Richard Yu, chief executive officer of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, said at the conference “There are some objectives behind the introduction of this new operating system. Today, we are entering a period where consumers expect users to have an operating system that runs across all types of devices. To meet this customer expectation, we have developed an operating system that is equipped with ‘cross platform’ capabilities. This operating system is designed to meet customer needs across all types of devices with fast and robust security.
“These were the goals we created for Harmony OS,” said Richard Yu. Harmony OS is radically different from Android and iOS. It is a micro circle-based distributed operating system that will work seamlessly across all types of devices. It has a reliable and secure architecture. You will once create applications for this operating system, after which those applications will run smoothly on all types of devices.
Traditionally, the new operating system is marketed with new types of devices. 10 years ago, Huawei dreamed of a future in which artificial intelligence would be integrated in every aspect of our lives in a consistent and seamless way. This operating system is the interpretation of this dream. It is a very lightweight composite operating system but has powerful functionality. Initially, it will be used in smart devices such as smart watches, smart screens, vehicle systems and smart speakers. Through its operating system, Huawei is committed to providing a integrated and shared ecosystem for all devices.
Through this operating system, users will have a great experience with shared communication platforms, distributed data management, distributed task scheduling and virtual prefers. Developing applications for Harmony OS will not have to worry about underwriting technology for distributed applications. With the advent of this operating system, it will be easier to create distributed applications that have never been easier. The applications that will be developed for this operating system will run on all devices with the same flow and connectivity.
- Harmony OS will also eliminate the challenges facing performance through its Deterministic Latency Engine and High Performance Enterprise Communications (IPC). Both of these features will reduce the latency response of applications by 25.7 percent and make the devices work faster. IPC will make this operating system 5 times more efficient than current operating systems.
Harmony OS uses an entirely new micro circulation design, which comes with features like robust security and low latency. It is designed to simplify kernel functions so that the operating system will work evenly and optimally on most devices.
At the conference today, Harmony OS 1.0 was introduced, which will be used in the company’s smart screen products later this year. Over the next three years, its scope will be expanded to other smart devices ‘wearable,s’, Huawei Vision and head units and more.
The success of Harmony OS depends on the dynamic ecosystem of developers and applications. So to encourage developers, Huawei will make Harmony OS an open source platform internationally. The company will also set up an open source foundation and an open source community will be created to help collaborate among developers. These initiatives give Harmony OS many avenues for everyone involved with the market, including consumers, merchants and developers. Will bring
“We believe Harmony will give the OS a new life and improve the ecosystem,” said Richard Yu. Our goal is to bring consumers a diverse experience. We invite developers from all over the world to come and join us in the mission of developing this new ecosystem. ”
