Ren Zhengfei said: "The operating system we are developing can be combined with printed circuit boards, switches,router,intelligentMobile phoneAnd data center and other compatible. ”
For Hongmeng system, Ren Zhengfei said, “The system has a processing delay of less than 5 milliseconds. It will be perfectly adapted to the Internet of Things and can also be applied to autonomous driving.” Ren Zhengfei pointed out: “We built this system in order to be able to connect all objects simultaneously. This is how we move towards a smart society."
Was asked whether "Hong Meng operating system is better than Google's Android (Android) orappleIs the Mac OS X system faster? "On this issue, Ren Zhengfei gave the answer cautiously: "very likely" and gave a technical argument. According to a previous report, Huawei's operating system is 60% faster than Android.
However, Ren Zhengfei also admitted that Huawei has made a big mistake in competing with Google and Apple: "Compared with Apple's operating system or Android, we still lack a good application ecosystem."

On May 15 this year, the US government listed Huawei as an “entity list”. US companies need special permission to sell and transfer technology to Huawei. Since then, Google announced on May 20 that Huawei will be discontinued to update Android, which means that Huawei can only use the public type of Android operating system in the future, and can not get updates of Google Android operating system. Subsequently, it was reported that Huawei's own operating system, Hongmeng, had already started research and development, and it has been tested in some parts of China. It is expected to be listed soon.
At the just-concluded G20 summit, Trump softened his position on Huawei and announced that it would allow US companies to sell technology products to Huawei. However, Huawei said on July 1 that it is waiting for the US Department of Commerce to release the guidelines for the re-use of Google Android operating system on its newly launched smartphone.
