Yu Chengdong talked about mobile CPU and Hongmeng system in an interview at the communication meeting after Kylin 990 IFA conference in Germany on September 6. He said that CPU also has spare tires, if ARM can not be used, use their own, Hongmeng system is basically ready, next March, the release of the P40 may be the first mobile phone carrying Hongmeng system.
Asked if he had considered some possible issues about using ARM in the future, Yu Chengdong bluntly said, I understand your problem.
He said, We can use ARM now and still use it. At the same time, we have a permanent license for specific ARM architectures. We can use it. But for future ARM architectures, if we cant use it, we have our own CPU, so dont worry, our CPU may perform better. Like our own NPU, its doing great.
Yu Chengdong stressed that CPU and NPU have spare tire versions. We still support the ARM architecture, just as we support the Android ecosystem. If they dont let us use it, then well use it and even perform better.
Speaking about the system, Yu said that Hongmeng mobile phone system is basically ready, but we will not use it first, because we also consider the relevant decisions and cooperation, if our mobile phone continues not to be allowed to use Google services, I think we will consider using our Hongmeng system.
Yu Chengdong revealed that the first mobile phone product with Hongmeng system may be Huawei P40, which will be in March next year.
