New Huawei operating system: true or false? Here's what we know about Ark OS

By  Paris Ba 2019-05-31 901 0

Every day we are bombarded with news regarding Huawei, the possible ban and the future of the Chinese giant, a future that also passes by Huawei Ark OS, the by now very chatted proprietary operating system, a system that we could see in the future on the devices of the captained company by Ren Zhengfei. But is it all true what we read? In fact, fake news is always lurking. To make things a bit clearer, I decided to explain to you what information is confirmed (or credible) and which ones you absolutely must ignore.

If you want to understand something more about the Huawei vs USA situation, we suggest you look at our live broadcast where we try to make things a bit clearer.

It will be called Ark OS: TRUE

The name of the new SO now seems certain. The brand was in fact registered by Huawei with the European patent office, the EUIPO. A step that the Chinese giant has also made in Germany at the DPMA (German Patent and Trademark Office).

Beside this name it is definitely easier to remember but you could find another one, "HongMeng". Don't be fooled: it should only be the code name of the new system, a name that could hardly become official as it would be quite complex for Western users, Europeans in the first place to pronounce and remember.

It will be released next month: FALSE

TechRadar spoke of an imminent launch, even indicating June as the month of the possible landing of Ark OS. However, Huawei has immediately slowed down the enthusiasm and explained the situation better: Ark OS has been in development since 2012 and was ready by January, but the release was postponed mainly by politics. In short, if we don't use Ark OS yet, it's because the company prefers to maintain good relations with Google and other American partners.

When will it come out then? There is talk of the end of 2019 for China and 2020 for the rest of the world.

It will be compatible with Android apps: TRUE

There is no official statement, but the screenshots released by WinFuture seem to confirm this thesis: Ark OS will be compatible with Android apps.

Difficult at the moment to understand how, but the most concrete hypothesis could concern the base of HongMeng, that is the open source version of Android, version that, being precisely apart from all, Huawei could use even if the ban was confirmed.

It is not complex to deduce the reason for the choice: an operating system - as Windows Phone teaches us - needs applications to survive and proliferate. What better way then to guarantee maximum usability to users than to leave free access to the apps they already use?

Ark OS will be up to 60% faster than Android: FALSE

The news on the speed of the new OS branded Huawei was released yesterday but in reality it seems to be absolutely false or, at least, there are no official statements on the matter.

It is difficult then to reach this conclusion without knowing practically nothing of Ark OS and without having seen it at work. However, we cannot exclude that the system can actually be more reactive than the competition.

It will not be dedicated only to smartphones: TRUE

Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei's consumer section, said that the operating system is not just designed to run on smartphones and tablets, as is the case today for Android. Ark OS should also be compatible with PC, TV and wearable.

We will probably see it also on a folding board Huawei Mate X announced during this year's Mobile World Congress.

A strategy that now seems necessary since a possible ban would deprive Huawei of Windows too.
