HarmonyOS 2 billion devices 2023

HarmonyOS is currently ruling as the China-exclusive (majorly) operating system and Huawei is looking to install HarmonyOS in 2 billion devices by 2023.

Yes, the aim is quite big but if we look into the progress that this software has made over the past three years, the company has already achieved many milestones that we can’t ignore.

How?

Let’s dive into the past installations, Huawei achieved over 200 million installations by the end of 2021 but it was only for Huawei devices. Meanwhile, HarmonyOS Connect, an operating system for third-party company products, launched 100+ million fresh devices with HarmonyOS pre-installed.

Moving to 2022, Huawei posted a heavy 320 million HarmonyOS installation mark in its own devices, and then HarmonyOS Connect launched with 250+ million third-party products.

Stepping further, OpenHarmony, an open-source version of HarmonyOS has also come so far to show its worth in the tech industry and made rapid growth in the last two years after its submission to OpenAtom open-source foundation.

The combined weight of HarmonyOS for Huawei devices and HarmonyOS Connect stands above
570 million devices, which is the biggest single-year growth made by any operating system. However, the actual number may have been around 700 million.

2023:

This year, Huawei may expand HarmonyOS in the global market and launch new products. On the other hand, HarmonyOS Connect could surpass the biggest figure, which seems more exciting.

According to inputs, OpenHarmony could post new records, as it’s used by various major Chinese tech players to use for different purposes. With all of these combined, HarmonyOS could successfully aim at 2 billion devices by the end of 2023.

Development Kit:

Huawei launched the “HarmonyOS Ecosystem Application Development White Paper V1.0” last year alongside three concepts for the development of applications and services in the Internet of Everything era.

This includes one-time development and multi-device deployment, that is, a set of code, business logic, and UI adaptation to different smart devices. With such functionality, Huawei HarmonyOS progressed two steps further in the world of app ecosystem development.

Huawei harmonyos development tools and kit

Atomized services can be separated or combined, and self-transfer. HarmonyOS and OpenHarmony are using a unified ecosystem to adapt application-native smartness, embrace a tripartite framework, open service capabilities from bottom-level chips to upper-layer applications, and bring users a smart experience.

In near future, HarmonyOS will continue to evolve based on the declarative development system and the three major concepts to develop the HarmonyOS application ecosystem in all aspects.

Huawei switched the declarative development system end-to-end from design > development > testing > launch, and upgraded the application development kit to the “HarmonyOS Development Kit”.

The HarmonyOS development kit also includes a complete application development and operation system: Design system, development language, UI system, compilation tools, development tools, testing services, and on-shelf distribution.

HarmonyOS Design covers comprehensive full-scenario design specifications, rich design resources, and design tools to help developers improve development efficiency.

ArkTS is the development language for HarmonyOS ecosystem applications. Based on TypeScript (TS for short), it provides corresponding capabilities such as declarative UI and state management, allowing developers to develop high-performance applications in a more concise and natural way.

ArkTS is a more concise and efficient JS/TS language “superset”, which further reduces the amount of cross-terminal application development code and improves development efficiency by 30%.

ArkTS provides a concise and efficient declarative development paradigm by extending mature languages ​​and combining grammar support for ArkUI. Combined with the design of UI components, state management, and other aspects, it unifies the development paradigm of HarmonyOS ecological applications.

ArkUI Framework ArkUI is the native UI development framework of the HarmonyOS ecosystem. The ArkUI rendering mechanism upgrade, the unique rendering three-tree integration technology, greatly simplifies the interface rendering algorithm and increases the sliding loading speed of the application interface by 45%.

The innovative stage development model standardizes the background process startup mechanism during the development stage, fundamentally solving the problem app lag issue. The logic and UI separation technology further improves the efficiency of flow development.

The Ark tool chain ArkCompiler compiles and runs mechanism optimization to bring the industry’s first dynamically typed language bytecode AOT compilation technology, which greatly shortens the startup time of dynamic type language applications.

At the same time, it provides a variety of source code protection technologies to improve the security of dynamically typed language source code. The integrated development environment Huawei DevEco Studio is an integrated development environment for the HarmonyOS ecosystem, providing one-stop applications and atomic service development capabilities.

Specific features include project management, code editing, interface preview, compilation and construction, code debugging, performance tuning, device simulation, command line tools, and integrated development of devices and clouds.

DevEco Testing is a testing tool for HarmonyOS application development. The test layered model of the HarmonyOS ecosystem application and atomic service is divided into the unit test, integration test, and special test.

Unit tests are function-level verification. Integration testing is divided into module testing and feature testing. The special test is a multi-dimensional test of the application/service, including a full range of quality checks, and also provides special automated tests such as performance, power consumption, stability, compatibility, UX, and security.

HUAWEI AppGallery Connect provides developers with globalization and full-scenario one-stop application distribution capabilities, and provides developers with capabilities in the fields of quality, security, and engineering management, which greatly reduces the difficulty of application development and operation and maintenance, improves version quality, and helps developers or acquire users and achieve scale growth in revenue.

Specifically, it includes rapid listing, certificate issuance, unified uploading of the package body, description information, materials, listing review, application distribution, and more.
