Huawei is set to release the next version of its own operating system, HarmonyOS Next. Initially, it was claimed that this new version would not support applications made for Android, but this claim was later denied by the company. The ban on Huawei by the US in 2019 led to the development of HarmonyOS as an alternative to Android.
HarmonyOS is an operating system developed specifically for the Internet of Everything (IoE) era. It provides a shared language for smart and connected features on different devices. The original HarmonyOS was based on the open source version of the Android operating system and fully supports applications made for Android. Currently, there are no plans to distribute HarmonyOS outside of China, so Huawei users outside China will continue to use Android-based applications with the EMUI operating system.
However, it has been announced at the Huawei Developers Conference 2023 that a new version of HarmonyOS called HarmonyOS Next will be released in 2024. There have also been false rumors circulating about the support of Android applications on Huawei devices, but it has been confirmed that Android applications will continue to be fully supported on devices sold outside China.
In addition to this information, there seems to be unrelated and random game forum content mixed in with the Huawei news. To avoid confusion, it’s important to keep the focus on the topic at hand.
