Huawei Hongmen OS: Huawei’s Upcoming Android Replacement

Furthermore, Huawei has filed trademarks on 24 May 2019 with the European Union Intellectual Property Office. These trademarks include HUAWEI ARK OS, HUAWEI ARK, ARK, and ARK OS.

Huawei Hongmen OS: Basic Features And Design Layout
As we all know, Huawei has its own custom skin known as EMUI that the company uses on top of Android OS.
Well, Huawei’s new Hongmen OS will retain many exclusive features from EMUI. Ark OS will be able to run almost every Android application but it won’t be based on Android. As you can see in the above images, the design of certain elements of Huawei’s new interface were revealed when the company filed a claim at the DPMA.
Since Huawei can no longer use Google and Microsoft products it will now introduce its own app store that will be named as AppGallery.
In addition to smartphones, Huawei Ark OS would also function on tablets, computers, and smart home appliances.
Well, Huawei knew that one day or other this problem would definitely come up. Consequently, the company developed its own backup OS back in January 2018. According to Huawei officials, the new operating system will be released to China users by the end of 2019. On the other hand, global users will receive the OS update in early 2020.
