Chinese smartphone maker Meizu could use Huawei Mobile Services, may become the first non-Huawei phone vendor to use HMS

Published

HMS Core

Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) has shown its capability in the face of U.S. sanctions and empowered Huawei to stand up on its own feet in terms mobile software ecosystem.

But with its expansion, not only Huawei but other companies are not considering joining Huawei’s expanding software ecosystem. As recently, a Huawei staff member revealed that Meizu, a Chinese smartphone maker, will be using HMS Core in its smartphone and label them under the Huawei Mobile Services.

This is huge news and could be the founding stone of Chinese phone makers adopting Huawei’s own software services rather than going for Google’s. This could also bring us to see the adaptation of HarmonyOS in Meizu’s phone in the future but nothing is certain on this matter at the moment.

Currently, Meizu phones use Android services but using the HMS will allow it to serve China-exclusive services that are available on Huawei Video, music, and AppGallery.

Apple Huawei MatePod trademark

Clarification:

Although, the intellectual believes that the cited trademark (Apple accessories) and opposed trademark (Huawei MatePod) share the same functionality, marketing, and belong to the same industry. Still, the English latter composition, pronunciation, and overall appearance of both trademarks are easily recognizable.

Hence, there is no clashing scenario, so it won’t cause any confusion to the consumer of both companies. Moreover, the opponent’s claim of imitating the names hasn’t adequate facts, so the intellectuals are granting permission to Huawei.

Huawei Trademark Dispute:

Sony and Huawei: The Japanese company files a lawsuit against the Huawei Watch GT series in the UK IPO office. The reason was its famous racing game series Gran Turismo’ which is generally abbreviated as GT. However, the China-based firm isn’t easy to give up its famous smartwatch series label.
