Compatibility with Android, the strongest point of HongMeng OS


China Daily reports that Huawei has already tested one million devices with HongMeng OS, according to information from Rosenblatt Securities. What is more striking is that it would confirm a rumor that for some time around everything related to this alternative operating system: its compatibility with Android.

Yes, HongMeng OS would be compatible with all Android applications, plus it would have "improved security measures for personal information protection," according to the company's report. No additional information about this software is provided, but some details are worth noting.

First, there are reports that Huawei has started to invite Android developers to publish their software in AppGallery, their own app store. This reinforces the rumors of the full compatibility of HongMeng OS with Android apps, and how it would be used to "strengthen" the ecosystem of this operating system.

On the other hand, Huawei registered the HongMeng brand before the IMPI in Mexico, and one of the documents states that the operating system could be used in almost all kinds of hardware, from smartphones and laptops to wearables, connected devices, and others. While the record may have been "just in case," it also notes that Huawei would be aiming much further with its new platform, which incidentally would be called Ark OS outside of China.

Regarding the launch issue, Richard Yu, CEO of the mobile division of Huawei, said that HongMeng OS would arrive between autumn this year and the spring of 2020. However, there is no exact date so far, so it will be necessary to follow waiting.

The situation is pressing, but there are possibilities for Huawei. While President Trump affirms that there could be an agreement between the United States and China that benefits Huawei, Google requests the option of continuing to offer official Android support to the company, to "avoid greater risks" to the security of the American nation.

This pair of situations sound good. However, the possibility of a final veto is also considered after a period of leave of up to three years, according to the request of a US government official. Then, it is as usual that Huawei is preparing alternatives to the different scenarios that could arise.
