Huawei has no Plans of Launching a HarmonyOS powered Smartphone this Year

This license was extended by another 90 days earlier this week .

Speaking at an event in NY on Wednesday, Senior Vice President Vincent Yang said the company has no plans to launch a smartphone with its bespoke operating system Harmony, which it unveiled earlier this month . Although things may not look too favourable for Huawei, Mr Yang still think we won't be seeing Harmony OS anytime soon, but you never know. While speaking during a press event, Huawei's SVP Vincent Yang said that they "want to maintain one standard, one ecosystem".

It's not surprising to see that Huawei is hesitating on releasing the HarmonyOS to smartphones since shifting to an independent OS all by yourself means the company will have to develop and maintain an OS for all devices as well as create apps and an App Store to make their phones the least functional.

Huawei, which has been caught up in the broader trade war-fueled tensions between the United States and China, is set to unveil a television running its Harmony OS, and Yang said he expects to launch a smartwatch using the platform as well. It announced that soon the OS would be used in all of its smartphone devices, smart-watches, smart speakers and also in-vehicle systems. The device is rumored to be a new version of the Mate series. The news came after it filed trademarks for the system, and even though an executive had said it wasn't designed for smartphones, it was reported that the firm was testing a smartphone running the OS. Like mentioned above, the OS could begin making its introduction to smartwatches, tablets and other products such as televisions. It will also be coming with Android OS out of the box. He added that they'll only switch to Harmony OS for their smartphones as a last resort if the ban is enforced and they couldn't access Android anymore. Huawei explained recently that it'll keep updating Android on any smartphone that's already available to consumers.
