Facebook Pre-Installs Not Available on Huawei Devices

As early as August a year ago, Huawei had registered the HongMeng trademark in the Trademark Office of the State Intellectual Property Office of China.

Huawei was blacklisted by the US last month after the Trump administration claimed the company's technology could be used by China for spying. It wouldn't surprise us if Huawei dropped or decreased any existing publishing fees to encourage more developers to jump on board.

Huawei now has a three-month general licence to continue using the Google-certified version of Android, but the future is uncertain for the company once this ends - forcing the company to make alternative arrangements.

Besides, these apps will still be available on the Google Play Store. Ever since 2012, the reported goal of this ambitious project that was largely kept under wraps until recently was to emulate the best Android and iOS features and somehow make them better. Perhaps Google doesn't want Huawei owning its own OS because that will, in turn, hurt Android sales in countries outside of China. Now, HUAWEI needs more apps to be running on its new platform so that it can replace the Play Store that Android users have gotten used to. The company trademarked the name "ARK OS", though some say that the official OS will be called "OAK OS". The Chinese OEM finds itself having to develop its own OS from scratch (or bring forth the one it claims it's been working on for some months now) in order to prepare for its Android license revocation, effective on August 19. Until that happens, all the consumer product tests that weren't performed all these years will have to be pretty hastily executed.

Huawei has announced that it has shipped over 1 million devices with its own HongMeng OS installed on them.

Three years later, in 1964, Karnad wrote Tughlaq , another play based on the story of the 14th-century king Muhammad bin Tughluq. As per his last wish, the family has made a decision to not follow any religious and state honour during his last rites.


The Huawei controversy timeline: Everything you need to know!

There were no images of the Home screen or anything other than the menu, so they don't tell us much about the Hongmeng OS, except that the menus look relatively similar to Android.

Google revoked Huawei's Android license when President Donald Trump added Huawei to its Entity List, mandating that all United States companies request permission from the Federal Government to do business with Huawei.

For the time being, all we know is that security will be a major focus, with "increased functions" created to "protect personal data".
