Chinese telecommunications company Huawei has presented its own operating system (OS) HarmonyOS 2.0 for smartphones. A live broadcast from the event was conducted on the developer's YouTube channel.
The main distinguishing feature of HarmonyOS is that the operating system can work with devices with RAM from 128 kilobytes. The OS will work on smartphones, wearable gadgets, home appliances, and even cars.
Externally, the interface on smartphones and tablets at the first stage will have little difference from the EMUI shell based on Android. The company said that this was done for the convenience of users.
Huawei introduced the Harmony OS in August 2019. The developer reported that the operating system may come to replace Android. According to the forecasts of the company's specialists, by the end of 2021, about 300 million devices will work on this OS.
Earlier, the Chinese telecommunications corporation Huawei announced the sale of part of its smartphone business under the Honor brand.
