Huawei plans to promote the deployment of its replacement operating system for Android, and its future mobiles could arrive with it inside.
What if the Huawei P40 were one of the last mobile phones of the brand to carry Android inside? Until not too long ago, it might seem unlikely, but since Huawei’s relationship with the United States does not improve, this idea could be a reality.
At least that is what we can read between the lines in the latest statements by Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer division, in which he states that its own operating system, HarmonyOS, could give life to the brand’s future mobiles.
Such information contradicts in a way with the latest statements of the company in this regard, in which it assured that HarmonyOS wasn’t here to replace Android. However, almost a year has passed since then, and his ideas may have changed.
Huawei will start launching new devices with HarmonyOS this year
In his statements, Yu states that The company’s next smartwatch will be one of the first with HarmonyOS inside. Upon arrival, the company plans start using this operating system as a platform for other products of different types, including smartphones and tablets.
If such a statement comes true, the idea would be to make HarmonyOS a global operating system, capable of empowering any type of smart device, thus covering the entirety of gadgets offered by the company, and completely replacing Android.
Beyond that, it is rumored with the possibility that the future Huawei Mate 40 that should arrive in September it will be the brand’s latest mobile with a Kirin processor, as the brand’s inability to work with American companies would force the brand to cease its development of new chips.
In fact, everything seems to indicate that HarmonyOS version 2.0 will be announced this September, coinciding with the arrival of Mate 40 itself.
