Huawei has officially announced its own HarmonyOS (HongmengOS) during the annual Huawei Developers Conference in Dongguan, China.
HarmonyOS is a microkernel-based operating system which means it will use as few resources as possible, ensuring fast operating speeds and minimum latency levels. It’s open-source and comes with a TEE (Trusted Execution Environment) for improved security across all devices.
The operating system has been in development since 2017 and Huawei is really serious in perfecting it as an alternative for Android.
This new OS is trying to provide an open-source platform capable of running on a broad range of devices ranging from smartphones to smart wearables, TVs, tablets, laptops, and even cars.
The main goal of HarmonyOS is to take on Android and become a “global operating system” in the future.
Huawei will provide dev kits to its partners to immediately begin developing compatible apps and speed up the process of integration for the new operating system.
According to Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu, the first product running in the new HarmonyOS will be unveiled today by their sub-brand Honor.
