It is well known that Huawei is developing its own mobile operating system called HongMeng OS (or Oak OS), and now the operating system has entered the final stage of development. Last week, it was reported that the company is testing HongMeng OS internally on Huawei Mate 30 smartphones.
Today, some of the original test team revealed the main differences of Huawei operating system compared with the customizable EMUI user interface that was developed by Huawei before.
Accordingly, in HongMeng OS, the company added a new animated image, which appears when the device is started, and the operating system also supports flexible customization options according to user preferences. HongMeng OS users will be able to customize the home screen with widgets, as well as customize the lock screen.
The application icon is also redesigned, and the company has added many effects to make them look more attractive. There is also information that the overall user experience is quite smooth. Huawei has introduced a completely new notification bar and a sizable search box.
HongMeng OS also has a new reminder mode in the settings section, with a new ringtone to help it stand out. Regarding the camera interface, testers said the HongMeng OS photography application is still quite simple compared to the camera application on the Huawei P30, with fewer control options.
Testers said there are still many unused features; It is unclear whether these features are locked to ensure confidentiality, or they have not been fully developed.
Recently, when interviewed by a French newspaper, the founder and Huawei CEO Nham Chinh Phi affirmed HongMeng OS faster than Android and macOS. Earlier, a news report said HongMeng OS was 60% faster than Android.
The Chinese company has confirmed HongMeng OS will not only be limited to a mobile operating system, but it will run on a variety of devices including routers, network switches, tablets, computers and data centers. Huawei clearly wants to create a single operating system for all its products.
