Huawei CEO, Ren Zhengfei, said Hongmeng OS is faster than Android and iOS in a latest interview with a French weekly magazine. Huawei’s new OS will also be able to implement more extensively.

In the past few months, Huawei has made it abundantly clear it wants to reduce its reliance on Android, the most popular mobile operating system in the world.

Ren Zhengfei, the founder of Huawei, said in an interview with French magazine Le Point that HongMeng aka Ark OS is not merely a substitute for Android.

He said the operating system developed in-house is not limited to smartphones or tablets. Huawei’s HongMeng OS would work on routers, data centres, circuit boards, routers, etc.

Ren also pointed out that the new OS would be running autonomous vehicles and self-driving cars.

Although prior reports have claimed that the HongMeng OS is 60% quicker than Android, Ren has indicated that their internal OS is under 5 milliseconds in processing time.

He also said that it is “probable” that the upcoming operating system will be more powerful than Android by Google and iOS by Apple.

Ren recognizes that competing with Android and iOS would not be straightforward because both platforms have strong support for developers.

He admitted, however, that the company is active in developing an app store. Huawei is hosting a two-day developers convention in China in August to appeal to developers.

In May 2019, the Trump administration prohibited US businesses from dealing with the Chinese tech giant, citing the danger of domestic safety.

Last week, at the G20 Summit in Osaka, US President Donald Trump surprised many when he relaxed the ban on American companies doing business with Huawei.

He did not, however, make clear when companies such as Google and Intel can resume selling Huawei software and hardware parts. At present, Huawei continues to be “blacklisted” on the list of the US Department of Commerce.

It is reported that this year’s HongMeng OS will launch in China, and next year’s worldwide implementation will follow.
