Huawei already has its own operating system after accelerated development in its final stages due to the US blockade. The refusal of the United States of America to allow Huawei to access the parts that own Android (Google services) has reinforced the determination of the Chinese firm to have your own system, HarmonyOS, whose beta version is already open.
Huawei is not the first manufacturer to have its own operating system. LG has WebOS on its smart TVs, for example, and Samsung also has Tizen, the system it uses in TVs, clothing
HarmonyOS, the Android for those who cannot access Android
This time around, it’s no speculation about how HarmonyOS might be used within the Huawei ecosystem, but rather its own CEO has been tasked with unveiling the company’s plans. Richard Yu has stated that HarmonyOS has not been developed solely for its own consumption but isand intends to catalog the operating system from other domestic manufacturers.
Huawei apparently wants to use HarmonyOS as a loophole for other manufacturers who find themselves in the same situation. That is to say, manufacturers who are also subject to bans
HarmonyOS is designed to work on multiple hardware combinations and will remain open source
Thus, HarmonyOS will be available for all Chinese smartphone manufacturers. cannot access protected parts of Google’s operating system, the famous Google Mobile Services, and thus facilitate that they continue to put devices in circulation. Something that had already been asserted in 2019 and which now, in the mouth of Richard Yu, is once again underlined.
According to Huawei itself, HarmonyOS is internally prepared for work with a multitude of different processors and want to keep it in an open source format so that it can be accessed by any brand, even if Huawei takes the lead in development and evolution. In other words, Huawei has created its own Android so that it cannot access protected parts of Android. At least in China, we’ll see what happens in the future.
