Huawei will begin rolling out harmony’s operating system in specific smartphone models from this evening, allowing users to change the current operating system based mainly on google’s android platform.
The use of harmony means that the company will not remain entirely dependent on android. The company is looking to recover from sanctions imposed by the united states. Which has hampered its phone production activity.
USA Sanctions prevent alphabet group google from providing new Huawei models with technical support or allowing it access to google’s mobile service, on which most applications rely on android.
The technology community has closely followed the development of harmony since the former u.s. President Donald trump’s administration launched a fierce campaign in 2018 to block Huawei’s ambitions, which the united states accused of spying
So far, no company has succeeded in ending the dual monopoly of mobile operating systems, with Microsoft’s blackberry, Microsoft’s window iPhone and amazon’s fire software withdrawing from the battlefield.
Huawei, the world’s number one supplier of communications station equipment and other network equipment, entered the mobile phone in 2003 using android. It became one of the three largest smartphone manufacturers globally, Korean Samsung and apple in the united states, supported by Chinese demand and sales in emerging markets.
But u.s. Sanctions that prevented the company from obtaining the necessary components have left the Chinese group’s mobile phone sector uncertain.
According to analysts, Huawei’s biggest challenge now is apps and persuading enough developers to re-adapt their apps and other content to harmonise, with consumers continuing to buy Huawei phones.
Huawei officially announced which mobile phones will remain updated to the new version of the Android 7.0 Nougat through emui interface 5. Specifically. There will be six models that will receive an update. Six of them were confirmed at this time, although more could happen. They include Huawei Mate 8 and P9.
Huawei Mate 9 with EMUI 5.0
First of all, we should talk about Huawei Mate 9, which you won’t see on this list. If you have the latest phone from Huawei or plan to buy it, in addition to any of its variables, you will not receive the update to Android 7.0. It already comes with this new version. That’s why it didn’t appear on that list. Because you already have a fixed program based on this version.
Huawei has announced which smartphones the company will update to the new version of the operating system, which has already remained confirmed. It will be the Huawei P9, in addition to the two variants, the P9 Plus. And the Huawei P9 Lite is excellent news for the latter because it is a reasonably medium-range smartphone. In addition, they will also update the Huawei Nova and Nova Plus profiles. These phones were allegedly the original Google Pixel before Huawei knew Google would not finally include the manufacturer’s brand on the device. Last but not least, we will also have Huawei Mate 8, the only one released in the previous year.
As for when they receive the new update, it seems that the first to update and get a trial or trial version are Huawei Mate 8 and Huawei P9. Anyway, it won’t be until next year when they receive this update. However, it will be in the first quarter when all these phones are updated.
And the Others?
Now it’s worth asking what will happen to other mobile phones like Huawei Mate 7, Mate S and P8. Hopefully, these smartphones were on the list to receive the update, but they are not at the moment. One of emui 5’s characteristics is that it remains designed to learn from the user. And make it easier to navigate all the options and settings in the list. The user learning system is not simple. It is probably the biggest problem with integrating into mobile phones before Mate 8, which was the first to own the company’s next-generation processors. However, we cannot rule out the update in powerful models such as Huawei Mate 7, Mate S or P8, which launched only last year.
Huawei aims to be an alternative to android and offers harmony as an internet of things platform. And hopes to be a way to connect other devices such as computers, smartwatches, cars, and home appliances.
The company unveiled new devices using harmony’s operating system, including tablets, and smartwatches. And smartpens, during a live broadcast from the company’s headquarters in Shenzhen, China, today.
According to a tengu, Huawei’s head of software for the Huawei user business group. The company aims to have the new system loaded with 200 million smartphones. From its phones and 100 million phones belonging to other companies by the end of the year.
