Huawei is working on a new email platform called Petal Mail as an alternative to Google Gmail. It may have features similar to Gmail, but with enhancements and a more attractive user interface.
Huawei has already released replacements for Google Mobile Services (dubbed Huawei Mobile Services), as well as AppGallery and Google Maps alternatives (Petal Maps). The company has also applied for a number of other Petal-prefixed trademarks.
According to reports, Huawei is now taking registrations and soliciting feedback for Petal Mail, its new email service.
Petal Mail is currently in beta testing, and users can sign up to receive it at this address. You’ll be given a @petalmail.com address and the option to give Huawei feedback.
It has a minimal interface, according to the leaked screenshot from the app environment. It resembles Gmail in several ways, with two-columns and things like Inbox, Starred, Draft, Sent, Trash, and Spam.
Huawei Petal Mailbox is an e-mail service role name for individual consumers, according to the details. Huawei has recently begun testing Petal Mail, which allows interested users to try out services before they can be officially released.
Users who want to participate in the web testing should go to www.petalmail.com on their desktop or tablet. The top three public test feedbacks will each receive 100 yuan. However, the testing is only limited to Chinese consumers, with the company planning to introduce these services around the world.
