Today, on its official Weibo account, the company announced that HarmonyOS will be announced on June 2, 2021. It is not known whether this will be the premiere of the version for the Chinese market or the company will arrange a global release of the operating system.
Recall that according to the reviews of those who managed to get acquainted with HarmonyOS, it can be described as a “redesigned” Android. It is based on the Android Open Source Platform and this will allow devices with this firmware to run Android applications and Google services. The first tests show that the software works fine.
According to Huawei, its operating system is versatile and lightweight. It is less demanding on device resources. Harmony OS uses less RAM and storage than Android-based EMUI 11. As a result, users should get a smart device with decent performance and low power consumption.
We are waiting for the announcement of Harmony OS to learn more about the platform’s features; and the company’s plans for its distribution.
