After understanding the core capabilities of HarmonyOS, some of the third-party consumer products maker, such as Midea has started to use this OS ecosystem in its smart home devices. Not only smart home but smartphone makers are also on the table to negotiate with Huawei on a possible collaboration for this open-source software.

From its appearance, we can recognize it as a smart lighting bulb or lamp that will unveil on May 31, 2021, at 14:30 (China time).
Most importantly, the promo poster and the announcement of the launch of their product clearly mention, “Hello, Hongmeng! Embrace the intelligent life of the whole scene together.” It means that the upcoming smart bulb or lamp will debut as a new member of the HarmonyOS family.

Could Meizu use HarmonyOS in its smartphones?
Currently, the Meizu phones come with pre-installed Flyme software skin based on Android OS. If the company has started to enter the HarmonyOS ecosystem then it’s a big possibility that it can shift over to HarmonyOS in the near future for smartphones and smartwatches.
