Huawei does not plan to release a smartphone running the Harmony operating system, at least until the end of this year. The company emphasized that the new OS is part of “Plan B,” necessary in the event of further pressure from the United States. But the watch on Harmony OS will still come out.
Harmony is called a possible alternative to Android, but Huawei does not want to abandon the developed ecosystem of Google. At the same time, Huawei is ready for such a turn of events, as a company representative previously stated in a conversation with Onliner reporters.
In connection with the intention to maintain the integrity of the market, Huawei does not plan in the near future to release a smartphone running Harmony, reports CNET. Therefore, the flagship Huawei Mate 30 Pro will be running an American OS. The transition to Harmony can take place “almost instantly,” but only at the very last moment – if there are no other options.
While the new platform is focused on other “smart” devices, including watches.
