The Chinese networking giant, Huawei reveals HarmonyOS for smartphones and smart home devices. HarmonyOS is the much-anticipated microkernel-based, distributed operating system that is being seen as an alternative to Android. The OS is developed to power smartphones, smart home devices, and laptops as the company attempts to reduce its reliance on American firms.
The OS will be made available for deployment in smart screen products such as TV, smart watches, and cars later this year. In next three years, Huawei will look to bring HarmonyOS to more devices including smartphones, said Richard Yu, CEO of the Huawei consumer division. He also claimed HarmonyOS powerful and secure than Android.
In a statement, the company said, “A modularized HarmonyOS can be nested to adapt flexibly to any device to create a seamless cross-device experience. Developed via the distributed capability kit, it builds the foundation of a shared developer ecosystem.”
