HarmonyOS, the “killer” Android from Huawei. A lot depends on the software installed on the mobile device because if this turns out to be terrible, even top-end advanced technical equipment will not save the phone from the slow operation. That is why more and more companies are convinced that you need to try to give the software as much attention as possible because it affects the user experience of using any smartphone.
Huawei has relied heavily on the Android platform, developing its proprietary EMUI firmware. However, this tactic was not very effective, as the American authorities deprived her of access to this platform, and therefore she decided to make it possible for everyone to download HarmonyOS, that is, her own development.

In August last year, a conference for developers of HDC 2019 was held, in which the public presented an operating system called HarmonyOS. Unfortunately, at that point in time, everything was limited only to the story of what features and advantages it will receive.
In addition, at the same time, the Chinese corporation Huawei announced that the first smartphones based on such an OS will enter the market in the fall of 2020. Such phones are expected to be the Huawei Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro, that is, top-level mobile devices from the premium price category. Then, starting in 2021, the brand plans to completely abandon Android, releasing new phone models exclusively on its proprietary platform.
As it became known, a proprietary Linux-based operating system entered the testing phase. In this case, employees of Huawei and the nearest partners of the brand can accept, but all this should be done in full secrecy. The company is not just hiding all the data about its new OS, doing this so that Apple and Google do not have time to prepare in advance for its entry into the market.
Earlier, the leadership of the Chinese corporation stated that the new operating system would not only be completely independent but would completely absorb the best of what is now, at present, on platforms such as Android and iOS.
Thus, a limited circle of people can now download HarmonyOS, and obviously, Huawei decided to start testing this platform due to its soon release to the market, because until October-November, when the announcement of the Huawei Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro is expected, only a few months remain. The new operating system will be completely free, and it will also be able to run applications from Android in compatibility mode.
The latest operating system will be the best in its class, at least that’s what the developers promise. It will not be known whether it will be released for phones already on the market under the brand name, but this is extremely unlikely because it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to implement an update from one OS to another, because no one has done anything like this before.
