We already know about Huawei’s Harmony OS, also known as Hongmeng OS, but the major Chinese OEM has yet to make a big announcement. It is almost ready for a wider launch, especially now that the public knows the Huawei MATE X2. The company’s new foldable phone will run on Hongmeng and not Android. The HarmonyOS operating system will be released in April. That’s roughly two months from today, so we can expect the finishing touches to be put in place. We believe Huawei is already on HarmonyOS 2.0, as we have seen the beta version before.
The Huawei Mate X2 will work with Harmony OS. Some people will say that it’s actually just Android, but Huawei won’t agree. A few weeks ago, we shared that the HarmonyOS 2.0 beta was ready for the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G and Huawei P30.
As for the Huawei P50 Pro, it can run on EMUI with Android 11 in addition to Harmony. Many people say that the Huawei Harmony operating system is still based on the Android operating system. The Hongmeng OS will be widely used this year not only on smartphones, but also on other smart devices such as the Honor Vision Smart TV.
Hongmeng operating system availability
Huawei announced the Harmony operating system, also known as the Hongmeng operating system, in 2019. Since we know that Huawei’s situation is not going to change anytime soon and the company knows this, the OEM must make major adjustments. We will know more about HarmonyOS next April 2021. Watch out for the HUAWEI Mate X2 with Hongmeng OS.
