George Zhao AKA Zhao Ming, president of Honor recently sat down in an interview with a Chinese media saying that in the future, HMS will become consumer’s favorite ecosystems in the global market.
He said it’ll take one year or even less to become popular, compared to the several years of development invested by other smartphones maker.
Compared to Google Mobile Services (GMS), the global development of HMS will take some effort and both Huawei and Honor working together to complete the task, Zhao mentioned.
After the U.S. Entity-List, Huawei smartphones cannot license new smartphones with GMS and Huawei launched Huawei Mate 30 series with HMS.
Recently, Huawei also introduced Huawei Nova 7i equipped with EMUI 10.
Huawei Mobile Service (HMS) incorporates Huawei’s chip, device and cloud capabilities, including a full portfolio of HMS Core services and related IDE tools platforms for development and testing, along with key applications for Huawei devices.
The absence of GMS means that Huawei phones equip apps such as Huawei AppGallery, Huawei Assistant and Huawei Browser, Huawei Cloud, Huawei Wallet, and Huawei Video, Huawei Music and Huawei Reader.
Moreover, the company is holding its annual developer day conference on February 24 to expand the reach of HMS by introducing it to developers around the globe.
