More than a year ago, Huawei has been noted for planning on their usage of the Android OS just for flagship phones. Although, the HarmonyOS has eventually been introduced, and it’s been said that it could be of more use in wider variety of devices other than smartphones.
The Chinese OEM has decided on running the HarmonyOS on some other systems such as the in-car ecosystems and smart TVs. This operating system, also known as the Hongmeng OS, has been said to be of more use by the following year.
A couple of months ago, the 2.0 beta of the HarmonyOS has been made ready so that developers could use it. Fast-forwarding towards this day of the week, the new 2.0 beta of the Harmony OS has been made available for the other Huawei devices.
The new Harmony operating system is made just for the IoE (Internet of Everything). The company has been hoping to work along with many other developers and some partners to create a smarter and better ecosystem. The 2.0 Mobile Developer Beta Version of the HarmonyOS has been released just recently by Huawei.
This beta version is currently available to be used for developers and partners who would like to attempt in introducing the HarmonyOS 2.0 to some of their apps and products. This OS goes along with many new features, augmentations, and APIS over 15,000 that could be used by apps, cars, large screens, smartphones, and wearables.
The beta version accommodates DevEco Studio 2.0 Beta along with the distributed controls for UI and an application framework.
Some more updates will soon be released within the year 2021 that is coming ahead of us, which is just a couple of days away. Necessary improvements will be made through updates of the Homgmeng OS for better performance on their smartphones.
The main goal of Huawei would be to offer a variety of OEMs and experiences which relate to multiple devices that are powered by both 5G and AI.
According to Huawei, there are around 120 mainstream app builders or more that are using the HarmonyOS at the moment. Some of the popular names among these include China UnionPay, IFlytek, JD.com, Yoku Video, and a couple more. Apparently, the new operating system has been starting to get used more widely, well at least, in China just to assume that the company has been and will be doing alright with or without Android.
This may be an amazing feat for Huawei, but the smartphones they have produced for the past couple of years was already significant enough. Due to the quality of the smartphones they produced, they have overtaken Apple in 3rd place when it comes to smartphone sales. Two of their top quality smartphones would be the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and the Huawei P30 Pro. If you don’t have a phone, this would be the best opportunity.
