Huawei Hongmeng OS is like Google Fuchsia: announcement in the week and first smartphone perhaps within the year?

According to a report by Global Times, a source close to the Chinese government, the first smartphone with Hongmeng OS would be closer than expected.
If by chance the name didn't sound familiar, this is the operating system that Huawei has been working on for years.
A "cousin" of Google Fuchsia, which would be able to run on the most disparate hardware, from IoT devices, to TVs, even to smartphones, although the latter hypothesis instead seemed to be set aside.
Therefore take the report in question with the legitimate benefit of the doubt, given that the various information on the subject is very contradictory at the moment.
The positive side is that we will soon find out if there is anything true below.
In fact, Global Times reports that Hongmeng OS will be unveiled in a few days, during Huawei's Developer Conference, to be held on Friday 9 August in China.
The first devices with Hongmeng OS, however, will not be smartphones, but a Honor smart TV (a hypothesis already advanced).
However, Huawei's ambitions would be much higher than this.
In the future, the source says, HongMeng OS will be extended to other areas, including autonomous driving, remote medical services and industrial automation.
And smartphones? Everything depends on Google.
If the American company continues to cut Huawei off Android, Hongmeng OS could also arrive on smartphones.
But despite the conditionality of the case, Global Times sources report that this smartphone will arrive in the last quarter of the year, and will be announced along with the Mate 30 series.
However, it will be a mid-range model, at least judging by its hypothetical price: 2,000 yuan, about 260 euros.
Our personal opinion is that at the moment these are all hypotheses and that the launch of such a smartphone is really strongly conditioned by the course of events with the USA.
Compatibility with Android apps also seems to be a staple of Hongmeng, but it's not necessarily enough to guarantee its success.
Moreover, even Chrome OS is, but this does not seem to have radically changed the fortunes.
