Huawei debuts own operating system

Huawei debuts own operating system

Chinese telecom giant, Huawei, has expanded its Honor brand name from smartphones to smart TVs - the first devices to feature its home-ground HarmonyOS.

The company will show off Harmony OS on the Honor Vision TV, but for now, Android remains the preferred mobile OS for Huawei smartphones and tablets. The tech giant also stresses that the new platform will officially be open source, which could be a part of the firm's efforts to fend off USA spying allegations.

Following potential problems with access to Google's Android OS, Huawei seems to have stepped up efforts to introduce its own OS. Here are eight reasons as to why the new "Huawei OS" may mean "trouble" for Google. Huawei says the a modularized HarmonyOS be nested to adapt flexibly to any device to create a "seamless cross-device experience". The device is the company's first smart screen product, packed with Honor's "Sharp Tech" innovations.

The Honor brand Smart TV is just 6.9mm at its thinnest point and features diamond texture in the back, colorful breathing light in the front, dynamic screen saver, minimalist user interface design, and 3D arc full metal frame.

A new "smart screen", or connected television product, to be unveiled on Saturday will be the first product using Harmony, called Hongmeng in Chinese, Huawei said.

Then, over the next three years, they claim that "HarmonyOS will be optimised and gradually adopted" across a broader range of devices such as wearables and automobile tech.

More recently, Ren Zhengfei, Huawei's founder and chief executive, has said that the company's operating system was originally designed for telecommunications networks, not as an Android replacement. Whether it can continue to do so is another matter.

More than 4,000 Huawei developers have been working on Harmony, according to Yu. However, yesterday, Bloomberg reported that the White House is delaying its decision about issuing these licenses in the wake of China's decision to halt purchases of United States farming goods. About the HarmonyOS news reports are spread out that, In May US Government have started to blacklisting Huawei.

Apart from Google's Android, the only other popular operating system is Apple's iOS, available only on iPhones. Huawei have yet to release any sort of official screenshots that give us a sense of what the user interface offered by HarmonyOS will look like. There are a lot of big promises here, but it's going to be an even bigger challenge to build an app ecosystem to rival both Android and Android Open Source Project (AOSP). During the conference, he also confirmed that the system can be "deployed" and used at any time.
