Huawei's new operating system is "Aurora OS"? What exactly is its relationship with HongMeng or Ark?

Huawei had previously applied for a trademark for its HongMeng operating system in Peru. The sign shows that the company may be deploying a backup plan in key markets in case US sanctions crack down on its current business model. However, the claim of "HongMeng or Ark OS" has not been officially confirmed by Huawei.

This was followed for the first time by a report from the Russian media that Huawei's Android "backup" operating system was not from scratch, but based on previous achievements. The report quoted two sources as saying that Huawei executives had discussed the use of Aurora OS with the Russian side.

Aurora (aurora) OS, formerly known as Sailfish (swordfish), is an open source mobile operating system in Russia. Rostelecom, Russia's largest telecommunications company, bought a 3/4 stake in developer OMP last year. In most countries in the world, Android and iOS are the most commonly used mobile phone systems, but Aurora is more widely used and promoted in Russia.

Sailfish was further developed and renamed Aurora after it was acquired by Rostelecom. Because of its ease of operation and security, it has become the primary system of Russia's "alternative Android" program in 2016, and has been widely used in various fields of Russian society.

Huawei has begun testing Aurora OS on equipment, according to the report.

Based on this information alone, it is not possible to judge the relationship between Aurora OS and Hongmeng / Ark. Huawei plans to launch its own operating system "Hongmeng OS" in the fall, Huawei and Russia Aurora operating system for in-depth cooperative research and development, will undoubtedly provide Huawei with more self-developed operating system user cluster feedback and diversified optimization data, which will also add "double insurance" to Huawei's operating system security.
