Last year, months after getting banned by the United States from using Google’s Android operating system, Huawei launched its own HarmonyOS (aka HongMeng OS) and new devices powered by the same are making their way to the market.
Huawei’s operating system HongmengOS for China and HarmonyOS for the rest of the world is not a copy of either Android or iOS. One of Huawei’s top managers, Wang Chenglu, president of Huawei’s consumer software division, spoke about this in a speech to reporters. HarmonyOS for smartphones is being considered as an alternative to Android. Earlier, there were information on the network that the first release of HarmonyOS 2.0 for smartphones will be based on Android.
