Huawei is seemingly planning to push its HarmonyOS to the market sooner and it could happen with the launch of P40 next spring. This has been mentioned by the CEO of the company himself. In a media interview, Richard Yu said that the company will start using its HarmanyOS for smartphones if the situation with the United States doesn’t change. Well, it was imperative that Huawei made itself ready for any unfavorable future and this decision is an outcome of those foresees that it can’t abandon.
Last month, it was uttered that the HarmonyOS will not be released to the smartphones this year. And the interview confirms that the HarmonyOS which happens to be a single OS that covers everything is built for the smartphones as well and it will debut with Huawei P40. Well, the latest phone from the P-series will only be launched next year, so what the company said previously is true as well.
Yu also revealed that the company’s own App Store named “App Gallery” and “Huawei Mobile Services” will replace Google’s services.
Huawei announced its own operating system called the HarmonyOS earlier last month at Huawei Developer Conference 2019 (CDC) as an alternative to Android. The OS has been engineered to communicate openly regardless of the device which means it is capable of running on a wide range of devices including smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, smart speakers vehicles, and more.
Huawei launches its new P-series in the spring of every year, so we assume P40 to come next year somewhere in March.
