It’s no secret that Huawei is building an in-house operating system that could see it cutting its reliance on Google’s Android OS. The Chinese firm has already scheduled its developer conference (HDC 2019) for 9 and 11 August in Dongguan, China. While the conference will cover various products and services, a major highlight of the event might be the unveiling of its homegrown Hongmeng OS.

And while we all know the Hongmeng OS has a lot of storm to weather, the company’s CEO and founder, Ren Zhengfei in a recent interview expressed confidence that the OS would have major issues with the popular OS. Specifically, the CEO boasted that the Hongmeng OS will be faster than Google’s Android and Apple’s macOS and will have a broader application as well. He puts the processing delay at just s few milliseconds. While Android OS majorly finds it use only on smartphones and tablets, Huawei CEO revealed that the OS could be put to use on routers, network switches, tablets, computers as well as on data centers.
Furthermore, the CEO added that OS, when released, would serve as a perfect software platform for the Internet of Things (IoT) like smart home devices, and autonomous vehicles.
Huawei has already been given the nod to buy from U.S suppliers, however, the Chinese tech giant is still pushing on with the Hongmeng’s development, and could become a reality soon.
