Huawei has recently launched the HarmonyOS 2.0 and the mobile operating system will be available to a select number of devices. By installing HarmonyOS, we can replace the current EMUI-on-Android setup.
At the current moment, the option is only available in China and but it is soon expanding to different regions. Even if the OS has still not reached your region users can always simply change their location virtually and get the update.
Users can avail of the new HarmonyOS by checking the ‘update screen’ where a button should appear for users to tap on. From this, it seems that the company is slowly rolling out the OS in order to ensure there are no issues or problems once it is properly deployed and ready to use.
Moreover, the tech giant also cleared out a major legal hurdle where initially Hongmeng, the Chinese name of HarmonyOS, was a trademark of Huizhou Qibei Technology, so the Chinese State Intellectual Property Authority (CSIPA) refused Huawei’s trademark application. But now the trademark has been transferred and the global launching of this OS is good to go.
HarmonyOS is a family of operating systems developed by Huawei. Unveiled on 9 August 2019, it was described as being a microkernel-based, distributed, the embedded operating system for the Internet of Things devices.
