Despite the problems associated with the inability to work with Google, Huawei continues to bend its line, developing its own AppGallery application store and the HarmonyOS operating system, while not forgetting to release full-fledged flagships. But there are times when its representatives are “a little” odd – for example, the head of Huawei said that the company will need “no more” 300 years to catch up with Google and Apple.
Huawei could take 300 years to overcome Android and iOS
“Sales of devices on Android and Apple operating systems in the world are huge, and Huawei is late. It’s hard for consumers to accept other operating systems. Thus, the Huawei OS can take a long time to surpass Android and Apple, but no more than 300 years, ” said the CEO of the company Ren Zhengfei in an interview with Dragon Magazine.
These statements are frustrating for the employees and fans of the giant company, and it is more strange that it comes from the founder of the company.
According to Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei consumer business. HMS (Huawei mobile services) currently is in more than 170 countries and regions. With more than 400 million monthly active users and more than 1.3 million developers and partners. It is already second only to Google Android and Apple iOS, ranking the top three globally.
At present, Google Play has more than 2.1 million apps, while Huawei AppGalery currently has only 55,000 apps. In the short term, GMS’s leading position is undoubtedly difficult to shake, let alone replace Android with Hongmeng OS.
In addition, because overseas users rely more on Google ’s GMS service, replacing GMS means changing user habits, which is a very difficult thing. We don’t know whether the new Huawei ecosystem will find a place in the market or not. But looking at the near future, we expect it to find some success in China. But it will be difficult to find a place in the global markets.
