After Google announced that it would stop collaborating with Huawei, for several months it has been speculating on the actions that the Chinese mobile phone giant would take in this regard.
Huawei says that if it weren’t for the trade war, it would have already become the biggest seller in the world.
It was rumored that the firm was preparing its own operating system, and it became a reality this week, when Huawei introduced its HarmonyOS operating system.
The highly anticipated software has been developed for both laptops and smartphones and other devices for home use, with a view to reducing dependence on Android in the midst of the commercial war between Washington and Beijing.
However, despite having submitted it, it will continue to be used by Google’s operating system for its more advanced mobile phones. Your new software will be deployed gradually and should be understood as an advance of Huawei to start developing its own technologies. In fact, at the moment the mobile operating system will be limited only to China, later it will be launched to other international markets.
HarmonyOS is designed to offer a consistent user experience across all devices of the firm and in any situation. It will be available later this year for smart watches, Smart TVs, vehicle entertainment systems and smart speakers.
Given this, the company aims to establish an integrated and interconnected ecosystem among all brand devices. In the next three years, the company’s focus will be to bring HarmonyOS to more devices, as reported by Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s consumer division.
Members of the company have detailed that the performance of HarmonyOS is five times higher than that of Google’s Fuchsia and that in addition the operating system microkernel has one thousandth of the amount of code in the Linux kernel.
It is important to remember the accusations made by the United States government about the supposed theft of trade secrets by Huawei and the risk it poses to national security. For its part, Huawei in the middle of the launch of the operating system, has reported that they use formal verification methods to reshape security.
As a result of the conflict between Huawei and the United States, users have questioned the company’s future prospects, and much more when Huawei has presented weak performance in the last quarter of the fiscal year.
Although for the moment there is no clear information of the future impact that the accusations of the United States will have for the image of the company, Huawei says that if it were not for the commercial war it would have already become the world’s largest seller .
