Due to the Trade war, Huawei’s smartphones could not be supported by Google GMS. This means that Huawei’s mobile phones cannot pre-install Google’s software and services. the sales of Huawei mobile phones in overseas markets have also been affected. The European market, which has maintained rapid growth, has experienced a significant decline in growth rate.
Although Google’s Android operating system is open-source, manufacturers want to pre-install Google services and some software on their smartphones, they all need to go through Google’s official certification; now the United States prohibits Google from providing this service to Huawei, so Huawei phones cannot install Google services and related software. It is worth mentioning that Huawei’s mate30 series smartphones are not pre-installed with Google services and related software in overseas markets.
At the end of last month, Huawei founder said in an interview that Google is a very good company, and Google’s research and development capabilities are very strong; but if Google does not continue to open GMS services to Huawei, Huawei will try to solve this problem; Huawei The solution to this problem is naturally to use the Android software alternative, Huawei’s independent research and development of Hongmeng OS is naturally this alternative.
Some time ago at the Huawei Developers Conference, Huawei’s consumer business CEO Yu Chengdong officially released the Hongmeng OS, which was originally used in the Internet of Things; but with Google’s attack on Huawei, Huawei considering to use the operating system on its smartphones
For Hongmeng’s operating system, Ren Zhengfei said that Huawei has been developing for seven or eight years. The biggest advantage of the system is low latency. Ren Zhengfei also said that the most important thing for smartphone operating systems is the ecosystem. Huawei wants to build an intelligent ecosystem for mobile phones. Huawei rewarded 1 billion dollars for developer program they need to develop software for Hongmeng.
There have been news reports that Huawei is likely to adopt the Hongmeng operating system on the P40 series of smartphones next year. After all, the mate30 series devices are not pre-installed with Google related software and services, which has a great impact on the experience of the mate30 series of mobile phones; Huawei currently has the ability to release smartphones based on their own operating system, so the P40 series is likely to be a new beginning.
As a Google partner, Huawei’s smartphones in the past years are all equipped with Android operating system, but the current form is severe, and Google has to do this bad behaviour to Huawei; of course, Google is also actively seeking solutions, just There is no better way yet.
