In the face of Huawei’s current problems with obtaining Google certification, the Chinese company may be saved by the premiere of its own operating system, on which the company has been working for a long time. What’s more, the latest reports say that we may witness the debut of HarmonyOS in a mobile version much earlier than we had anticipated – with the premiere of Huawei P40.
A week ago, Ren Zhengfei openly admitted that HarmonyOS’ debut would not take place as soon as he could have wished. According to his “careful calculations”, it would appear on mobile devices in 2-3 years. Although he clearly indicated that such a long time is because he simply doesn’t want to put additional pressure on the team that is working to create it. Well – it seems that the pressure is already on, as we find very interesting reports about the upcoming Huawei flagship – the P40 model.
HarmonyOS sooner than expected?
Huawei’s new flagship Huawei P40 could be the start of a process that has been talked about for several months now. Anonymous sources report that the new flagship, which traditionally should debut in the spring of next year, may have two operating systems – Android in Open Source version without Google services, and also Huawei ‘s own system, HarmonyOS. Of course, both OSs would be pre-installed, and the choice of one of them would be made on by a user after starting the device.
What’s more, both systems will be completely independent of each other. This means that each of them will have its own set of applications and files that we will not use in the second OS. In practice, we will have to deal with two smartphones in one housing.
Huawei P40 may bring a revolution
There is no denying that it would be surprising, but not impossible, to put together something like this. Since, in the beginning, HarmonyOS for sure will have some shortcomings, loading two systems may be the answer for users who are not entirely convinced with the new OS. For sure it will be interesting two see, how this will play out.
