After the conflict with the US government and Lawmakers, Huawei is planning to use own Hardware and Software. Though the conflict has been settled, for now, Huawei doesn't want to face any unwanted problems in the future so they have been considering new OS for their upcoming smartphones. Today, on their Huawei Developers Conference 2019, they announce HarmonyOS, a new, open-source platform that earlier rumored as HongmengOS.

Huawei has been using Android since their starting days but they may not consider using them long in the future. Not soon but they might be thinking of their own ecosystem using this HarmonyOS. During the Conference, Consumer Group CEO Richard Yu said,” the first microkernel-based distributed OS for all scenarios”, about HarmonyOS.

HarmonyOS will run on all the units of the ecosystem of IoT as smartphones, smartwatches, smart speakers, wireless earbuds, cars, tablets, and laptops. Huawei CEO added, “ HarmonyOS is ready for the phones. HarmonyOS can replace Android on our smartphones at any time but for now, we will stick with Android”.

HarmonyOS will support various programming languages like Kotlin, Java, Javascript, C, and C++. Just like Android, HarmonyOS will be open-source means developers can use this OS and modify as needed for their hardware. This has been the key to success for Android and Huawei seems using the same trick.

SmartTV from Huawei/Honor will be the first device to use this HarmonyOS which will be disclosed very soon.
