HarmonyOS: what you need to know about Huawei’s new operating system


Originally announced in August 2019, HarmonyOS is about to hit smartphones and tablets for the first time as the major version 2.0 update rolls out. According to rumors, the devices and OS could land on June 2.

HarmonyOS is related to, but not exactly the same as, the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), replacements to Google’s apps that the company is working on in an effort to work pass the Huawei ban. These are apps that would go on its smartphones like the Huawei P40 or Mate 40, and there’s certainly a ticking clock element in Huawei resuscitating its phone division before people associate it too much with the ban from Google apps.
