Huawei should make its own operating system, called Harmony OS, available for its mobile devices from next June. This is his response to the blockade imposed by the United States of America and several associated restrictions.
We are facing a platform comparable to Google’s Android operating system. Incidentally, this may be the new “OS” used by Huawei in all future smartphones and mobile devices to be launched on the market by the Chinese manufacturer.
We recall that Huawei was prevented from negotiating with US companies. Something that would not only affect its component suppliers (hardware), but also deprive it of Google services (software), even if it can continue to use the Android operating system since it is open-source, thus not belonging to any entity toilet.
The Harmony OS is Huawei’s big bet
Above we have the possibility to discover the main functions, menus, transitions and structural differences of Huawei’s Harmony OS 2.0 operating system. The software is still in beta, continuing to be developed and prepared for the user.
Anyway, we can already see the main features and news of the platform thanks to this walktrough published on the Chinese social network Weibo. We are facing the 2.0 version of the system, integrating the improvements prepared by the Chinese manufacturer.
Furthermore, it should be noted that the phone used in the video is the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, the company’s current high-end device that came to lead, albeit briefly, the market mobile.
Visually pleasing and structurally fast, this is the alternative to Android
Huawei’s platform has several visual and structural similarities with the Android operating system developed by Google. However, there is a notorious expediency, or speed in opening apps with Harmony OS 2.0.
This speed and quick response of the smartphone shows us the power and effectiveness of the software developed by the manufacturer itself. Like Apple, which prepares its iOS to take advantage of specific hardware, Huawei can follow this same path.
This would be beneficial for the user when receiving a faster and more optimized phone based on its characteristics and technical specifications. On the other hand, it would allow Huawei to personalize the user experience and work around possible limitations of Android.
There’s a lot of potential to be tapped with Huawei’s Harmony OS 2.0
The entire platform is still being developed. For this reason and as the author of the video points out, some instability can be felt when opening games, browsers and third-party apps. In fact, this is one of the most significant challenges when developing its own operating system, ensuring stability compatibility with third-party content.
Likewise, the more specific and selective that operating system is, the greater will be your dependence on apps and own solutions. This also entails an added difficulty for possible enjoyment of Android apps, among other platforms.
In summary, there is still a lot of work to be done by Huawei, but the results presented above are promising. Not only does Harmony OS look elegant and well-crafted, it also appears to be very fast when opening installed applications.
It remains to be seen what structural points it shares with Android. You will have your kernel itself, or was it encoded from scratch? In any case, we have more responses to be put forward by the brand itself over the next few weeks.
Visually similar to the EMUI 11 interface, based on Android 11, Harmony OS 2.0 will be crucial for Huawei’s future.
