Service widgets are amazing and Huawei has built them deep into the HarmonyOS ecosystem. HarmonyOS 3 comes with two new handy features called stack widgets followed by group widgets, which we’ll explore in this session.

Service widgets:

Service widgets allow you to preview app info and access key features without opening the app. You stack different service widgets together with great ease or to save screen space.

First, you can swipe up an app icon to expand its service widget and touch on the pin icon on the top right corner to add its service widget to the home screen.

Alternatively, tap and hold an app icon with a widget bar indicator, then touch Service widgets, select your desired widget style and touch Add to the home screen. This will add that app widget to your phone’s home screen. However, there are different widgets size to choose from.

The difference between these two features of adding service widgets could be explained like these:

  1. Pinning service widget is a quick way
  2. While going for Service widgets will allow you to choose different sizes before you can even add that on the home screen.

How to group widgets:

HarmonyOS 3 has a new Widget group feature, which allows you to put app widgets of different sizes into a large folder and access them with one tap, similar to applications.

To do so, hold and drag a service widget to another service widget of any size until the two widgets partially overlap with each other. Tap and hold down on a service widget group to edit or remove it. That’s how you can create a group of widgets.

Stack widgets:

HarmonyOS 3 brings you the ease of managing home screen space with stack widgets, just hold and drag a service widget into another widget of the same size. Make sure you hold and align these widgets completely until they overlap each other.

Now you can change these widgets by swiping up or downwards as they are now stacked in a single place.

On the other hand, the processor can efficiently work in dual-camera scenarios. Ultimately, operators can have a crystal clear image with effective lighting due to the UB-RK3566 chipset.

You can check the major functions, below:

  • High computing power with less consumption: The processor installs a Rockchip RK3566 quad-core 64-bit Cortex-A55 unit and can easily support up to 0.8T computing power. Besides, it improves the battery life of devices
  • Seld-developed display chips: The processor already holds finer display chips to reduce the excessive cost of display components. These chips can bear 2200 x 1650 resolution
  • High-definition display: Since the processor has high-quality display chips, it offers an immersive virtual experience. It also supports HDMI 4K resolution at 60Hz, 1080P resolution at 60Hz, and more
  • Complete display interface: the latest processor supports HDMI2.0 interface, supports dual-channel MIPI DSI,  and can drive a 2.5K LCD screen. It also holds Eink, and can directly drive the ink screen.
  • Rick Interface expansion facilities and Strong network wireless connection.

These functions make the processor compatible with high-end IoT applications and work conveniently without creating any hindrances in performance or functioning.

HiHopeOS OpenHarmony China UnionPay certificate

Runhe Software HiHopeOS (based on OpenHarmony) has received a new China UnionPay financial and digital service certificate. Eventually, this certification will make the respective OS compatible with the China UnionPay technical specifications.

To begin with, the China UnionPay cooperation is releasing new configurations for digital service devices. Accordingly, these devices require an operating system that can be eligible with the latest technologies and specifications.

Consequently, to obtain a suitable operating system, China UnionPay carried out a qualification program. A variety of operating systems entered into this scenario. However, the OpenHarmony-based HiHopeOS financial release version is the first product to get the China UnionPay certificate.

To be mentioned, HiHopeOS distribution consists of multiple variants for different scenarios and operations. For instance, the IoT Edition for operating lightweight devices and gadgets.

As of now, the HiHopeOS financial version has gained digital service certification. This development will help the Runhe Software cooperation to indulge with more ecological partners and expand the HiHopeOS ecosystem in more sectors.

Digital Service Certification

It’s worth mentioning that the latest digital service certification was based on the following major aspects:

  • Basic requirements of the operating system
  • Interface layer requirements
  • System service layer
  • Security functions and technology
  • third-party library components

According to the outcomes, the HiHopeOS effectively meets all the points and is reliable with digital services and other high-end devices.

New developments with HiHopeOS

So far, Runhe Software has integrated with various industrial groups and partners to stretch the manufacturing of new products. Besides, the company has associated with several tech makers for smart inventions.

Up to this point, the company has developed smart POS, MPOS, code-scanning machines, cloud speakers, recorders, and many other useful products. Notably, these techs involve the HiHopeOS in their internal structures.
