Huawei announced release date of the stable version of the operating system for smartphones. Its release will take place in the first quarter of 2021, that is, until April.The Mate X2 unveiled this week will be one of the first smartphones to feature HarmonyOS, according to Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Yu Chengdong. In addition, this operating system can be preinstalled on smartphones of the flagship Mate 50 line, the presentation of which will take place this spring. HarmonyOS is expected to receive Chinese versions of the flagships, and Android devices without Google services will be released for the international market.
The need to release its own operating system for Huawei was due to the fact that the US authorities blacklisted this company due to close cooperation with the Chinese authorities and the military. Since the spring of 2019, Huawei’s business in the United States has been severely limited – the company cannot purchase components for smartphones from American companies and license mobile services for Android from Google.
As it stands, HarmonyOS for smartphones is an almost exact clone of the Android-based EMUI 11 shell with Google services cut out. For users and developers, almost nothing has changed, but with HarmonyOS, Huawei has completely removed its devices from interacting with Google services. Now it is its own operating system, and it will primarily appeal to and suit those who, for some reason, do not use Google services and applications. In China, this is almost 100% of the population (due to their blocking), while in other countries, most of the users need them. Huawei’s plans for 2021 include the release of various devices based on HarmonyOS 2.0, including smartphones, tablets and smartwatches. In addition, the company hopes that this platform will be of interest to other manufacturers, and has previously announced partnerships with four dozen brands.
