Huawei trademarks new apps, most likely to be integrated into HongMeng OS
In the future, Huawei devices might not be able to use Google or Facebook software products and services, although the relationship of the Chinese giant with the US seems to be fine once again. However, since Huawei had been working on its own operating system for a while, there would be no point in bringing that effort to a halt.
LiveFace, Meetime, LinkTime, and Belink are the four names that have been spotted on the online trademark information platform TMView. As these names suggest, the apps behind them should handle chat, messages, and calling services. HongMeng OS will apparently target more than just smartphones and tablets since Huawei is planning to use the upcoming operating system on virtually all of its products: smartphones and phablets, tablets, laptops, IoT solutions, autonomous vehicles, and more.
In about a month — 9 - 11 August — Huawei will hold this year's Developer Conference (HDC 2019) in Dongguan. During this event, the company is expected to announce multiple products, including some that belong to the 5G and IoT sectors of the market. While the company will probably not unveil HongMeng OS in its market-ready form next month, one should expect to see at least some kind of preview.
If the rumors that made it online so far turn out to be true, HongMeng OS is no less than 60 percent faster than Google's mobile operating system and has a processing delay of less than 5 ms.
