Honor MagicOS 8.0 bring self-developed microkernel for better fluency



MagicOS 8

MagicOS 8.0 is the next major software upgrade for Honor smartphones and smart devices, and it may bring Honor’s own microkernel, says a tipster.

Input coming from FixedFocus reveals that Honor has developed its own micro-kernel, which is something that we need to look at. A microkernel is the near-minimum amount of software that can provide the mechanisms needed to implement an operating system (OS).

A microkernel includes two basic services but affects the entire software structure. These are memory and process scheduling. That way, the software maker will have better control over each process going inside the software.

The tipster suggests that MagicOS 8 is looking to achieve better fluency and power consumption reduction. Also, the software development will adapt low code and multi-device deployment. This is kind of similar approach to HarmonyOS. This new Honor software will also ramp up security and privacy. There could be more optimizations that are made to provide a fast and efficient user experience.

MagicOS 8.0 microkernel

Over the past year, Honor has made several new changes in the MagicOS software. Two of which are – the control panel and notification center. Once again, this step is identical to HarmonyOS and replaces old unified quick settings.

For the time being, we expect that Honor will heavily rely on Android and use it under the hood. The global models will continue to use Android in the bottom layer. Therefore, Android 14 will be the base of Honor MagicOS 8. Still, we can’t say anything about the home ground.

Meanwhile, Honor has a conference for later this year and we are likely to witness the launch of MagicOS 8.0. At this stage, we will also see a list of upgradable devices. Importantly, the beta testing may kick off right away without the top flagship on the radar.

These revelations about Honor MagicOS 8.0 microkernel are interesting and the fluency part will surely provide a new experience for smart device users.
