According to the report of the Chinese journal Global Times, Huawei will show the world its own operating system Hongmeng OS already this week, on August 9, at the conference for developers in Dongguan.
Most likely, this software will initially be designed for Internet of Things (IoT) devices, although according to unconfirmed information, Honor smart TVs will be first to receive Hongmeng OS. The report also says that the new OS from Huawei will be built around the microkernel, so it “better adapts to AI, and can also work on multiple platforms at the same time.”
It is worth remarking that the Global Times report also said that Huawei is already actively testing a smartphone that will run on the Hongmeng OS. This device can be presented already this year, to be more precise, it is most likely in the IV quarter, together with the flagship of the company. It is expected that the smartphone will be focused on the middle-market segment, and its price will be about 2,000 yuan (about 300 US dollars).
