Huawei has registered a trademark for its homegrown operating system (OS) “Hongmeng,”.
The detailed information, which can be found on the website of the Trademark Office of China’s National Intellectual Property Administration, shows that the application was submitted on August 24, 2018, and the valid term of the trademark is from May 14, 2019 to May 13, 2029.
The new OS, which is being tested, will be used as a universal operating system for multiple platforms including smartphone, computer, tablet, TV, cars, and smart wearable devices, Global Times reported, citing Richard Yu.
It will also be compatible with all Android apps and Web apps and come with its “App Gallery,” according to Yu.
“It’s not a difficult task to come up with a new OS, but it’s difficult to build up an ecosystem for that,” Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei said during an interview.
