Huawei's unwanted Android replacement is closer
« on: May 29, 2019, 06:22:11 AM »


It's not clear if TechRadar misunderstood Alaa Elshimy's statements or the senior Huawei executive misspoke, but apparently, the company's Android OS substitute is actually far from ready for primetime. Instead of launching in June around the world, the platform is scheduled for a domestic debut in "late 2019", most likely to be followed by an international expansion at some point next year. Original story follows.

Things may look bleak from the outside for the world's second-largest smartphone vendor, but it's becoming clearer and clearer that Huawei was in fact internally prepared for the recent exodus of US partners and parts suppliers. We're not just talking 90-day or 12-month prepared either, as a company official reportedly made a surprising revelation in an unusually detailed discussion with the folks over at TechRadar.


Apparently, that homebrewed mobile operating system Huawei could use to replace Android on future products if the White House maintains its ban and Google is forced to pull its support is pretty much ready for primetime already, eyeing a global rollout as early as next month.
Unwanted Plan B in action

Internally known as HongMeng, which is apparently a metaphor for the "primordial world, primeval chaos" in Chinese creation myths, the Android-replacing software platform is rumored to go official under the name "Ark OS", which could bear an interesting biblical implication of its own. While Alaa Elshimy, Managing Director and Vice President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group Middle East, has nothing to disclose on that front, his statements offer an unprecedented look behind the development curtain of this largely mysterious OS.
