This week could see the unveiling of Hongmeng OS
According to a new report, Hongmeng OS, Huawei’s alternative operating system could be revealed this week. The report, which is uncovered by China’s state-run Global Times, may well be taken with skepticism, but comprises some important information that should be likely to authenticate shortly.
It’s reported that Huawei will first boast Hongmeng OS at its developer conference, which will commence this week on Friday, August 9th, in Dongguan, China.
The report compares Hongmeng OS to Google’s long-in-the-works Fuchsia, which is likewise a new operating system designed to run on various form factors.
It’s said that Hongmeng OS is also built around a microkernel so it can effectively accommodate artificial intelligence and can run on numerous platforms.
Nevertheless, it’s also said that a Hongmeng OS smartphone is very much happening and already involved in being tested.
The first device could unveil in conjunction with Huawei’s Mate 30 Pro flagship later in the year, with a release date set for the fourth quarter. Nevertheless, the phone is likely to target the lower- and middle-income segments, with pricing set at around 2,000 yuan (~$288).
