The tension between Huawei and the US Government resulted to numerous issues regarding the transactions of Huawei with different US companies like Android, Google, Qualcomm, and etc.
If this will continue, Huawei could lose the Android OS on its smartphones, it cannot use Google services, and it will not receive updates from different US-owned app companies.
But Huawei seems to have a backup plan just in case it cannot use the Android OS anymore. 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 up to May 13, 2029.
The application was registered under multiple categories, including; Operating System Program, Computer Operating Program, and Computer Operating Software.
Last week, Huawei has officially registered a new name for its upcoming OS as “ARK OS” in Europe. The trademark application has the same categories as the previous trademark information from the Hongmeng OS.
It looks like we could have a global name of the “Hongmeng OS”. As the company is looking to launch two OS; the Huawei ARK OS could be the name for the global version and Hongmeng OS for China.
Huawei ARK OS perfectly matches the company’s naming lineup of Huawei ARK Compiler, which is the company’s self-developed application compiler and system performance booster.
The Hongmeng OS was set to launch by the end of 2019 while the global version was expected to launch by the first quarter of 2020.
