At the China Open Source Summit 2019 that was held in Shanghai recently, the Vice President of Huawei strategy and industry development – Xiao Ran has said that the companies ARK compiler will be officially open source in August 2019. Huawei is inviting partners and application developers to join the “Ark of Friends Circle” to create a terminal ecological ark. This is for building a fair and open global ecosystem and open source of this Ark compiler will be an important step of HongMeng operating system for Huawei.
This move from Huawei comes after the US has blacklisted it and then Google has also announced it would be stopping its services to Huawei and would now provide Android services to the company. All this happened a few weeks earlier and after this Huawei announced it has been researching its own operating system. Huawei has also launched the revolutionary “Ark Compiler” at the launch conference of the Huawei P3o which will improve the performance through architecture-level optimization.
According to the claims of Huawei, the Ark compiler will improve system fluency by 24 percent and the system response speed by 44 percent and third-party applications can be fluent after recompilation by 60 percent. Huawei is also upgrading the ARK compiler to its flagship model to improve the fluency of the system further. According to TechWeb, which is a Chinese media, it is difficult to launch HongMeng system since there is difficulty in the construction of the ecosystem but not in the technical department.
Recently we have seen the Yun OS that was launched jointly by Ali and Meizu which have achieved a market share of 7 percent and became second in China after a rapid decline of iOS because of poor compatibility. The open source of the Ark compiler will be attracting developers to join hands with Huawei ecosystem and prepare for its launch very soon. What are your views on this new ecosystem from Huawei? Will you use the HongMeng OS after its release? Let us know by commenting in the section below and stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more.
