Is there any place left for Huawei HarmonyOS?

Jun 08, 2021


Chinese tech giant Huawei officially kicked off the launch of HarmonyOS 2.0, its in-house operating system and (among other things) its replacement for Android on June 2, and it is set to start showing up in more smartphones, tablets, smartwatches and even home appliances.

For the biggest feature of Harmony, Richard Yu Chengdong, head of Huawei’s consumer business group, said: "The new system provides a new form of application services, services are no longer limited by the restrictions of the terminal, can be seamlessly flowed across the end. And users can see the tasks in the "multi-task center" on the phone and tablet at the same time.

Huawei officially launched HarmonyOS at the company’s 2019 developer conference. Unlike Android and iOS, HarmonyOS is a full-scene operating system based on microkernel development. In September 2020, it was upgraded to HarmonyOS 2.0. Since the Beta version for developers was opened for application, more than 300,000 ordinary consumers have got the upgrade of HarmonyOS.
