Unlock the bootloader and release the kernel source and we'll see. Not before.
They will surely get success after all the chinese big players (BBK, Xiaomi, Lenovo etc) use Harmony OS.
how much could you pay us developers in order for us to move to your platform?
As long as we are not able to install 10gb games on mobile OS, I see there is no need for another new player
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2020I call BS... If App Gallery is so survivable, which is not, as you still need to sideload apps... moreIn my country there is apps for every bank, and every app can be installed. Give support to players like Huawei, just to break monopol.
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2020I'm really regretting buying their Nova 3i. Just a few days after it was released, they... moreFor Kiron 710 8x was the real sweet spot and honor play was their for 970.
After that they hardly did any significant discount with value.
In 2 years (thats the time i have to change my phones), my second phone will be huawei. Been itching for the nova 7 but i want to try their new os.
Im not really a geek, but its good to try the newos competitor.

Remember when Android was released and every single manufacturer customized it cause it was raw and unpolished? Now some people crave for "Stock Android". It all boils down to software and more adoption. Huawei never got to the point of selling their Kirin chips, even though they were seriously considering it. For their system to grow, it should not be limited to Huawei/Honor devices only. They really need partnerships with OEMs to prove that their system is there to stay.
Jolla, 07 Sep 2020Food for thought - You mentioned PRISM, Boundless informant etc, all systems that the US uses.... moreAll systems are opaque whether democracy or dictatorship. In democracy they make noise once alternative spying becomes available in dictatorship you always under unknown situation. Certainly democracy in paper is good but Chinna had progressed soo far under dictatorship. May be this is time they get some relaxation.
RR, 07 Sep 2020Microsoft was even bigger then Huawei at the time when they tried to create their own OS and w... moreTo be fair Microsoft quickly gave up and never attempted to gain control over mobile OS market! It seems like a deliberate strategy to tank Nokia and also Ballmer strategy did not work and Sathya Nadella was more a software & service (Cloud) centric person. I used their Lumina 950XL which was a great mobile with great display, camera etc... getting App developers was not a difficult than today with the consolidated position. Nokia didn't have the advanced tech patents like Huawei for it to survive the hardware game where China is ahead many many years with their expertise manufacturing for Western markets.
Mr A, 07 Sep 2020I am only interested if it's purely new OS. no relation with android. You stole my words! Just look at my other comment
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2020who will buy that instead of android & ios ?!!!It is enough for Huawei if Chuna alone buys
This is very much needed, hope they are not offshoot of Android fork. It must have is own Kernal and its own home grown subsystems. Hope it is

Huawei does a pretty PR job, few articles has being silent and pull off overnight, as well, it also a common tactic for them to pay to get away things. Nevermind if backdoor in Hawei exist or not, they simply retrieve data as they please. And it part of the country's legislation, if the government want, they have to comply, no question ask. You got to be pretty naive too think it only for domestic population. If you want a scenario: https://www.politico.eu/article/huawei-germany-court-case-privacy/
All countries, vendors collect data. But with China, it zero transparency, zero possibilities of action with no lines of border.
Alex 94, 07 Sep 2020As a European I will use that App gallery all day. Every app can be installed in 5 min.I call BS... If App Gallery is so survivable, which is not, as you still need to sideload apps like Facebook, Google, Whatsapp, etc. Not to mention it almost (actually zero that I see) contain no local apps (banks, municipality, etc). Huawei re-release the P30 with Android GMS (last handset that Huawei still have license agreement) in Europe for a reason, if Huawei App is so hot, they wouldn't need to do that.
Personally I love how some pretend they live in the US / EU, which clearly, they don't.
We all need a Harmony, not bans. Not sure if it will be better than android though, we need OS independent from any country for it to work forever...

The second thing is you said what can china do with your information. Tell me what is google doing with the information they are collecting. The answer is we don't know for what or for why, just that there may be a future use for it which they have not disclosed to anyone.
