HarmonyOS: Huawei’s weapon against Android hits mobile phones in 2021

Huawei is ready to take a new step in the development of an operating system that rivals Android, as the Chinese manufacturer is unable to use Google’s application ecosystem and may even run out of platform updates.

As a replacement, the company plans to release HarmonyOS for smartphones in 2021. The information was confirmed by the head of the consumer business division, Richard Yu, during an annual conference for developers. In addition to political and commercial disputes over the operating system, Huawei also faces problems in supplying components such as screens and chips.

HarmonyOS, called Hongmeng in China, was launched in August 2019. However, cell phones were left out of the first wave of releases: the operating system ended up being used before in smart screens, notebooks, watches and other devices.

Second level

Now, however, the Chinese manufacturer that is the current global leader in the market for smartphones is willing to adopt the platform at all.

According to the news agency Reuters, a 2.0 version is in the final stages of development and a Beta version should be released by December this year for developers.
