Huawei seeks trademark for Hongmeng OS, its competitor to Google's Android

Huawei's New Operating System Is Insanely Fast Versus Android

Huawei was placed on the US Entity List last month, prohibiting companies like Google and Microsoft from conducting business with the Chinese manufacturer.

For better (Huawei reconciling with Google or launching its own, successful operating system) or worse (Huawei stops producing smartphones) the future of the company will be a lot more certain in September.

US State Department director for global communications policy Jonathan Fritz said that only time would show if Huawei could diversify. Since then, the company has been racing to figure out how to deal with the US-led opposition which threatens to cut it off from parts suppliers to, arguably worst of all, Google - which means existing Huawei smartphones couldn't get Android updates or security fixes, and new Huawei smartphones would not have access to Android or the Google Play Store at all. China Daily also said Huawei is shipping 1 million test devices.

Huawei is getting closer, it seems, to the day when it will begin relying on a Plan B mobile operating system to replace the reliance it's enjoyed up to this point on Google's Android, which the Chinese consumer electronics giant is in danger of losing access to soon thanks to U.S. sanctions. Huawei has already reportedly received trademark clearance in China. Some analysts, however, believe the new OS will be launched early next year with the debut of a new P series flagship.


Huawei is resistant to this USA assault however, with founder Ren Zhengfei stating that the company was prepared to take on the United States and would not be too adversely affected by the trade ban.

According to the MyIPO database, the HongMeng trademark was filed on 24 May 2019 under Class 9 and 4 which pretty much covers all the bases, as far as an operating system goes. The agency has sought additional details from the company about its mobile operating system.

Once Huawei's OS formally hits the street, there will effectively be two kinds of Android operating system: the genuine version and a Huawei version which will be compatible to all Android apps.

Pang denied recent media reports that Huawei was cancelling the roll out of its next new laptop and said it will still launch at a later date.
