Ark OS: new name for Huawei mobile system revealed
The Chinese company Huawei registered three new trademarks at once, it seems that this is preparation for the presentation of its own operating system “Ark OS” known as Hongmeng.
As we already know, Huawei is developing its own operating system for smartphones, which can become an alternative to Android if using the Google mobile platform becomes impossible for the company due to US sanctions.

According to preliminary data, Huawei’s new software development is called Hongmeng, which is quite harmonious for the Chinese market. But to conquer Europe, such a name, to put it mildly, is not suitable. Therefore, most likely, marketers from China have already come up with something more international and short – for example, Ark OS.
Huawei has registered in the European Union the rights to three trademarks – Huawei Ark OS, Huawei Ark and separately Ark OS, which reports AndroidHeadlines. This may be the name for a new operating system, the development of which the company has already officially confirmed.
Prior to this, it was assumed that Huawei would call its system Hongmeng. This name is taken from Chinese mythology, so in other countries, this name may not take root. Perhaps Hongmeng will remain a name for the domestic market, and for other countries will choose a more understandable Ark OS.
The company does not yet disclose details about its operating system. According to rumors, she is working on two options at once – one based on the open source Android AOSP and the other fully own.
When Huawei introduces the system is also unknown. But this should happen in the coming months because future devices will already be released without the support of services from Google. Therefore, we can hear about Ark OS or Hongmeng before the end of the year.
As it was later told in the company, the commercial launch of the Huawei operating system will take place in June 2019, reports TechRadar. OS release will take place simultaneously around the world.
