Nokia phones will likely be one of the first smartphones to use Huawei’s HarmonyOS operating system, according to IT Home information.
Although HarmonyOS is not considered an Android alternative, it is true that Huawei accelerated development of this operating system after the US government forced Google to cut ties with the company. At its core, it’s an operating system designed to work across a variety of products, from smartphones to IoT products.
The operating system has officially launched and can now be installed on some older Huawei phones, as an alternative to Android.
Since Huawei still cannot legally install Google Mobile Services (GMS) on their phones, which are necessary for the Google Play Store and popular apps like Google Chrome, YouTube, Gmail, and Google Maps, HarmonyOS is not really stand a chance against Android in most markets.
In China, however, it could be a different story, where Google apps are blocked. That could be the reason why Nokia most likely only plans to use HarmonyOS for models in China. According to the report, the Nokia X60 and X60 Pro will launch in China later this year and they will ship with Huawei’s operating system.
This smartphone line is rumored to have a curved screen and a 6,000mAh battery, a ZEISS-branded camera with a 200MP main sensor. Other possible specs include a 144Hz display, fast charging, and a flagship Snapdragon chipset.
Chinese company Meizu also plans to use HarmonyOS, and Oppo, Xiaomi and Vivo are also said to have contacted Huawei about the platform.
