Since the trade ban has been lifted, the Chinese company has taken a u-turn by confirming that Hongmeng OS isn’t designed to be an Operating system running on smartphones. Recently, Huawei’s senior vice president Cathrine Chen said that the Hongmeng OS isn’t intended to be a mobile operating system. In fact, Huawei’s in-house OS was never intended to replace Google’s Android in the first place.
She further said that the new operating system contains just a few lines of codes than a phone OS and has a much lower latency. Cathrine Chen further went on to explain that HongMeng OS is specially designed for industrial use only.
According to the reports from Reuters, lots of tech companies like Google and Microsoft have reportedly resumed business with Huawei. So, it looks like the Chinese company is in no mood to ditch Android for its own operating system.
The Android operating system on Huawei devices is working well for a long time now, and the company might have plans to continue with Android on the future also.
