Financial commentator Wang Qiang: Hongmeng breaks “Hongmeng” and minimalist networking has begun
Financial commentator Wang Qiang: We can feel that what Hongmeng has to do is not just a substitute for the mobile operating system, but a full-scenario operating system that truly faces the future.
First, it has established a circle of friends for smart devices. Like the previous reporter’s experience, there is no need to download the App, and the control page can pop up with a touch to meet the needs of users. This is different from the experience of downloading several apps, then registering and logging in for several brands of home appliances in the past. It solves the pain points of minimalist networking experience and services.
Second, build a pivot for strategic transformation. Hongmeng will promote Huawei to accelerate its transformation from an advanced hardware company to an advanced software company. The software service business derived from it will bring new growth opportunities for Huawei and become the best breakthrough for Huawei’s current business growth.
Third, accelerate the progress of software localization. Hongmeng operating system is expected to accelerate the integration and overall implementation of localized solutions in the Internet of Things era, and the independent and controllable kinetic energy of domestic software and hardware will also be released at an accelerated rate. Partners will continue to benefit from the expansion of the Hongmeng ecosystem.
After years of development, Huawei has accumulated enough user groups and equipment ownership. Huawei expects that by the end of 2021, the number of devices equipped with the Hongmeng operating system will reach 300 million, of which Huawei’s equipment will exceed 200 million. However, to realize the promotion of the Hongmeng system, it still faces current challenges such as the support rate of mobile phone friends, the number of developers, and the increase in terminal connections.
The beginning of “Journey to the West” said, “Since Pangu broke Hongmeng, and opened up clear distinctions from the world”, I believe that the release of Hongmeng system is only the beginning. After breaking the monopoly, if it is more widely recognized by the market, then Huawei’s vitality will be More tenacious!
