Huawei's new OS is called "HongMeng"

Updated: Sep 23, 2019

After being added to the blacklist by the US government Huawei was also banned from using the Android OS in their devices. Being the worlds SECOND-BIGGEST company in the world it will become very difficult for the company to compete with many other smartphones which are running on ANDROID OS.

Huawei claims that they were anticipating that such a move would be made, and they’ve taken the necessary steps to make sure that the effects of this blow are mitigated as much as possible. One of those steps would be to develop its own smartphone operating system, which reportedly has a name now.

Huawei comes up with its FIRST EVER SELF DEVELOPED SMARTPHONE OPERATING SYSTEM "HongMeng" which will replace the ANDROID OS as it is being tested out according to three Chinese media reports.

The GLOBAL TIMES tweeted,


Google has already said that owners of Huawei phones will retain their access to the Play Store and continue being able to update their apps. The big thing that’s being written out of their future, however, are further Android OS updates from Google. To get those back, Huawei phone owners and fans will have to hope for a resolution in the US-China trade dispute, which has been the trigger for Huawei’s current blacklisting by the US government.

“Huawei has made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world. As one of Android’s key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefitted both users and the industry.
Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally.
We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally.”
