Huawei published yesterday (02) on its official website the open-source compiler “Ark Compiler”, enabling a broader experience of using this feature developed by the Chinese giant to be a complementary tool of the Android operating system.
The Ark Compiler was announced by technology giant in April of that year, the same day it launched the top-of-the-line P30 in the home country of its maker, China. According to Huawei, the purpose of this new feature is to give users a successor to ART (Android Runtime) that further enhances the experience of using Android.
Compared to its predecessor, it is possible to have a 24% increase in overall system fluidity as well as a much shorter response time, reduced to 44%, making commands run quickly. For third-party applications, it is surprisingly effective, since execution is faster than 60%.
For now, users will not have access to Ark within AOSP, making it necessary to find other ways to apply on Android to experience the advantages offered by Huawei.
The Ark Compiler source code, for now, can only be used on high-end smartphones from Huawei and Honor, which limits the reach a little, but most of the customers of these companies purchase the most robust models, such as P20, P30, Kill 10, Kill 20, and Honor 20.
