This morning, it is reported that Huawei has done a considerable change. Recently, the company has officially revealed (on EMUI Official Weibo) that the official Weibo of Huawei EMUI will be officially renamed to Harmony OS from now on.
The company has released a teaser in video and mentioned that a launch conference for the official version of Harmony OS for mobile phones and Huawei’s full-scene new product launch would be held on June 2.
Huawei released the first Harmony OS 2.0 Beta for mobile phones on December 18, 2020, and then successively released multiple versions, the latest version is Beta3 22.214.171.124.
Earlier, it was also reported that Huawei had registered an official Weibo named “Huawei HarmonyOS,” but it has not released any Weibo yet. The launch of the Harmony system also means that the EMUI system that Huawei has built for many years will come to an end (after almost eight years).
The vice president of Huawei’s consumer business AI and smart full-scenario business department (Yang Haisong) said in an interview that Harmony OS entirely open source. It will be open source for a 128MB-4GB device full-stack system this year, as planned.
“Mobile phone manufacturers from other parties are welcome to use the Harmony system to open source and build together. However, the “three-way phone ‘who ‘and ‘when ‘the obscurity system depends entirely on the manufacturer’s own commercial considerations.”
It is worth mentioning that Huawei introduced its EMUI on December 30, 2012, for the first time. The 1st version of EMUI 1.0 (aka Emotion UI 1.0) was based on Android 4.0. At the official launch, the company stated that this UI is the world’s most powerful and easy to use from the user’s point of view.
