Huawei Files Trademark for Harmony OS in the EU

Huawei is hard at work on its own Android replacement

Huawei is hard at work on its own Android replacement

Additionally, the company is still sorting through how to move forward with a new mobile operating system for its handsets, with Huawei presumably soon to be cut off from using Google's Android OS.

However, is there room in the market for a third mobile OS? All have failed. What would make Huawei different? Previously, the world's second-largest smartphone maker has also filed for a trademark for HongMeng OS name in Europe and nine other countries.

Predicting the probability of success of Huawei's very own OS is perhaps a topic for another day.

No matter what happens, however, Huawei wants to continue the development of its own OS, which means that regardless of the U.S. approach, HongMeng, Harmony, or whatever it'll end up being called, could replace Android on Huawei's devices.

In a surprising turn of events, Huawei has announced that its supposed Android operating system replacement HongMeng OS is in fact not an Android replacement. The US government had banned American companies including Google from doing business with Huawei.

Eventually, the Rockies would suffer through a 17-9 marathon loss to the Reds, a game that ended more than seven hours after it. He threw five innings, allowing four runs on six hits with four walks and four strikeouts in a game that the Reds won 6-5.

"We haven't decided whether to develop Hongmeng into a smartphone OS yet."
But not only is Huawei still shut out from buying parts it needs from the U.S. and still banned from selling its phones here - the firm is also reportedly planning to move ahead with "hundreds" of USA layoffs at its Futurewei Technologies research subsidiary.

It would be naive to think that Huawei doesn't have any plans should the US once again threaten it with bans and restrictions but at the same time. However, Google is now under a temporary license to keep supplying Huawei phones with Android updates, but that license expires in mid-August. The OS has been in the making for quite a few years.

Later on, rumor had it that the Chinese tech giant's OS was even 60% faster than Android and even MacOS.

Huawei has registered the name "Harmony" with the European Union Intellectual Property Office, reports LetsGoDigital, which may end up being the name of the software used on Huawei phones and laptops in the future. On the one hand, it seemed that Trump had made significant enough progress in trade concession talks with Chinese president, Xi Jinping that the ban had been reversed. At the moment, Huawei remains on USA blacklist as a potential security threat, despite Trump's reassurance. Companies have since reportedly started getting clearance from the commerce department that grants them the pass to deal with Huawei.
