Huawei Hongmen OS: Huawei’s Upcoming Android Replacement

As of now, Huawei hasn’t revealed much information about its new OS. We can consider Hongmen OS to be an Android replacement that will allow Huawei to continue its smartphone business. According to EUIPO Hongmeng OS will debut as Ark OS.

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.

So it’s clear that Huawei will soon come up with its new OS and overcome every issue that the company is facing right now.

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.

  2. Im still trying to find out what we need to develop applications on the new OS Does anyone know as yet


    • We are not sure, but we do think Huawei will allow users to install .apk files on their new OS. Pls subscribe to our YouTube channel for further updates.

  3. In all this controversy with Huawei and “the rest of the world” about absolute nonsense really, I WILL NOT exchange my Huawei P20 Pro for anything! I was (and still is) a strong follower of them when they arrived on the tech market, offering an alternative and to compete with the flagship brand phones that everyone is accustomed too. In total, I have used 8x Huawei devices in the past 18years and they keep getting better.
    The fact that they already had contingency plans in place, shows their intend on being the no. 1 brand in the world.
    I will continue to use and upgrade with Huawei devices.

  4. I would switch to this OS on my samsung device as I hate all the bloatware forced on me by google and CO.
    I will switch to Huawei hardware to if this google/microsoft silicon valey strangle hold isnt smashed up. Monopoly is bad for everyone
