Although its relationship with the US has improved a lot and last month's troubles seem to be gone, Huawei is working hard on its own operating system. HongMeng OS will replace Android on a wide range of devices and some of its components — LiveFace, Meetime, LinkTime, and Belink — have just been trademarked.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
