HongMeng OS will be officially unveiled this month at Huawei’s developer conference and it will debut on the Honor Smart TV. However, the grapevine says that a Hongmeng-powered smartphone is expected to go on sale in the last quarter of the year.
The US government slammed heavy trade sanctions on Huawei this year. Those sanctions include a blockage from access to Android OS licences. Though there has been talk of relaxing those restrictions, Huawei is holding HongMeng OS as its get-out-of-jail card.
We sure would like to see a HongMeng-powered smartphone, if only for the novelty of it.
