It seems as if Huawei is very much focused on bringing about self reliance when it comes to its own consumer electronic devices – with these ranging from the likes of smartphones, to the likes of tablets as well as laptops. And now, with regards to what the latest reports suggest, it looks as if the process will go at an even rapid pace after the US government took upon itself to ban the company.
Soon after the ban imposed by the US government, Huawei had actually launched its very own operating system in the HarmonyOS. And now, the company is moving towards the idea of adopting the OS within its own devices – instead of Google’s Android.
Yu Chengdong, who happens to be the CEO of Huawei Consumer Business went on to confirm that the upcoming Huawei smartwatch will indeed feature with the HarmonyOS. Soon after this, the company will also start using this particular software on other products as well – including the likes of IoT, computers, tablets as well as smartphones. The executive from the company says that HarmonyOS will become the “worldwide operating system” in the future.
This was indeed announced at the very same event where the Chinese manufacturer went on to confirm its upcoming Mate 40 flagship smartphone. Huawei is likely to launch its Kirin 1000 flagship SoC on the fifth of September – at the IFA 2020.
The company has also said that it is quite possible that the upcoming Mate 40 could indeed be the very last smartphone from the manufacturer to feature with the Kirin-series flagship chipset – this due to the fact that the US imposed the ban on the company making it impossible for it to manufacture chips. Of course whether this will indeed be the case – only time can tell.
