For the initial stages, Huawei is said to focus mainly on the budget smartphone segment with its own OS.

On top of all this, the Chinese communications giant has also filed an official complaint with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regarding the banning of its network technologies on the grounds of national security.

Huawei, for sure, will face a challenge to build an ecosystem once it launches its OS, as getting all global app developers on board to tweak their products for the new Chinese platform won't be too easy.
