In 2020 Huawei faced great difficulties due to the heavy restrictions applied by the United States, weakening its capabilities in global markets. One of the biggest problems was the inability to use Google applications / services on their devices.
This ban forced the manufacturer to accelerate the launch of its own operating system, HarmonyOS, which was already developed a few years ago.
Now, at a time when the first devices equipped with its operating system are already reaching the markets, the brand has revealed extremely ambitious goals for 2021. During an event held recently in China, they revealed that they intend to have HarmonyOS present in more than 300 million devices later this year.
HarmonyOS was developed for much more than just smartphones
Wang Chenglu, one of Huawei’s top executives explained that the HarmonyOS is not a copy of Android or iOS, having been designed for much more than just smartphones.
Chenglu believes that the smartphone market is making great strides to a saturation point, which has been reflected in sales figures over the years. On the other hand, the device ecosystems around smartphones continue to grow exponentially, whether in the wearables or home devices segment.
The basic concept during the development of HarmonyOS was to be able to create an operating system that would bring together all the different market segments with regard to gadgets. With the growth of each of the markets, it is essential that they bear in mind an operating system that allows their perfect interconnection and cooperation, which is Huawei’s main objective.
By allowing other manufacturers to use HarmonyOS on their devices, the manufacturer expects to be able to add around 100 million devices in 2021 to its network.
