With this movement, it wants to open the door to new Partners to its ecosystem and that they allow access to a greater number of users to its services. HarmonyOS wants to be a pioneer when it comes to using 5G technology to improve its efficiency when browsing or significantly improve the interaction between our wearables and our mobile. Huawei’s intention is clear, to boost the industry and open possibilities towards a smart and connected life.

Innovative technology from HarmonyOS

HarmonyOS aims to transform the business of Hardware manufacturers, helping them turn products into services. Instead of being limited to the sale of a product, it will pool the hardware resources of all the devices that can be connected to each other. Thanks to this new business model, more than 20 manufacturers are already part of the HarmonyOS ecosystem.

The connection between different devices has been achieved without inconvenience, allowing any user integrated in the ecosystem to have facilities such as simply touching an appliance with their phone and connecting it instantly and thus viewing all the information of said device on our mobile. At the same time, these appliances will be able to inform us natively about their operation.

HarmonyOS will become open source for a wider range of Huawei devices in the very near future. Huawei Developer events now stop in a number of major cities, including Shanghai and Guangzhou, to offer exciting discussions on future technologies and projects.

The release of the first beta of HarmonyOS for smartphones is scheduled for December 16

HarmonyOS (known in China as Hongmeng OS)

HarmonyOS, which smartphones, tablets and wearables will receive it?

As we know Huawei , forced by international events , is developing its own smartphone operating system, HarmonyOS (known in China as Hongmeng OS) . In fact, defining it “for smartphones” is an understatement: the Chinese giant’s goal is to reach any class of device and any type of interface, from IoT to smart TVs, from smartwatches to computers.

Some products equipped with the system are already available on the market, but the next two years should be crucial for the smartphone segment. The official roadmap, in fact, provides that initially HarmonyOS 2.0 will support devices with a maximum of 128 MB of RAM, therefore IoT devices such as wearables and speakers. In 2021, support will be extended to 4 GB of RAM, so it will begin to include entry level tablets and smartphones; and by the end of the year the RAM limit will be completely removed, paving the way for more powerful devices.
