Huawei: Hongmeng is not an Android replacement, at least 300 million devices will be used by Hongmeng this year

Previously, at the Huawei mate x2 conference, Yu Chengdong announced that Huawei's flagship mobile phones could be upgraded to Hongmeng OS from April this year, and Huawei mate x2 will be upgraded in the first batch.

Recently, according to domestic media reports, Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei’s consumer business software department and head of Hongmeng operating system, said in an interview that Huawei’s goal of carrying Hongmeng devices this year is conservatively estimated to be 300 million. Including 200 million mobile phones, more than 30 million pads, watches, smart screens, speakers, and partner equipment.

When a reporter asked Huawei whether it would withdraw from the smartphone market, Wang Chenglu said that it would not. Huawei’s mobile phone business will definitely be in the market. In response to how to solve the problem of chip supply, Wang Chenglu said that there will always be solutions, including reserves, but Huawei will not choose to sell all at once.

Wang Chenglu said that some people think that Hongmeng system is a copy of Android. In fact, people question whether Hongmeng is a new version of Android, which shows that Chinese science and technology circles do not have a consistent understanding of open source software. Not all Android code is developed by Google. Most of the code comes from the open source community.

Hongmeng will also absorb the excellent technology and code of the community and use AOSP (Android)

The open source code of open source project determines that hung Meng is Android skinned, which shows that such Tucao people do not make complaints about what is open source.

In October this year, the third phase of Hongmeng’s open source code will go online, and there is almost no code from AOSP community contributed by Google. Wang Chenglu also calls it an operating system. The challenge is not technology, but ecology. Only one company can make technology, but it is unlikely to make ecology. This is the reason why we don’t believe it. Wang Chenglu revealed: “Hongmeng is open. If other mobile phone manufacturers want to use it, we will support it.”.
