Huawei reveals updated HarmonyOS operating system

The Chinese tech giant Huawei unveiled the latest version of its self-developed HarmonyOS operating system today at the Huawei Developer Conference 2020 in Dongguan, Guangdong Province. It will be pre-installed on all Huawei phones from next year and will also be offered to other manufacturers as a substitute to Android.

The operating system will enable all products to connect to others seamlessly and is regarded as a strong competitor to Google’s Android. The development is considered to be Huawei’s indirect response to the expansion of the Trump administration’s restrictions on the tech company. September 15 will be the deadline for cutting off the supply of chipsets to Huawei from the US which poses a severe threat to Huawei’s global supply chain.
