Huawei has just provided the beta of Harmony OS, its own operating system, to developers, although in its version it will have an interface design different from that currently shown by EMUI based on Android.
Following its announcement last week of the Harmony OS 2.0 beta for smartphones, Huawei showed the press in China a version similar to what can be seen in EMUI, the company’s Android-based customization layer. However, and as explained in ItHome, those images only showed the capabilities of the system.
Company personnel have confirmed to the aforementioned media that the official version of Harmony OS for smartphones has a different interface design. “In the past five years, Huawei’s software team has replaced most of the core parts of Android,” said Wang Chenglu, president of the Consumer Software business.
Huawei released last week the Harmony OS 2.0 beta in China, a version focused on developers with P40, P40 Pro, Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro and MatePad Pro devices.
Following the company’s plans, in April 2021 official support for computers up to 4GB will be added and already in October 2021 it will be available for all devices, including those with more than 4GB of RAM.
