Huawei has recently
announced details regarding the second version of HarmonyOS operating system
and its plans to gather wider options of devices like smartphones. Richard Yu,
the consumer business CEO was the one who made this announcement at Huawei’s developer
conference in Shenzhen, China.

According to the press
release, Huawei will produce a beta version of the HarmonyOS 2.0 SDK for
developers from now onwards. Earlier, it used to provide smartwatches, car head
units, and TVs. The smartphone version of the SDK is all set to be launched in
December 2020, and the phones run on HarmonyOS will be released sometime next

Apart from this, Huawei
is also starting its OpenHarmoney project that will permit developers to create
an open-source version of the OS. This will be somewhat similar to what the
AOSP is to Android. Until today, the project used to support devices that had
only 128MB of RAM, however, an expansion till 4GB has been made. It is also
being said that, by next October, the memory limit will be removed entirely.

This is a major project
for Huawei considering it’s being banned by every trade
and business option with US-based companies. The last we heard, Huawei was
compelled to ship its Android phones without Google services – damaging its already
crippling system.
