"Presumably we'll be trying to put trademarks".
They say one million devices running a pre-release version of Hongmeng have already been shipped for testing purposes, and Huawei reportedly assigned the mission to evaluate the OS in its current state to not only its own employees, but people from the outside as well. That could be the reason why the U.S. tech giant has been lobbying for an Android exemption from the Huawei ban, arguing that the ban on Huawei will raise national security risks to the US.
After the US Blacklist on Huawei, many companies including Google cut off ties with the Chinese smartphone giant.
"Today, Huawei, we are still committed to Microsoft Windows and Google Android", Yu told CNBC last month.

Some major tech firms are said to be actively working with Huawei to push forward the release of HongMeng OS, which can deal a major blow to the US-led Huawei crackdown.
As another curveball to this story, there have also been reports in recent days that Huawei could decide to work with Russia and use a Russian-created OS as an Android replacement. However, Huawei's safest bet right now would be to make a smartphone OS on its own, since it's been effectively banned from using Android on its phones (other than AOSP), and having a homegrown smartphone operating system might give Huawei an advantage, if its OS could compete against behemoths such as Android and iOS.
The company, also the world's second-largest maker of smartphones, has not yet revealed details about its OS.
