Despite the loss of its Google services in Europe, Huawei continues to be one of the most powerful technology companies in many of its areas of activity, either because of its mobile phones which already have their own ecosystem of mobile services, their smartwatches. , audio devices or laptops.
One of the company’s most ambitious proposals is Harmony OS, a system that aspires to run on almost any smart device thanks to its modular core, which only takes what each system needs and which, according to Huawei itself- even, will have a large deployment. in 2021.
100 million devices and 40 brands in 2021: is Huawei too optimistic?
Harmony OS is one of the developments in which Huawei is investing more and more, and it is that after Donald Trump’s veto on the company, he decided that his survival depended as little as possible on decisions of third parties, betting on own development.
Huawei’s ambition is not small, and it is that with Harmony OS, they not only intend to create a system for their mobiles, but for any connected device, be it a mobile phone. , a smart watch or anyone belonging to the Internet of Things. The development of the ecosystem is not exclusive to Huawei, since any manufacturer can adopt Harmony OS in its developments.
According to Yang Haisong, vice president of software at Huawei, the forecast for 2021 is extremely optimistic, and he says they expect Harmony OS to be available. on more than 100 million devices
While the numbers seem manageable based on devices sold or upgraded to Harmony OS, they may be overly optimistic. The public beta of Harmony OS 2.0 was released a few days ago, and while it appears to be fully functional, it appears to be largely Android-based, which given the announcements made by Huawei, could be considered disappointing.
Either way, Harmony OS is a system that continues to hold our attention and we will continue to closely monitor its progress.
