Chinese smartphone brand Meizu will integrate Huawei Mobile Service (HMS) Core into its phone system, a Huawei staffer @秋叶梓洛 said on video site Bilibili on Sunday.
After being placed on the US Entity List in May last year, Huawei released its HMS Core suit as an alternative to Google GMS. The company released HMS Core 5.0 to the global market in September.
If Meizu integrates HMS Core into its phone system, it will become another brand besides Huawei and Honor to support these services as a backup for when Google GMS is unavailable.
The services in HMS Core 5.0 cover seven categories: app services, graphics, media, AI, smart device, security, and system.
Developers can enable users to use Huawei search, AR map, video, app market, and account services through HMS.
The most basic functions of HMS include digital rights, cloud storage, machine learning, panoramic technology, in-app payments, advertising, push, and analytics.
HMS Core can provide support for Huawei's apps for Android, HarmonyOS, and LiteOS.
Huawei said HMS had reached 500 million monthly active users in 170 countries and regions as of December last year.
