We have lost count of how many times we have told you about the mysterious operating system of Huawei: if HongMeng OS was a name you didn't like, we agree with you, but you will certainly find it more enjoyable HarmonyOS: this is the name (at least internationally) of the first operating system of the Chinese giant. It is not a fork of Android, it is based on a different architecture and it seems that it will make a path of diffusion similar to that of Samsung's Tizen OS: no smartphone, but IoT and wearable.
Huawei HarmonyOS: all about the new operating system
we had expected that would come during Huawei's press conference dedicated to developers and so it was. HarmonyOS is ready to become part of the most used operating systems in the world, at least these are the prerequisites. Designed primarily for IoT and wearable devices, the OS aims to become a platform that offers one continuity solution on different products.

Developers will be able to write an app code, via the compiler ARUA, and then this will be compatible from the start with all the products equipped with HarmonyOS without the need to adapt it to each terminal. So Richard Yu explained the idea behind HarmonyOS:
"We are entering an age where people expect an intelligent experience on all devices and scenarios. In support of this, we considered it important to have an operating system with improved multi-platform capabilities. We needed an operating system that could support all the scenarios that can be used on a wide range of devices and that can satisfy the needs of consumers, namely low latency and high security "
HarmonyOS is indeed also very much sure and above all able to manage system priorities so as to lower latency at the minimum, guaranteeing an opening of the app and an extremely fast task execution. By the end of the year HarmonyOS will arrive on the first smart displays, while within 3 years it will be present on wearable and smart car systems. It is not expected to debut on smartphones, at least for the moment: that Huawei has treasured Samsung's negative experience with Tizen on smartphones?
Of course, the game is still completely open: about ten days after the "suspension" period of the execution of the ban on the use of Google services – against Huawei – it remains to be seen what will happen in the future. On the one hand it seems that the tension is going down, but Trump has not yet clarified what are your intentions regarding the fate of the commercial relations between USA and Huawei. Meanwhile, the Chinese giant has presented its OS, reserving the right to use it on "different products": smartphones are therefore not to be excluded a priori.
