Will Huawei launch its folding phone with Ark OS?

Update: Huawei has confirmed that the Middle East division has crossed the cables and have confused some internal data. The operating system will not arrive in June, and it will do so by the end of the year, as indicated above.

With the picture still not entirely clear (rather points to black), Huawei can not afford to wait longer and must react quickly. And what if he is going to do it, since according to what they have declared from his middle east division, they will launch their own operating system next month.

Ark OS, the Huawei operating system

Although the official name that was shuffled was Hongmeng OS, it was expected that the manufacturer would look for another reference to present its solution outside of China, and everything points to it will be Ark OS, since the brand has applied for the patent of that mark in Europe . Obviously, a name that carries the OS tag should not mean anything other than an Operating System, so we'll see what all this ends up with.

Whether or not that the final name, the interesting comes through a statement from the Middle East division of Huawei to Techradar, as the brand has assured them that their operating system that will come as a replacement for Android will be launched no more, no less than next June. This would accelerate things considerably compared to what had been heard so far, because if on the one hand the new operating system was not expected until the end of the year (and only for the Chinese market), this turn of events would take users quite by surprise.

A launch so imminent?

According to the CEO and Vice President of Huawei's business group for the Middle East, Alaa Elshimy, the brand had its operating system ready since January 2018, but due to the excellent relations they had with Google, they had not seen the need. to activate "plan B". Obviously, with all this situation with the United States, the panorama has changed a lot, and now it is time to try to activate it.

But then, are you ready or not ready? Until now the information coming from different sources assured that Huawei's operating system was not polished enough for a commercial launch. However, if we take into account that this Ark OS could be an adaptation of Android AOSP with the necessary adjustments to meet the requirements of users (an application store and some other detail), the work may not be quite complicated for a brand like Huawei.

On the other hand, another important detail to keep in mind is that the brand promised the launch of its expected Mate X with folding screen for the month of June, something that was in danger with the United States ban and that the brand could not afford taking in account the current situation of folding phones. Will Mate X be the first phone to launch Ark OS? Will they be able to properly interpret the convertible nature of the phone with the new software? There are so many questions to solve ...
