Huawei filed trademark requests for HongMeng OS across several countries

Michail, 13 June 2019

Huawei is hard at work on its alternative operating system and is gearing up to release the first devices with HongMeng OS in October. The brand has reportedly shipped 1 million devices for testing purposes and is also working hard on trademarking the HongMeng name in a growing number of countries across the world.

The latest patent in the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Global Brand Database reveals that a request to trademark the HongMeng name has been filled in a broad list of countries including Australia, Canada, Cambodia, the European Union, Indonesia, India, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland and Thailand.

Last month, the HongMeng trademark was approved by the Chinese National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA). The trademark descriptions reveal that HongMeng will be used for a range of devices from smartphones to tablets and PCs.

Building a new mobile OS from scratch is certainly no easy feat and competing with established players like Android and iOS will undoubtedly be a challenging undertaking. The largest factor here is the app support and we’ve seen reports that Huawei could partner up with Aptoide, which boasts a 900,000 app portfolio to act as a replacement for Google Play.

Huawei also has its own App Gallery store but will need to bring most of the top apps there if it wants to stay relevant. In the end more competition leads to better products so we’re looking forward to see what Huawei’s HongMeng OS has in store.

Man sony camera is everywhere problem is many phones with sony camera have much better image processing than sony it self. When comes to Sony camera Sony never won any doxmark test nor even was in top 5.

I personally don't like Sony phones too, especially the body ergonomics with thick bezels up & down. But when it comes to the camera department, Sony phones are among the few best.

Man its not about the camera but the way how the phone can handle the photos. Many other brands phones with Sony camera can handle photos very well but Sony phones are just as bad as they coud be.
