Harmony? Huawei files trademark application for its in-house operating system

Huawei Harmony Could Be the Highly-Anticipated Chinese Android Rival

Should the worst happen, Huawei would still have access to Android via the freely available Android Open-Source Project platform but with that, Huawei would not have access to critical Android services such as the Google Play Store, Gmail, Google Maps and YouTube. The company's leaders have been saying publicly they'd prefer to stick with Android and not be forced to fall back on a new OS of their own making.

Zhengfei further claimed that HongMeng has a processing delay of fewer than 5 milliseconds and is going to be faster than Android or even macOS. For those who are unaware of the EMUI 10, it is a custom mobile operating system that is based on Android that Huawei uses on most Huawei and Honor-branded smartphone devices.

At the same time, Huawei executive Liang Hua said, "The Hongmeng OS is primarily developed for IoT devices that will reduce latency..."

"We haven't decided yet if the Hongmeng OS can be developed as a smartphone operating system in the future".

However, despite the Chinese tech giant registering the name Hongmeng trademarks worldwide, there's been very little else actually said about it.

Retooling HongMeng OS for IoT to support its devices could be a solution to strengthen its ecosystem.

However, HongMeng is likely to be just a codename or a moniker that Huawei would use for Chinese models, while Harmony could be the global name for the operating system.

Don't worry, we're as confused as you are on what Huawei is doing. We've heard these comments before - including from Huawei Australia managing director Larking Huang - but it seems that despite Huawei's slowly improving outlook, Hongmeng remains alive and well.

It is wise of Huawei to continue to pursue alternatives to its dependence on American companies for components, technology and operating systems.
