Following the EMUI 11 shell, Huawei presented a new version of its proprietary operating system – HarmonyOS 2.0 at HDC 2020.
The OS received an updated software bus, a new data management process, and improved security. In addition, the developers implemented an adaptive UX structure into the software. Also, like the first version, HarmonyOS 2.0 has received open source and support for universal applications that can be opened on any type of device.
The system is already available for the test from today, but so far only for devices with RAM from 128 KB to 128 MB. That is, these are smart TVs, wearable electronics, smart speakers, car systems, etc. HarmonyOS 2.0 test version for smartphones will be released in December. In early 2021, support will be added for phones with up to 4 GB of RAM, and at the end of 2021 from 4 GB.
Recall that the first version of HarmonyOS was shown last year. Now it is installed on some Huawei and Honor TVs. Unfortunately, they are only sold in China.
