The Harmony OS platform, which Huawei introduced a year ago and which industry experts have dubbed an alternative to Android, has recently practically ceased to flicker in the information field. Either the Chinese decided to slightly reduce the intensity of passions so as not to inspire false hopes in users ahead of time, or the users themselves calmed down, realizing that even without Google Play, Huawei smartphones on Android can work quite well. But, be that as it may, work on the development of Harmony OS did not stop and continues to this day.
When will the new EMUI 11 from Huawei and what will be new in it?
Huawei is indeed continuing to improve Harmony OS and is committed to bringing all of its devices to this platform as a top priority. The head of the consumer sector of Huawei Yu Chengdong admitted this. According to him, the company’s developers and engineers are already testing Harmony OS on smartphones, tablets and smart home devices. But if the release of these gadgets is still in question, then with Huawei smart watches on Harmony OS everything is absolutely clear, the top manager emphasized, promising to bring them on sale in the near future.
Smart watches on Harmony OS
Despite the fact that initially it was expected that Huawei will release its first smartwatch on Harmony OS at the end of last year, for some reason this did not happen. Nevertheless, now everything is ready to bring the wearable device to the market and show him that the world has not come together in a wedge only on the Apple and Google platforms. When exactly the watch will be released, Chengdong did not specify, making it clear only that the release will take place very soon. And, given that the next official Huawei event will be held in September, then it is most likely worth focusing on it.
Can Huawei survive if it has to abandon Kirin
In general, the launch of smart watches on the Harmony OS promises to mark a new milestone in the distribution of the Huawei proprietary platform. According to Chengdong, the company has planned a large-scale expansion of the operating system market, hoping to launch computers, tablets, smartphones and even Internet of Things gadgets based on Harmony OS in the foreseeable future. In general, Chengdong stressed, Huawei expects that Harmony OS will become a global operating system that will lead to a redistribution of the market and capture a significant share for itself.
Huawei smartphones on Harmony OS
Obviously, the foreseeable future for Huawei is 3-5 years. The fact is that the company took exactly one year to optimize Harmony OS, which was initially launched only on TVs, for smart watches. But the technical and functional arrangement of smartphones, tablets and computers is much more complicated. Therefore, even if Huawei developers put optimization on the stream, the release of the brand’s own smartphones on its own OS is likely to take place no earlier than 2022.
It is confirmed that Huawei Mate 40 will be shown in September. What else do we know about him
We have already announced that Huawei will be hosting the Huawei Developers Conference in September to introduce Harmony OS 2.0. It is not known for certain exactly what innovations the updated OS assembly will bring, but you can count on expanded compatibility to be the key change. At least in regard to smartwatches and possibly partly smartphones. Still, Huawei branded gadgets should be able to work in pairs and synchronize information that each of them processes in isolation from each other.
