For now, Huawei will still be able to use the Android operating system to power its smartphones, certain features, such as Google Maps and YouTube, will be blocked on future Smartphones.

Somewhat-similar to Google's Fuchsia, HarmonyOS is a microkernel-based, distributed operating system that's created to provide a seamless experience across not just smartphone but also things like smartwatches, smart screens, in-vehicle systems and smart speakers.

They were also told that the new Mate 30 will sport Huawei's new Kirin 990 (hardly a surprise) and that one of the main features of the new chipset will be an increased battery efficiency.

The existence of this feature in Harmony OS is evidence that Harmony OS is only an additional layer of Android, the experts believe.

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has already launched its operating system called HongmengOS - or HarmonyOS in English. There is also a view that Harmony may not serve as a separate and stand-alone OS like Apple's iOS, and that it could instead be used as an additional layer on top of Android in order to provide customized services for Huawei product users. HarmonyOS, for those of you who are wondering, is Huawei's very own OS. However, the modified and redistributed version also became open source.

The Huawei P20, P30, and Mate 20 all featured breathtaking gradient colour designs. The display may also have a wide notch just like the Mate 20 Pro as hinted by previous rumors about the Mate 30 Pro. He added that HarmonyOS could scale across different devices and mobile operating system with no hassle at all. The presence of Deterministic Latency Engine will improve the overall performance of the operating system. HongMeng is undergoing development to be used across the Internet-of-Things devices.

It's early days for HarmonyOS so it's not quite clear how widely adopted the platform will be among software developers.

Chinese tech giant Huawei has officially launched its long-awaited in-house operating system.

The Harmony Operating System can be installed on a range of devices which includes; IOT Devices, Smartphones, Wearables, and In-Car entertainment systems.
