Huawei is a shoe master. In just a few months, from May to October, this company broke all records for changing its plans for the future. If I don’t confuse anything, the leadership of Huawei made at least four consecutive statements regarding the development of the HarmonyOS operating system, each of which refuted the previous one. Either the company releases the platform, it does not release, it will replace Android , it will not replace. At some point, users even began to think that in this way the Chinese just want to confuse everyone in order to surprise the market, but most likely the reason for changing the decisions that the company makes is the mood changes in the office of the US president. thinking, how to remove sanctions from Huawei, and at the same time not to stay on the loose.
Huawei will release HarmonyOS in 2020, but smartphones based on the new OS will most likely not be
The first HarmonyOS-based Huawei devices will be smart TVs, smart watches, speakers, and virtual reality gadgets. It is reported by Reuters , citing the president of the Huawei software division, Wang Chenglu. The first devices running the new operating system will begin to be released in the next year, 2020, which partly coincides with the company’s initial plans announced last month. And partly because smartphones, tablets and computers are out of the question.
When will HarmonyOS come out
TVs will be the first devices running HarmonyOS
According to the top manager, Huawei has no plans to release smartphones running HarmonyOS, wanting to focus on Android. But how so? Indeed, less than a month ago, in his interview with Business Insider, Vincent Pang, vice president of the company, said that Huawei can no longer afford to delay the launch of a proprietary platform and will launch it in 2020. The fact is that only HarmonyOS can help Huawei strengthen its position in the segment of top-end smartphones. After all, the company has already missed one flagship, which means that it is no longer possible to lose time.
Despite the fact that Pang did not say directly what kind of flagship he was talking about, it was clear that this was a Huawei Mate 30. This is the only flagship product of Huawei that entered the market after the introduction of US sanctions. As a result, the company was unable to obtain a license for Google services, and therefore was forced to install Huawei Mobile Services on the smartphone, which caused the delayed launch in many countries of the world, including Russia. Still, most of the applications are not adapted for HMS, which means that the remaining software will not fully work on Huawei smartphones.
Why is Huawei lying to us
All these changes in moods and plans for the future look rather strange, although not to say that unexpectedly. It seems that the different departments of Huawei work independently of each other and, accordingly, do not have the same information that others have. All this leads not even to confusion, but to real misinformation, which misleads users and does not allow making a real impression of what will happen to Huawei next and whether it is worth relying on the company’s ability to develop not only hardware, but also software, or pay attention to those companies that still manage to maintain relations with Google.
