The HongMeng OS – the supposed Huawei’s Android alternative has been the talk of the consumer world since Google revoked Huawei’s Android license as a result of the trade ban placed on it by the Commerce depart. The OS has since been enmeshed in a series of controversial leaks and reports. First, the firm denied working on any Android alternative, then it was reported to have confirmed that the OS isn’t meant for Smartphones, but for internet-of-things (IoT) devices, and now come reports that Huawei’s first Hongmeng smartphone will launch soon.

Chinese state media outlet Global Times reports that the firm is at the moment putting final touches to a smartphone equipped with the HongMeng OS that could see the Chinese giant less dependant on Google’s Android OS.

The device could go on sale in the last quarter of the year, the report further stated. And no, Huawei isn’t starting off with a high-end smartphone. The report says the unnamed Huawei device could be priced at around 2,000 yuan ($288). At that price point, it would seem Huawei will first test the waters using its lower-tier phones while Android OS will continue to power higher-end devices like the upcoming Huawei Mate 30.

HongMeng OS and Honor TV

The HongMeng OS will officially be introduced at the firm’s Developer Conference on August 9 in Dongguan, but will not immediately power Huawei smartphones. Instead, Huawei back in July revealed that the OS will first feature in the upcoming line of Honor-brand smart TVs.
