The 2020 Huawei Developer Conference was held today in Songshan Lake, Dongguan. In this event, Huawei officially revealed the HarmonyOS 2.0. Along with the Huawei Smart Screens which already use the HarmonyOS, devices like tabs and watches will also get this.
As per Huawei’s word the new HarmonyOS 2.0 is the first distributed OS that is specially built for the full-scenario era. This will enable voice interaction through cross-device collaboration, both the large and small screen interaction, fast network distribution, adaptive UI, and visual/utterable AI.
As per the Huawei consumer business CEO, Yu Chengdong they will release the beta version for the large screens as well as for watches and cars, the mobile version will come in December. The Huawei smartphones will get its support in 2021.
In addition, the HarmonyOS 2.0 will be open source. All the developers will get emulators, SDK packages, and IDE tools. Lastly, the beta version of the OS for smartphones will be available to the Chinese developers in the beginning.
In this event, Yu Chengdong said that they donated the source code to China’s Open Source Foundation and also announced the roadmap: “From September 10, HarmonyOS will be open source for 128KB-128MB terminal devices such as large screens, watches, and automobiles, and in April 2021, it will be open source for 128MB-4GB of memory. The end devices are open source and will be open source for all devices over 4GB after October 2021”.
It’s very much clear that Huawei is trying its best to survive after the US ban. It cans make any deal with any US-based company, can’t use any US-own technology, and more. In addition, probably Samsung and LG are also coming backward to supply displays to Huawei.
