Huawei announces HarmonyOS, an Open Source Operating System for Smartphones


Today, at the Huawei Developer’s conference (HDC) 2019 event, Huawei announced the company’s very own operating system for smartphone, tablets and smart IoT devices such as smart speakers, computers, smartwatches, wireless earbuds, cars and more. The operating system is named as HarmonyOS and the CEO Richard Yu said that the brand’s very own operating system is the first microkernel-based distributed Operating System and it is created with four major building blocks to ensure that the new generation operating system is best suited for the digital world today.  As HarmonyOS operating system is based on a microkernel, it is more efficient to protect system security from the threats as compared to Android.

HarmonyOs was designed with four different technical features in order to deliver the best operating system to the consumers:

  1. Seamless

Harmony OS is the first-ever device OS with distributed architecture. The distributed architecture helps in providing a seamless experience across devices.  Applications built on this operating system can run on various different devices and will deliver a collaborative experience across all scenarios.

  1. Smooth

HarmonyOS will address the deterministic latency engine and high-performance Inter-Process Communication (IPC).

  1. Secure

HarmonyOS uses the brand-new microkernel design that offers more security and low latency.  The Harmony OS’s microkernel design uses formal verification methods to enhance and modify the security and trustworthiness from the ground up in a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE).

  1. Unified

harmony is powered by multi-device IDE, multi-language unified compilation, and a distributed architecture kit. It helps the operating system to adapt different screen layout controls and interactions and support both drag-and-drop control and preview-oriented visual programming. It also helps the developer to build apps that can run efficiently on multiple devices.

The Huawei CEO said that it is going to take a day or two to move from Google’s Android to the new HarmonyOS if needed. But for now, the brand will stick to Google’s platform. He also said that the Huawei can switch to HarmonyOS anytime if the devices face any issues regarding Android in the future.

To encourage broader adoption, the company will release the HarmonyOS as an open-source platform, worldwide. The operating system will bring new benefits to the users, equipment vendors, and developers.

The benefits are:


 It will bring a cohesive and powerful intelligent experience across all aspects of their lives.


 It will help them gain a first-mover advantage in the age of holistic intelligent experience, where 5G, AI, and IoT will see explosive growth.


It will enable developers to win over more users with less investment, and rapidly innovate services across all scenarios.
