The world’s main manufacturer of telecommunications gear and number two cell phone seller is under siege from all sides of the mobile industry because of mounting US political pressure, yet both officially and informally, Huawei has over and over suggested alternate plans are set up to handle a prospective “worst-case scenario.”
Said situation could come into effect in a few months if no trade agreement between China and the US is come to, as President Trump’s respite will expire and a not insignificant rundown of Key Huawei accomplices and significant components providers are expected to cut all business ties with the questionable tech giant. That is probably going to incorporate Google and Microsoft, which will never have the option to allow Huawei to use their well known operating systems, services, and apps on the company’s smartphones, tablets, smart watches, and laptops.
Enter Huawei OS, otherwise, Ark OS, otherwise HongMeng, otherwise the most essential piece of the company’s backup plan puzzle for simply this sort of situation. While Trump’s executive order a month ago regarding Huawei a “critical national security risk” may have shocked us by, “HongMeng” work allegedly commenced seven entire years back fully expecting such actions from the US and so as to reduce dependence on Google… someday.
Huawei’s in-house OS is still not ready for primetime
Unfortunately for Huawei, the moment of reckoning has come early and all of sudden, as regardless of such a large number of a long stretch of preparation and “thousands” of internal tests, the HongMeng program stays unfinished. Its greatest rumored problem is framework wide Android compatibility, which would in a perfect world to allow it to consistently download and run every single app planned specifically for Google’s market-leading software platform.
Normally, that’s something that needs a lot of time and care to get just perfectly, and alas, Huawei’s engineers are rapidly running out of time. Ever since 2012, the revealed objective of this ambitious project that was generally held hush-hush recently was to emulate the best Android and iOS highlights and somehow make them better. While the “Ark OS” core is portrayed by inside sources in glowing terms, as a “light microkernel that can respond quickly to changes and batches”, it stays unclear how close Huawei is to figuring the Android compatibility code.
If the company does manage to eventually reach its goal, it may not require designers to manufacture applications explicitly for Huawei’s Android and play Store alternatives either. In any case, that is a major if, and it might be the fundamental motivation behind why the OS doesn’t have a “strong commercial release date” (or an official name) yet.
Tests are ramping up and a release of some kind will happen soon
If Trump’s boycott is not nullified in the next few months or so, Huawei has no choice but to reveal this currently incomplete, inadequately tried operating system and hope for the best. Until that happens, all the buyer product tests that weren’t played out all these years will have to be pretty quickly executed.
As such, Huawei is said to have recently fundamental motivation behind smartphones for pre-release evaluation purposes. You know what that implies, right? Leaks are undoubtedly coming, regardless of whether the OS just ends up seeing daylight in the spring, we should begin learning things about it a little while later.
For the present, all we know is that security will be a major focus, with “expanded functions” intended to “protect personal data.” Huawei additionally needs this bad boy to keep running on the entirety of its devices, extending from phones to tablets, wearables, computers, televisions, and even the cars of the future.
Obviously, it’s still difficult to believe Western consumers will rush to embrace mobile operating system lacking Google apps and services (just as numerous other US-made items), yet at any rate for a little while, the Chinese market alone should keep Huawei’s smartphone business above water.
