Huawei HongMengOS is "likely" faster than Android - report
« on: July 08, 2019, 04:55:47 AM »


Huawei's HongMengOS is the company's home-grown replacement for the Android operating system. At this point, it isn't clear whether Google will resume doing business with the manufacturer even though President Donald Trump said a week ago that U.S. firms could start selling to Huawei. The company remains on the U.S. Commerce Department's Entity List and is still considered "blacklisted."


Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei recently spoke with French magazine LePoint (via WCCF Tech) and said that the company plans on reducing its dependency on Android. At the same time, the executive made it clear that Huawei's operating system is more than just a replacement for Android and can be used for IoT and self-driving vehicles. While a previous report claimed that HongMeng is 60% faster than Android, Ren noted that the operating system's processing delay is less than 5 milliseconds. He says that it is "likely" to be faster than not only Android but iOS as well.

Ren says that Huawei will be working on building a new app storefront to replace the Google Play Store, and he admits that this is an area where HongMeng and Huawei will struggle. The company's founder notes how dedicated app developers are to both the iOS and Android platforms. Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei Technologies Consumer Business Group, says that HongMeng will debut this fall in China with other markets expected to see it early next year. Assuming that Google does not rebuild ties with Huawei, HongMengOS could launch with the release of the Huawei Mate 30 line later this year.
Huawei admits that it won't surpass Samsung next year to become the top global smartphone manufacturer

As for the foldable Huawei Mate X, the device was unveiled back in February well before the company was banned from its U.S. supply chain. That means that the Mate X will launch with Android pre-installed when it is released in September. Speaking of which, last month Huawei posted a list of phones that will be updated to Android Q. That list included all three phones that make up the P30 range and the Mate 20 Pro. Also on the list is the Mate 20 X (both 4G and 5G variants) and the recently released Honor 20.
