Huawei HarmonyOS

Huawei is planning to bring its home-grown operating system to the Global market. Android (One UI) and iOS are the main mobile operating systems globally, while HarmonyOS is quite popular despite its China exclusivity.

Due to US restrictions, Huawei lost access to key technologies: Android & semiconductors. Since then, the company has gradually developed the HarmonyOS operating system, but Global models still ship with Android-based EMUI.

Huawei is aware of the applications ecosystem, which is the biggest lead of Android and iOS. Compared to both giants, HarmonyOS lacks support for apps that will block it from expanding to Global consumers.

“We will work hard to build up the HarmonyOS app ecosystem in the China market first, then, from country to country, we will start gradually pushing it out to other parts of the world,” Huawei’s rotating chairman Erik Xu told attendees at its 21st Analyst Summit in Shenzhen.

HarmonyOS eyes Global expansion

Huawei’s Mate 60 Pro became the top-selling smartphone in the Chinese market. It has given me a severe headache Tim Cook as Apple’s iPhone displaced from the leading position in the world’s biggest smartphone market.

Beyond that, the company has recently unveiled the brand new Pura 70 series flagships. These devices bring advanced technologies and innovative cameras, which would boost the phone maker to grow further.

As people prefer buying Huawei flagships, the company intends to spend 2024 building up the native HarmonyOS app ecosystem. The goal is to bring the most popular smartphone apps to its self-developed operating system.

“Once we have these first 5,000 Android apps – and thousands of other apps – up and running on HarmonyOS, we will have a real HarmonyOS: a third mobile operating system for the world,” Xu said. That number could reach up to 1 million apps in the future, he claimed.

Will you switch to HarmonyOS?

HarmonyOS is neither based on Android nor iOS, it’s a different mobile OS. Huawei has finally decided to enter the Global market with proper application support. Would you prefer to buy a Huawei phone to experience the HarmonyOS if it becomes available?
