Ever since the ban on Huawei by the US, the development of its HongMeng system has been a major topic of discussion. Huawei’s “2018 Sustainability Report” conference, contains a speech from Huawei Chairman, Liang Hua. According to Mr. Hua Huawei’s HongMeng OS is basically for the Internet of Things (IoT). Whether it will transcend into a mobile phone system is not known for now.
Liang Hua said that the HongMeng OS is for low-latency scenarios such as autonomous driving and telemedicine. Huawei’s mobile phone still regards the open source Android system and ecology as its first choice.
Earlier, Ren Zhengfei said in an interview with foreign media that the HongMeng system itself is not for mobile phones, but for the Internet of Things (IoT). According to him, it can precisely control the delay below five milliseconds, even the to sub-millisecond level. Huawei also hopes that it will continue to use Android but if the US restricts its use, it will develop its own operating system. The most important part of the operating system is to build an ecosystem. It takes two or three years to re-establish a good ecology.
Recently, there are rumors that Huawei will release the HongMeng operating system at the 2019 Developer Conference. This conference will commence on August 9. An earlier hint from Yu Chengdong suggests that this system could arrive this fall or next spring. At the time, Yu Chengdong said, “If the Android application is recompiled, the running performance will increase by more than 60% on this operating system.”
He said that the system will be compatible with mobile phones, computers, tablets, TVs, cars and smart wearable devices. In addition, it is also compatible with all Android applications and Web applications.
