What is HarmonyOS and why is it needed: a simple explanation
Huawei, which is under the yoke of US sanctions, yesterday introduced its proprietary operating system HarmonyOS 2.0 for various smart devices: from smartphones and smart watches to TVs and computers. The company is pursuing the idea of creating a single platform or "super smartphone" that will connect all devices from the same ecosystem.
For example, starting a video call on a smartphone, it can be transferred to a tablet or TV, and smart watches can receive information about the temperature in the refrigerator. In fact, users will be able to transfer tasks started on one of the devices to other gadgets.
The company claims that HarmonyOS 2.0 is faster than Android, lightweight, and can be installed on devices with as little as 128KB of memory. It will allow you to keep various applications in the background for longer, and even after years it will not “lag” and “stupid”.
In order to explain to you in a simple and accessible language what HarmonyOS is, what the company is pursuing and what can come out of all this, we have recorded a separate video dedicated to the operating system. Happy viewing!
