Huawei is preparing to launch the latest version of its operating system, HarmonyOS Next. Initially, it was reported that this new version would not support applications made for Android. However, Huawei executives later denied this claim. The ban on Huawei by the US in 2019 forced the company to develop its own operating system, HarmonyOS, as it could no longer use Google services under Android. The original HarmonyOS was based on the open source version of the Android operating system and fully supports applications made for Android.
According to statements from Huawei executives, HarmonyOS is an operating system developed specifically for the Internet of Everything (IoE) era. It provides a shared language for smart and connected features across different devices. HarmonyOS 4 has already been installed on over 100 million devices worldwide in a short period of time. Currently, there are no plans to distribute HarmonyOS outside of China, so Huawei users outside China will continue to use Android-based applications as usual with the EMUI operating system.
Although it was announced at the Huawei Developers Conference 2023, HarmonyOS Next is currently only planned for release in 2024. There are also rumors circulating about the support of Android applications on Huawei devices, but these claims have yet to be confirmed by the company. In addition to this, there seems to be unrelated and random game forum content mixed in with the Huawei news, which may cause confusion among readers.
In conclusion, while there are some exciting developments happening within the world of technology and operating systems, it’s important for journalists and consumers alike to stay focused on relevant information and avoid getting bogged down in false or misleading information.
