We see the introduction of HarmonyOS, Huawei’s own operating system last year. Since the introduction, we have been waiting on the OS will hit its smartphone division. It seems we may be seeing that soon as a report claims that Huawei is currently working on a smartphone which will be unveiled next year.
The rumor came from Richard Yu himself, the company’s CEO. According to him, a smartphone is already running the said, OS and will likely hit the market next year. This will be hitting the market along a number of new devices, including PCs, tablets, smart wearables and other IoT products.
There are reports that the first smartwatch running HarmonyOS is expected to debut at the end of this year. This will be followed by the company’s first phone with the in-house operating system, next year. This is not the first time we have heard rumors like this. Back in December 2019, there was a report of the company’s first smartphone running its own OS hitting the market as early as 2020.
Huawei’s own OS was introduced after the company was blacklisted by the US government during the trader war between the United State and the Chinese government. We have heard and seen a lot of buzz about the OS and we await what features will make it stand out against the likes of Android and iOS.
