Huawei has unveiled a new operating system referred to as ‘HarmonyOS’, which they can immediately switch from Android if needed.

According to CNET, ‘Since being blacklisted in May by US President Donald Trump, Huawei has been rumoured to be working on its own operating system. We’ve heard that it’s called Hongmeng, that it’s designed to work across smart devices and power Huawei’s phones as an alternative to Google’s Android. On Friday Huawei revealed most of that to be true. At its Huawei Developer Conference (HDC), it made its new operating system official: HarmonyOS.’

‘Speaking at HDC, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group Richard Yu said HarmonyOS is ready to run on phones, but “for the consideration of partnership and ecosystem” Huawei won’t be using it on phones just yet. Yu did say, though, that if the company isn’t able to use Google’s Android operating system, HarmonyOS is ready to go.’

They have further stated says that HarmonyOS’ IPC performance is five times that of Google’s Fuchsia, and three times that of QNX.
