Despite denial, Huawei is testing Hongmeng OS on its smartphone

Huawei has ardently denied that the company’s much-anticipated Hongmeng OS is not made for smartphones but a new report contradicts the stance of China’s largest mobile phone maker.

According to Chinese state media outlet Global Times, Huawei is testing a smartphone with its homegrown Hongmeng OS which will likely go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2019 with the price tag of 2,000 yuan (~ $288), indicating that the phone will belong to a budget category.

The emergence of the Hongmeng OS as an Android replacement will be a severe shock to Google and will surely challenge its position in the tech world.

It will also be quite interesting to see the software on Huawei’s smartphone especially after the company’s executives have labeled it as an operating system designed only for IoT (internet of things) products and plans to debut it with Honor’s Smart TV lineup.

There is a possibility that the Chinese firm is intentionally downplaying the possibilities of its operating system as back in May 2019, in the face of Huawei ban, the company called Hongmeng OS its “plan B” and later trademarked it in multiple countries across the globe.

Multiple reports have also suggested that the company will be shipping 225 million phones with Hongmeng OS this year and even revealed that Huawei is testing the software along with Tencent (Chinese tech giant), OPPO and Vivo.

The leaked screenshots and features of the operating system also suggest that sooner or later, the software will make its way to the Huawei phones.

Despite the US ban, Huawei managed to increase its smartphone sales by 24% in the first half of 2019 and is expected to finally unveil the software at Huawei Developer Conference on 9th August
