Huawei introduces a new cross platform operating system Harmony OS at the annual Huawei Developer Conference in Dongguan, China. This is the English name of Huawei’s Hong Meng OS. CEO Richard Dave said the new operating system had been in development phase since 2017. Huawei’s sub-brand, the first product based on this operating system, will introduce Honor.
Huawei aims to create a new operating system that is open source and can be used on many devices such as smartphones, smartphones, TVs, tablets, laptops and even cars.
Harmony OS is a micro-kernel-based operating system, which means it will use fewer resources, which will speed up the operating system significantly.
It is open source and has been introduced with the Trusted Execution Environment for security of all devices.
During the ceremony, Richard Dave said Harmony OS could theoretically replace Android, but the company would still use Google’s software as a consumer and Google’s best app portfolio.
Customers will be able to switch to the new OS in a few days if it gets more complex, Richard claims. Regarding app support, Richard said that Harmony OS will gradually support all Android apps, HTML 5 and Linux based.
Harmony OS aims to replace Android and become a global operating system in the future. Huawei will also provide a developer kit for developers to build faster apps for the new OS.
