Huawei Mate 30 & Mate 30 Pro to launch on this date

Huawei, a famous Chinese telecom, announced the unveiling of its own operating system in Dongguan, China. Previously it was said that Huawei Mate 30 5G smartphone will launch by the end of this year. Huawei did confirm that Android's EMUI 9 will roll out to these devices. Huawei plans to deploy this OS to smart televisions, smartphones and tablets but it will start with a product called the Honor Smart Screen.

Some industry experts have expressed doubts about the originality and innovation in Harmony.

According to Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei consumer business, People find it challenging to pronounce Hongmeng - its original name, hence the use of the English name "Harmony".

The look and design of the new series will be the same as the Huawei P30 series.

Huawei also say that "to encourage broader adoption" they'll be looking to release HarmonyOS as an open-source platform and cultivate the kind of open-source community that allows them to support more in-depth collaboration with developers.

HarmonyOS will be incorporated with Huawei's connected speakers and Headphones by 2021.

Huawei watches and bracelets will be equipped with Harmony operating system by 2020.


While this is quite a bit of information for an unreleased smartphone, we'll wait for the official Huawei announcement before talking about it further.

Huawei stepped up focus on developing a proprietary OS as it faced the threat of losing access to US technologies amid the Sino-US trade conflicts. He added that HarmonyOS could scale across different devices and mobile operating system with no hassle at all.

"HarmonyOS is the first OS to use formal verification in device TEE, significantly improving security".

Harmony is similar to Fuchsia, which enables developers to come up with a single app to run on all devices. Huawei claimed that its OS will be faster than competing platforms, reducing the response latency of apps by a quarter.

At the launch event, Huawei executives stressed that Harmony will play an important role in cross-device operations and control in the IoT era.

It stated that though slim, the Mate X's body houses four sets of 5G antennae, and that users could enjoy quality 5G connectivity and high volume data transmission anywhere, enabling them to benefit from 5G's high quality connectivity and get more done.
