Hongmeng OS for smartphones may take 6 to 9 months depending on the US trade ban: Huawei VP

Published

on


Officially introduced in August, Huawei’s self-developed operating system – HarmonyOS AKA Hongmeng OS is designed for the entire Huawei device ecosystem and a senior executive from the company reveals that the company will consider on installing HarmonyOS in its smartphones depending on the situation.

Vincent Pang, Huawei’s senior vice president, told Business Insider that Huawei will decide whether it will have to move forward with bringing the HarmonyOS to its smartphones in the next 6 to 9 months due to the US restrictions on using Google services.

“We cannot wait more, we missed one flagship,” Pang said, referring to Huawei’s recently launched Mate 30 smartphone. That phone runs on the open-source version of Android that doesn’t include any of Google’s services or apps, including the Google Play Store.

Back in May, the US Commerce Department added Huawei into the trade blacklist, prohibiting it from purchasing US technologies including Google Mobile Services.

Huawei has been developing HarmonyOS for a long time and will be used a cross-platform all scenario OS but currently, the company has denied the use of HarmonyOS for smartphones and it’s still insisting on using the Android but also said that the use of HarmonyOS for smartphones depends on the US trade blacklisting.

HarmonyOS is first used in the Honor/Huawei Vision TV series and will be used in Smartwatches, In-vehicle systems, and Smart speakers. This OS is also planned to be expanded for more platforms.

HarmonyOS version 1.0 is primarily based for Smart Screen and will come with beta integrated development environment (IDE) for early developers. Although there could be more than just the support for TVs.

Version 2.0 coming next year with enhanced performance, more features for IDE and addition of more platforms such as Cars domestic level (Chinese), PC, Smartwatches and other wearables such as fitness bands. Version 3.0 will be released in 2021 and focused to improve hardware and software collaboration with the OS.
