Huawei launches HarmonyOS as a competitor to Android and iOS – News

Chinese tech giant Huawei officially introduced its operating system HarmonyOS on Wednesday. This has been worked on since 2016, but the development gained momentum when Huawei was no longer allowed to use Google’s system on its smartphones and tablets due to US sanctions.

Therefore, HarmonyOS is not entirely new.

For example, the operating system can easily control a microwave oven or a smart scale such as a smartphone, laptop or monitor. HarmonyOS can also run on devices with only 128KB of memory on board – that’s a big difference with Android, for example,” it still seems.

Super device

In time, Huawei wants to develop its new platform into a “hub” that connects all kinds of devices, from earplugs to smart cars. Connected tools must be able to be combined into one in this scenario super deviceAs Huawei calls it. One asset is that apps for all of these devices will only need to be developed once. This is less time consuming for developers and thus can make the platform more attractive to them.

Alongside HarmonyOS 2, the company also revealed its first device with the new operating system on Wednesday, the Huawei Watch 3. However, the wait is now mainly for Huawei’s first smartphone with HarmonyOS, until the company can finally compete with the iPhone maker. Once again Apple and many manufacturers are still allowed to put Android and Google apps on their phones and tablets without any inconvenience. Think, for example, of Samsung, OnePlus, Sony, Xiaomi, and Oppo.
