Huawei's registration of "Huawei Hongmeng" trademark may be compatible with Android

After the United States listed Huawei as a banned "entity list," companies such as Google, Qualcomm, and ARM have recently decided to "discontinue". The reporter was informed yesterday that under pressure, Huawei chose to save itself. The website of the Trademark Office of the State Intellectual Property Office showed that Huawei has officially applied for the “Huawei Hongmeng” trademark. This self-developed mobile phone operating system is expected to be available this fall and to achieve compatibility with Android.

The website of the Trademark Office of the State Intellectual Property Office disclosed that Huawei has applied for the “Huawei Hongmeng” trademark. The application date is August 24, 2018. The registration announcement date is May 14, 2019. The exclusive authority period is from May 14, 2019. Until May 13, 2029.


In fact, Huawei's consumer business CEO Yu Chengdong has revealed that Huawei's operating system will be available as soon as this fall and at the latest next spring. Yu Chengdong introduced that Huawei's operating system has opened up platforms such as mobile phones, computers, tablets, TVs, automobiles, smart wearers, and unified into an operating system, compatible with all Android applications and all web applications. If the Android application is recompiled, the operating performance is expected to increase by more than 60% on Huawei operating systems, which is also an operating system designed for the next generation of technologies.

Technology independence will not be restricted, but Huawei's independent research and development will be doomed. As we all know, Google's Android system was released in 2007. After more than ten years of development, it has defeated Nokia's Symbian system and Microsoft Windows Phone system. The global market share is over 80%, and the global mobile phone is controlled together with Apple's iOS system. The operating system is about 99% of the share.

The industry generally believes that Huawei's Hongmeng system's compatibility with Android systems, whether Android will make Huawei incompatible through the underlying technology, will become the absolute core of the decision of Huawei's Hongmeng system.

Earlier, Google has made it clear that Google official will not cooperate with Huawei to provide system update support. Huawei can only use Android open source code to upgrade its system. At the same time, Google will stop providing Google's various services to Huawei mobile phones. Google further stated that the existing Huawei mobile phone can run Google services normally, but Huawei's new mobile phones released in the future will not be able to use Google services normally.

Independently developing an operating system is not only very difficult, but also requires a lot of capital investment. According to statistics, Microsoft's research and development related systems cost more than 20 billion US dollars, and Linux system development also cost more than 10 billion US dollars. For Huawei, increasing investment in technology research and development is imperative.

In the communication industry expert Fu Liang, the core problem of the mobile phone operating system is that in the software ecosystem, Huawei Hongmeng system claims to be compatible with the Android system, but whether it can be perfectly compatible with foreign mainstream APPs such as Facebook and Twitter, all need to be observed again . "Google, Apple and Microsoft's operating systems have always been several times more testers than developers. The new version of the operating system can perfectly adapt to a large number of versions of the APP. The workload is extremely large. Huawei is likely to recruit APP testers in large quantities. Because recompiling the Android app will be a costly long-term project." Fu Liang said.

Fu Liang analysis, continuous trial and error of APP compatibility, frequent upgrades of the Hongmen version, these are just "simple things" that can be done by manpower and material resources. Fu Liang said: "Huawei's biggest unknown factor is how many foreign manufacturers will block or block it from the bottom. If Twitter recognizes mobile devices and refuses access to any Huawei mobile devices, then Hongmeng's compatibility will be It is completely unachievable. In this regard, Huawei is likely to start a round of negotiations with relevant manufacturers to seek cooperation."
