Huawei is known to be developing HongMeng as an Android operating system. Not only Huawei, other smartphone vendors from China such as Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo also tried this operating system.
Quoting the Global Times, Huawei is now intensively testing HongMeng which is reportedly going to be released this year. In the trial, Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo also sent an internal team to take part in testing the new operating system.
The result, HongMeng claimed to be able to boost the performance of smartphones 60 percent faster than if using the Android operating system.
Unfortunately, both Tencent and Xiaomi declined to comment on the report.
Huawei itself accelerated the making of this operating system after the US Government entered Huawei’s name into a trade blacklist called the ‘entity list’.
Companies that are included in the list are not allowed to buy components in the form of software and hardware to companies from the US, without permission from the US Government.
So, Huawei has the potential to lose the Android operating system license which is actually owned by Google, which is a US company.
Some analysts revealed that the HongMeng operating system is expected to begin to be embedded in the upcoming Huawei P40 device.
