At the 2019 Huawei Developer Conference, Huawei released its own operating system HarmonyOS AKA Hongmeng OS. This new operating system is based on distributed technology that can connect across devices and provide a seamless user experience.
Initially, HarmonyOS can be used for Smart Screen smart TVs, and will be expanded on more devices in the next few years. At the same time, there are rumors that the phone will be released with the pre-built HarmonyOS.
The following year, at HDC 2020, the company launched HarmonyOS 2.0, which supports smart wearable devices, in-vehicle systems and IoT devices. The company also made plans to introduce HarmonyOS to smartphones before the end of the year.
After HDC 2020, Huawei released the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile beta version for developers, and tested it against Huawei P40, Mate 30 and MatePad Pro devices.
At the event, senior Huawei officials also confirmed that the company will launch a new smartphone with a pre-built HarmonyOS operating system. However, the company has not disclosed any specific dates for the release.
In addition, the Chinese technology giant also guarantees that most older devices that can run HarmonyOS will use this operating system for upgrades.
