At the recent Huawei Developers Conference, CEO Richard Yu launched the 2nd version of HarmonyOS’s operating system. This is Huawei’s self-developed operating system, intended to replace Android, and can be used on a variety of devices from smartphones to smart TVs.

The HarmonyOS operating system was first introduced last year, and now Huawei is ready to make it bigger. HarmonyOS 2.0 SDK version will be available to developers from 10th September. However, for now, this version is only for TVs, smartwatches and car entertainment systems.

HarmonyOS 2.0 smartphone version will be released in December this year. Huawei has also confirmed that a smartphone running the HarmonyOS operating system will launch next year. However, there is no exact timeline.

Huawei has also opened the OpenHarmony project, just like the Android Open Source Project (Android open source project). It is open to 3rd party manufacturers to use HarmonyOS operating system, which will encourage more developers to participate in building this ecosystem.

Mr. Richard Yu said he wanted to turn HarmonyOS into an international operating system. From there, Chinese developers can serve global users and vice versa.

Huawei also introduced some new features of HarmonyOS 2.0 version. Like customizable user interfaces, AI audiovisual capabilities for voice and gesture recognition, along with new security features.

Since Google cut ties with Huawei, Huawei smartphones have to use the open source version of Android and lack Google apps. As an alternative, Huawei launched Huawei Mobile Services, which currently offers around 96,000 apps. However, that number is too small compared to the millions of apps available on Google’s Play Store.
