It’s all started in March this year, when Yu Chengdong AKA Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business division told, Huawei has developed its own operating systems for smartphones and computers in case the company can’t use Android or Windows systems following tensions between Huawei and the US government.
Recently, Huawei has registered trademarked for “Huawei Hongmeng” from China’s Trademark Office of national intellectual property administration with an application submission date of Aug 24, 2018, which was publically announced on May 14, 2019, and the duration of this registration is valid from May 14, 2019, to May 13, 2029.
The application is registered under multiple categories, including – Operating System Program, Computer Operating Program, Computer Operating Software. All of these categories confirms that “Hongmeng” is the name of Huawei’s operating system.
Moreover, the categories also include – Smartphone, Tablet, Laptop and more, showing that the company has prepared it for all its devices ecosystem, which we’ve also reported about.
Now the Chinese company has applied a new name for the trademark on May 24 with EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office)- Huawei ARK OS.
It looks like we could have a global name of the “Hongmeng OS”. As explained above, the company is looking to launch two OS. The Huawei ARK OS could be the name of the upcoming Huawei OS, which will work on all the device globally, except China.
The trademark application has the same categories as the previous trademark information:
1. Compiler software; operating systems for electronic devices.
2. Design and development of compiler software and operating systems for electronic devices; design and development of mobile phone applications featuring compiler software; Software as a Service (Saas) featuring compiler software.
We want to tell you that the trademark application doesn’t confirm the future name of the Huawei OS. It is just a secure step by any company for its future plans.
Stay tuned for the latest information about the Huawei OS.
