Why do you think China is pressing to take over Taiwan as they did over Hong Kong?
TSMC si a gold mine if they can control it, they will control more 50% of chip fabbing in the world.
But western countries will not allow the take over and the intention might become a reason for war in the future…
Every dev that had their apps on Huawei’s Chinese store will have their apps working on “HarmonyOS” since Harmony is nothing but Android, just like EMUI.
Yes, and I’m sure they are all amazing apps… bragging about sheer numbers always indicates quality.
IpsDisplay, 1 hour agoI disagree as he himself does not understand what an android compatibility lair is
And he… moreAndroid is emulation ran atop Linux, there was an OS developed by Alibaba called YunOS at the time that swapped the default Linux kernel of android for another but it still ran the same Android atop, I owned a YunOS Meizu phone it felt just like Android.
There was also the Blackberry OS before they swapped to Android it was Linux based and could emulate Android apps, but had a lot of compatibility issues.
I am quite sure HarmonyOS is one of the former, like YunOS, so it’s just android, otherwise how can it run the apps?
4 million developers? What?
Am definitely going to buy the P50 pro it seems Harmony Os is promising and cool than expected

RealLifePhones, 2 hours agoeveryone should watch the video from the YT channel “The Friday Checkout” about Harm… moreI disagree as he himself does not understand what an android compatibility lair is
And he implies just like the other nonsense articles that Harmony OS is just some skinned version of Android SMH
How do you copy a microkernel makes no sense

USA is choking them and their mobile bu… moreHow is not getting any chips which is HARDWARE..
Gonna impact their SOFTWARE development
How does it NOT matter????????
It does NOT matter, if Huawei can’t get chips.
USA is choking them and their mobile business to death.
China is still years away from their own, in-China cutting edge mobile Soc fabbing. So far TSMC has been doing it for them, but due to US sanctions nobody is willing to fab the chips for them AND they can’t fab the chips themselves (not for some years still).
maybe it will take 2 years to optimize the Harmony OS, along with trusted security, good UI, and rich apps gallery.
And when the time comes, ill buy one of huawei flagship
Aqmani, 2 hours agoSo when Samsung and the other chinese companies will join the party ? I dont think samsung will join harmony OS. Other chinese company might be. But maybe for china market atm.
everyone should watch the video from the YT channel “The Friday Checkout” about Harmony OS. he sums it up really nicely and does generally great research on tech topics
Tonberry, 2 hours agoIt’s nice to see some new competition to Google and Apple. I wish Huawei all the best. It… moreit is android 10. any app that work in android will 100% work for harmony 2.0 .
It’s just an another android os will Huawei’s UI that is why there more apps and not data lost while installing this OS
maybe if google brings its application to HarmonyOs, maybe google can enter the china market through the application they made for HarmonyOs, but the possibility is difficult because it will not only deal with the government but also maybe google thinks it’s enough to compete with ios
As along a niantic are on board that will be brilliant
It’s nice to see some new competition to Google and Apple. I wish Huawei all the best. It’s probably a sleazy corporation, but so is Apple and Google.
I wonder if it’s possible to sideload Android apks on Harmony OS? Would something like F-Droid work on it?
Interesting, very interesting
