Huawei has been working on its own operating system for years now, but it’s no secret that those plans have been accelerated since the Chinese company was placed on the United States’ Entity List. That said, we’ve heard a number of names of what the new operating system will be called, but a new trademark throws another name into the mix.
Technology publication LetsGoDigital did some digging, and found a trademark application from Huawei at the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). It’s for something called “Harmony”, which is cited as related to “mobile operating systems; computer operating systems; downloadable operating system programs.”
The trademark application was submitted by a company called Forresters, the same company that filed for Huawei’s Hongmeng OS patent.
If the United States, Huawei, and China make good, Huawei may not be so rushed to get its new operating system out there; however, we don’t believe they would abandon those plans altogether, as Huawei likely doesn’t want to go through this turmoil again in the future.
