HarmonyOS launched today by Huawei
Earlier today Huawei launched Hongmeng meaning Harmony in English, which was started being developed in 2017. The OS was launched at the Huawei’s developer conference by Business Group CEO Richard Yu. Well it all started earlier this year when Google was about to release Huawei from using Android and it’s services.
The HarmonyOS is currently aimed to power the IOT products such as smart speakers, TVs, wearables and etc. Even though this OS is currently not for Phones but Yu mentioned that in the near future if Google again tries Huawei not to use Android and its services HarmonyOS will be there as backup. The HarmonyOs is based on the microkernel just like the upcoming Google’s FuschiaOS and will be available on multiple devices and therefore there will be no need of different OS for different products.
The microkernel based OS is also supposed to boost the performance of devices and is supposed to be safer as well. Even if the HarmonyOS is released for phones developers will be able to convert their Android apps to HarmonyOS easily using Huawei’s ARK compiler.
As of now no one knows if this HarmonyOS will be any success, or will it be buried deep in the ground like Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile. Even though Huawei has a huge user base but people in the USA and Europe suspect it’s ties with the Chinese government and therefore only time will tell us if it is going to replace Android.
