As promised earlier, Huawei has introduced its own operating system - HarmonyOS.
As part of the Huawei Developers Conference 2019, a major Chinese electronics manufacturer presented an operating system that can run on a wide variety of devices. Initially, the system was supposed to be called HongMeng OS, but the developers chose HarmonyOS in the end. As stated, this name was chosen because the main purpose of the system is to bring harmony to the disparate world of electronic devices that work using different systems. In addition, unlike "HongMeng", this name does not sound too "Chinese". However, in China, the system will retain the name HongMeng OS.
The open source system HarmonyOS will be able to run on smartphones, tablets, TVs, smart watches, smart home devices and other electronics. The system is based on the same Linux. At the same time, the developers claim that the new system will work more stable and faster than Android, thanks to kernel optimization. At the same time, it will ensure the safe interaction of various devices in a single ecosystem. Application developers for HarmonyOS will be able to create universal applications for different use cases (the TV program will be able to work, for example, on a watch), using popular programming languages.
It sounds promising. But there are still few details about the new system. For now Huawei will continue use third-party developments. So, according to some reports, Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro smartphones, which are expected to go on sale in October this year, will run Android 10. But the younger model Huawei Mate 30 Lite will receive a new system. It is logical that the company will not rush to introduce new items, preferring to refine it properly.
