On July 4th, Frech ‘Le Point’ magazine posted an interview of Huawei Founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei, who talked about the company’s business and issues with the U.S., as well as the company’s self-developed Operating System.
Ren said the Huawei’s operating system is designed to work with a variety of devices including printed circuit boards, network switches, routers, smartphones and data centers.
Back in May, Huawei has filed trademark applications for “Hongmeng” around the global intellectual property organizations and most of them indicates the same things that the OS will be used for a series of different devices including smartphone, tablets, computers, wearables, IoT devices, and more.
“The operating system will have a processing latency of less than 5 milliseconds and the control is precise, which makes this system perfect to be adapted for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Autonomous Driving. For example, We are building this OS to make it possible to interconnect all devices synchronously, this is how we can project ourselves towards a smart society” said Ren.
While being asked about the is the Operating system better and faster than Google’s Android and Apple’s Mac OS? He replied “very likely”.
The most interesting things that he said, is the operating system is already operational in some devices in China. Although he didn’t mention whether he was talking about internal testing or open testing because yesterday we found that the company is conducting some tests on the OS.
After the business restriction imposed by the US on Huawei, Google and Microsoft have to imply the trade rules in which they’ve to stop selling their software services to Huawei. This will lead to the stoppage of Android and Windows to the company.
To prepare for such situation, Huawei was building its own operating system, first mentioned by Huawei CEO, Yu Chengdong, who revealed that the company will use it if the US bars the company from using Android or Windows.
For now, this is a bunch of useful information coming from the company’s founder and we’ll keep looking forward to any new news regarding Hongmeng OS.
