Huawei with other firms including JD.com, Runhe, Ekatong, and many others had donated the core codes in four groups for the project. Besides, Andrei Gherzan, Bernhard Rosenkraenzer, and Jianyu Liu with their colleagues from the 18 firms had participated individually.

The recently released OpenHarmony 2.2 Beta 2 comes with support for distributed capabilities, cross-device ability transfer, and LiteOS.

LiteOS is a lightweight real-time operating system that helps in faster graphics accelerated rendering function, and staged adaption to development platforms such as Dayu and Raspberry Pi with typically distributed capabilities.

Furthermore, this new update also brings support for distributed cross-device ability transfer. It now has the ability to link multi-devices, so that applications can be divided, combined, and circulated without interruptions.

In September 2020, Huawei donated code related to the smart device operating system to the Open Atom Open Source foundation which was open source. And hence, this project was named as OpenAtom OpenHarmony.

In August 2019, Huawei launched its self-developed operating system, HarmonyOS, also known as Hongmeng OS. This new OS is a new microkernel-based, distributed operating system designed to deliver a diverse user experience across all devices and scenarios. Initially, the OS only supported Huawei smart TVs. However, with the growing U.S. pressure, Huawei has increased its speed and preparation to bring the HarmonyOS on more platforms.

At Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) 2020, Huawei announced HarmonyOS 2.0, which supports more platforms compared to its predecessor.

According to the official roadmap, HarmonyOS 2.0 will support devices with up to 128MB RAM, such as smart wearables and other IoT devices. In 2021, It’ll support devices up to 4GB RAM, such as tablets and entry-level smartphones. By the end of 2021, this RAM limit will increase over 4GB and open a way for the support of flagship smartphones.

At an event on June 2, 2021, Huawei officially launched HarmonyOS for smartphone devices announced a roadmap of upgrading almost every possible device that goes way back up to 2016. This upgrade plan is surely something and both Huawei and Honor phones are part of this journey.
