HongMeng OS, Huawei’s operating system, is not for smartphones. This is the affirmation of Catherine Chen, Senior Vice President and member of the Chinese company’s Board of Directors. Immediately after the ban imposed by Trump. There was confirmation of a proprietary OS to be an alternative to Android. But reports said that the company would prefer to continue using the Google system.

Huawei: HongMeng OS is not for smartphones but for business use and IoT
Chen claims that HongMeng OS has less latency and is much safer as it contains fewer lines of code than any other smartphone operating system.

In addition, in Europe, the Shenzhen manufacturer submitted a request to the EUIPO to patent an operating system called Harmony OS. Compatible with both smartphones and computers. Huawei’s future relations with the United States are still unclear but it is certain that the Chinese company wants to continue using Android on its devices.
