This says the head of the company in a new interview
Chinese Huawei has begun to prepare for more independence in the near future. The new strategy is a direct result of the company losing, or soon losing, access to many key partners on both the software and hardware side. For example, Google will no longer allow Huawei to use either Android or operating systems, or Google apps like Gmail or Maps on mobile.
In response, Huawei has accelerated the development of its own operating system, which they registered with the HongMeng brand in June. And not only should this be for mobile phones - but also tablets, PCs, and other types of devices.
More than just a mobile OS
Huawei's manager, Ren Zhengfei, recently said in an interview with the French magazine Le Point that HongMeng will be more than just an alternative to Android. They have plans for the new OS to be a link between many types of devices, including self-driving cars.
Zhengfei also emphasized that HongMeng should be well-optimized for performance and that the operating system will have a process delay of less than five milliseconds - which, according to him, will make it "most likely" faster than Android or iOS.
The distribution will be the main challenge
At the same time, the Huawei boss admitted that his company will face a major challenge in terms of the deployment and creation of the new operating system. Especially on the app market, which is completely dominated by Google and Apple. As part of the strategy ahead, Huawei will develop its own app store so developers can easily create and distribute apps and games to the platform.
It is expected that HongMeng will be released first in China this fall and that it will then be launched for all Huawei mobiles and units in the rest of the world early next year.
