Anonymous, 28 Oct 2020Do not forget the Blackberry OS where it was once very popular but diminished almost immediate... moreBlackberry os and especially blackberry 10 wasn't popular at all even if it worked very well. Lack of support from app developers killed it along with weak promo from bb. Blackberry was on decline for years when they launched it
Let's see if Huawei can successfully bring a third OS to the market or will flop like many who tried before anyways it will be interesting to watch
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2020It is apparently based on a microkernel (like Windows) and not a monolithic kernel (like Linux... moreWhat is the point of them having their own OS if its just going to be compatible with Android apps?

I think this might happen as well with Huawei after the hype is over of having a new OS.
Just hope we can have custom roms like with Android exCyanogen-LineageOS as Opensource.
I have a Doubt, are the apps still going to be based on old Java or all new Apps?
i am with huawei, will definitely switch to hongmeng Os with my huawei p30 pro
Huawei repeatedly changing tune and flip-flopping...long ago they said Harmony is 60% faster than Android, that they have faster compilers, etc etc...
Fact is, Hongmeng is vaporware at this point. If they find it hard to sell phones without Google apps, imagine how much harder it would be to launch a phone with an entirely different OS. Good luck, that's all I can say...prove us wrong.

Its still android with chongmeng skin ui.It is apparently based on a microkernel (like Windows) and not a monolithic kernel (like Linux/Android). But it's also meant to be compatible with Android apps. There is some software wizardry going on.
You can have a look at the source code.

Huawei Lover, 28 Oct 2020if Harmony os is only a skin/launcher on top of android then i am so upset like emui, Miui, or... moreHarmony os is a completely different operating system, but it will feel similar to emui because this what tha company thinks the phone experience should feel like.
But it's no android, harmony os is able to be used on many different devices what will make a great seamless experience with the other harmony os devices.
In short they make there own ecosystem
It will interesting if Huawei can manage to get Harmony OS outside of China because they will try something that many tried and all of them failed and very hard: establish a third mobile OS... Windows Phone, Sailfish, Fire OS, Firefox OS, Tizen, etc, etc...
AnonD-920712, 28 Oct 2020at least wait until president election finished. If trump win, then huawei still got banned.
... moreUs as country and us companies losing a lot of millions dollars with that ban. Not only huawei is suffering.
Hope Biden wins he looks like a nicer guy and this ban was little too much. Messing in the highest technologies is a little too much for politicians.

If trump win, then huawei still got banned. ... moreIt is a trade war between the two countries, the ban will still continue regardless who will win the election. It is either Huawei will be the next HTC or they will have to settle in China to survive.
