Huawei is planning to launch HarmonyOS based smartphones – Let me first give you an overview of what HarmonyOS is. The HarmonyOS is a relatively new operating system for smartphones or any other popular smart device. It was initially launched in August 2019 by Huawei. Designed for smart devices, this operating system is perfect for TV and mobile operating systems. In this initial period, this is considered to be closed source software, but there is already an ongoing discussion to release it as open-source software.
According to the latest news, Huawei will come with some major updates. The Huawei P50, which should be built with HarmonyOS 2.0 instead of Android OS, will not be a reality due to the postponement of the P50 to May 2021. Harmony OS 2.0 will be expected to come with the Huawei P40 series, Mate X2, and Mate 40 series that will replace the Android operating system. The expected date is April 2020 and Huawei TV with Harmony OS 2.0 is on the list as well.
There are several phones that will be transferred to Harmony OS. These are Huawei Nova 7 SE, Honor 30S, Honor X10, Honor 9X, and others except Honor V40. Huawei and Honor smartphones that were built with EMUI 11 and Magic UI 4.0 are expected to be replaced by HarmonyOS later this year. Smartphones with MediaTek SoCs will not fit the plan to move to HarmonyOS. Models with EMUI 10.1 and Magic UI 3.1 will be customized with Harmony OS in a direct manipulation technique with intermediate stage skip.
Because it is a big name in the industry, the company will not destroy its reputation, but rather show an optimistic attitude towards the future.
It was possible for the company to buy SoCs and other significant materials from American brands, but a license is required to do business with Huawei. Therefore, the launch of the P50 has been halted. The new phones will receive last year’s Kirin 9000 SoCs.
It can be said that the Huawei P50 will run an operating system totally different, the HarmonyOS 2.0, which it claims is a courageous step by the company. Along with the world’s first 1 camera sensor called Sony IMX800, will be included in the P50 series.
