Significantly, Huawei was banned in the US a few months ago. Only then did the company say that it would launch its operating system. Huawei was blacklisted by the US on charges of espionage and put on the entity list. After going into this list, companies do not have the license to do business with American companies. This case has been going on since December last year.

Ever since the US move, the company was expected to launch such an operating system. The company announced this operating system at the Huawei Developers Conference 2019. However, during this time the company made a presentation of its operating system in the Chinese language and no picture was used for it.
The company’s own operating system will not be present in smartphones and will only be used in its TVs and other products. It is being said that after 2-3 years it will be available for smartphones.
Some time ago the US administration had asked local companies not to do business with Huawei. After this, Google and its partner Android refused to update Huawei’s new mobile phone.
First update in Smartphone and Smart TV
Huawei’s HarmonyOS operating system will be first introduced in smart televisions and smartphones. After which it will be made available in another device, but this work will take 3 years.
Richard explained that the HarmonyOS operating system is single software, which can be easily used on smartphones, laptops and other devices with more memory and power, as well as smaller hardware.

Huawei will make Dev Kits available to its partners so that they can start building compatible apps immediately and speed up the process of implementing the new operating system.
