In the trade war between US and China, Huawei is one of the big companies who is affected by US trade ban. US authority banned US companies to conduct any business with Huawei and in the effect of that ban Google also stopped all business with Huawei. It affected Huawei so much even Huawei can no longer use Android OS updates to their mobile phone. But after this Huawei has developed their contingency plan in place. They are going to release their own mobile operating system “Hongmeng”.
Huawei wants to remove their dependencies from Android operating system and now they will start using their own mobile OS Hongmeng. The company already filled trademark application to The Peru National Institute of Free Competition and Protection of Intellectual Property authority to use within nine countries and Europe. It’s also named as Ark OS in that continent. In this year we already heard that Huawei is working to develop their new mobile operating system. And they also told that this will be released after a while. But now due to the ban by US authority they expedited their development flow and is now ready to release. It’s also a major blow back for Android because Huawei was one of the largest mobile manufacturer in the world.
Several reports said that Huawei is going to release this new mobile OS Hongmeng in their next mobile shipment. Also some reports are saying they already shipped 1 million handset with this operation system. Experts are suspecting that if they release their new OS with rush time frame then due to proper security testing millions of their user can be at security risk. We haven’t heard further details about this yet.
