Next June 6 we have an appointment with Honor to witness the arrival of a new device that, according to the brand, will come to offer a 4D innovative gaming experience . To this day, we know that the terminal in question could be the Honor Play, the first phone of the brand oriented to an audience gamer .
What we did not imagine, is that the Honor Play could be the first smartphone of the brand to abandon Android, and bet on an own operating system developed by Huawei : Kirin OS .
Thanks to, the rumors about the Honor Play with KirinOS have gained strength. As seen in the first capture, extracted from the settings app, the terminal would have a Full HD screen, and a operating system under the name of KirinOS in its version 1.0.
Although it is not possible to ensure the accuracy of the catches, The truth is that the name of KirinOS would make a lot of sense , especially considering the importance that Huawei is giving to its division of processors Kirin, which thanks to the inclusion of artificial intelligence has become a key piece of development of the firm in recent years. In addition, only a few weeks ago we learned that Huawei was working on the development of an alternative software to Android, which at the moment I had no intention of using.
In the second image, you can see a supposed photograph of the terminal, whose design stands out for the screen of reduced frames and ‘notch’ at the top. These features, however, do not seem to match the Full HD 1080p resolution that is specified in the terminal information, since the screen ratio would be higher than the 16: 9 that are specified. Be that as it may, again the interesting thing resides in the lower part, where the supposed KirinOS logo, next to the slogan Powered by Linux , which suggests that the Huawei operating system, like Android, would be based on Linux.
For now we must wait until we receive more news, and not let ourselves be carried away by these first rumors about the Honor Play with KirinOS . Still, it’s not the first time we’ve received news about the company’s intention to break away from Android bit by bit, and this could be the first step towards a new era.
