The new OS is part of Huawei”s attempt to develop its own technologies from chips to software to reduce its reliance on U.S. firms amid an intensifying U.S.-China trade war. President Donald Trump said on Friday that the United States was not going to do business with Huawei but that could change if there was a trade deal.
Huawei had previously given little information about the software, fueling speculation about how quickly or effectively it could find an alternative to the Android system. “Harmony OS is completely different from Android and iOS,” said Richard Yu, head of Huawei”s consumer business group referring to operating systems developed by Alphabet Inc”s Google and Apple Inc. You can develop your apps once, then flexibly deploy them across a range of different devices,” he told a developers” conference held in Dongguan in southern China, where Huawei has built a lavish new campus modelled on European towns.
