Huawei Still Unsure If HongMeng Will Replace Android On Its Phones

We had heard that the operating system that the company is developing is known as HongMeng, but now it turns out that Huawei might be having second thoughts. According to a report from the South China Morning Post, Huawei chairman Liang Hua was quoted as saying, “We haven’t decided whether to develop Hongmeng into a smartphone OS yet.”

We should point out that Liang’s statement was merely a clarification about its HongMeng platform, where the company did acknowledge that it was in development, although it seemed to be mostly aimed at Internet of Things devices, as opposed to smartphones. This doesn’t mean that the company isn’t working on an Android alternative, but according to Liang, they would ultimately still prefer to use Android if they can.
