For anyone who is eagerly awaiting Huawei's HongMeng operating system to come out in the near future – as an alternative to Android on the company's smartphones – new information is provided by Liang Hua, president of the company. Company, supply can cause a great frustration.
"We have not decided whether HongMeng can be developed as a smartphone operating system in the future"Liang told reporters in Shenzhen, although he added that this could change if the company returned to the US blacklist and Google's Android operating system did not support the company anymore – Recently the company has been "pardon"partly from the US to ease the pressure on its supply chain.
Mr. Liang's statement was also a repetition of Nham Chinh Phi's comments, Huawei's CEO last week when he interviewed Le Point, France. "HongMeng is not designed for phones like people think. We do not develop an operating system to replace Google – and if Google pulls its operating system out of Huawei, we will need to start building an ecosystem because we don't have a clear plan yet. Come on. "
The trouble here is that in May, Mr. Richard Yu – CEO of Huawei's consumer equipment division – told the audience in China that a new operating system ".will be available this fall and the spring next year at the latest. "Mr. Yu said, this operating system"has been studied since 2012," will "Compatible with all Android applications and web applications," and have "operational efficiency will be improved by more than 60%".
The confusion when information about this operating system between Huawei's leadership is becoming more apparent when it seems that Nham himself is not sure of the superiority at this speed. When Le Point asked if HongMeng was faster than Android, Nham admitted that the company "have not made a comparison yet", even then he added that"probably so. "
The confusion of users and analysts when Huawei Central itself believes that: "This series of statements doesn't make sense. We have to wait until there is a stronger development in this story"This suggests that it seems that the operating system is not ready yet.
But it also shows that Huawei will not close any of its development groups in the future. "The fact that an extreme stance as the US government did means that Huawei needs to invest in their alternative operating system."Professor Michael Jacobies from London Business School said."Huawei cannot rely on something as erratic and dangerous as the US government. It would be crazy when Chinese and Huawei companies are not prepared for Plan B."
