Android Ban: Huawei Has Already Shipped 1 Million Devices With Its New Mobile HongMeng OS



Huawei has reportedly shipped 1 millions of smartphones with its new Mobile OS called HongMeng for testing, agency-only institutional brokerage firm Rosenblatt Securities said.

According to a smartphone supply chain report by Rosenblatt Securities, Huawei is said to have shipped 1 million smartphones with its new mobile OS for testing.

The report said the devices were being prepared for testing, though it didn't say if they were actual market-available phones or products that were undergoing developments. The report, however revealed that the Hongmeng OS will be compatible with all Android applications and that it has "increased security functions to protect personal data".

Huawei's CEO Richard Yu revealed that the company's operating system will be "ready as early as this fall or next spring at the latest" for phones, computers, tablets, TVs, cars, wearables and every other thing that you can install an operating system on.


The US placed a ban on Huawei after a year of heavy scrutiny, with allegations that its product could serve as a backdoor for the Chinese government to spy on US communications. Huawei denied all allegations that its products pose a security threat.

Huawei says that it has a backup operating system but still hopes to stick with Android and Microsoft OS and not to use its own operating system.

"Huawei does have backup systems but only for use in extenuating circumstances. We don't expect to use them, and to be honest, we don't want to use them," a Huawei spokesperson said. "We fully support our partner's operating systems - we love using them and our customers love using them. Android and Windows will always remain our first choice."


Though the US government has delayed the ban on Huawei for 90 days (from May 20), Huawei is preparing itself for the worst and isn't ready for bad news without a ready made plan B waiting to be implemented.

In fact, data from the UN World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) shows that Huawei has already began to file for the Hongmeng trademark in Europe, Canada, South Korea, Mexico, and other countries.
