A new report claims that Hongmeng OS, Huawei's alternative operating system that may not be able to replace Android, may be close to breaking coverage. The report comes from China's state-run Global Times and should be taken with some skepticism, but contains some important details that should be verified soon enough.
First of all, Huawei will reportedly showcase the Hongmeng Olympics at its developer conference, which starts this week on Friday 9. August in Dongguan, China. Huawei executives have said that the software is primarily designed for IoT devices, although it will first come to honorable TVs, according to Reuters.
The report compares the Hongmeng OS with Google's longstanding Fuchsia, which is similarly an experimental operating system designed to run on various form factors. The Hongmeng OS is also said to be built around a micro-kernel, so it "can better accommodate artificial intelligence and run on multiple platforms."
