Huawei Harmony OS (English: HUAWEI HarmonyOS), on August 9, 2019, Huawei held the Huawei Developer Conference in Dongguan and officially released the operating system Harmony OS. Huawei Hongmeng system is a new distributed operating system for all scenarios, creating a world of interconnected super virtual terminals, organically linking people, devices, and scenarios, and connecting consumers with a variety of scenarios in their life. The intelligent terminal realizes fast discovery, fast connection, hardware mutual assistance, resource sharing, and provides the best scene experience with the most suitable equipment. On September 10, 2020, Huawei’s Hongmeng OS was upgraded to HarmonyOS 2.0. On April 22, 2021, Huawei’s HarmonyOS application development online experience website was launched. On May 18, Huawei announced that Huawei HiLink and Harmony OS will be unified into Hongmeng Zhilian. On the evening of June 2, 2021, Huawei officially released HarmonyOS 2 and a number of new products equipped with HarmonyOS 2.
“Hongmeng system is a brand-new and independent intelligent terminal operating system developed by Huawei for the era of the Internet of Everything. It is committed to providing a unified language for the intelligence, interconnection and collaboration of different devices.” From the official unified system introduction, we know that the Hongmeng system has three major characteristics: First, a set of operating systems can meet the needs of large and small devices, enabling unified OS and flexible deployment; second, devices equipped with the operating system are integrated at the system level. It is integrated to form a super terminal, so that the hardware capabilities of the device can be flexibly expanded, and hardware mutual assistance and resource sharing between devices are realized; the third is for developers, realizing one development and multi-end deployment.
The arrival of the Hongmeng system was smoother than expected. In the long-awaited, the official version of the Hongmeng system 2.0 successfully landed softly, which attracted a lot of praise. But it is worth noting that the success of the Hongmeng system’s debut is undoubtedly a double-edged sword. While bringing hope to the domestic operating system, it may also attract the siege of US companies again. 5G and chips are the best facts. In the face of Huawei’s rapid breakthrough in self-developed technology, US companies would rather lose 800 on their own than give up their “care” for Huawei. The Japanese semiconductor industry was once popular all over the world, but now it is declining day by day. The reasons behind it have to be thought-provoking, and it is worth remembering that lesson.
Today, the advent of Hongmeng’s system is a challenge to Android and iOS. There is a chance of success, but it should not be taken lightly. Google and Apple have been in the mobile operating system for many years, and both have absolute advantages in terms of technology and the number of installed machines. At this time, the Huawei Hongmeng system is just emerging, and one step is wrong, and it will be wrong. However, this does not mean that the Hongmeng system has no hope and room for survival.
With the official release of the Hongmeng operating system, Huawei and its partners like Yipu Zhilian have entered a state of “acceleration” in an all-round way. The goal that Huawei needs to accomplish this year is: the number of devices equipped with HarmonyOS needs to reach 300 million, of which Huawei’s own devices account for 200 million, and the number of ecological partners’ devices is 100 million. Judging from the current situation, Huawei’s plan to upgrade Hongmeng’s own equipment has received enthusiastic responses from consumers. Only 7 days after the official release, the number of users of the Hongmeng upgrade has exceeded 10 million. When the reporter visited Huawei’s flagship store in Shenzhen Zhuoyue Center, there was an endless stream of consumers who came to experience and consult the Hongmeng operating system.
In terms of Hongmeng ecological products, Huawei Mall recently launched the HarmonyOS Connect section to provide users with a one-stop shopping channel for Hongmeng ecological equipment. At present, the zone has launched more than 50 products in six categories, including household appliances, furniture and home improvement, sports health, personal health care, smart travel, and educational care, including air conditioners, soymilk machines, electric steamers, water purifiers, and water heaters. , cooking machine, cooking stove, camera, etc. Midea Group, Supor, Joyoung Co., Ltd., Wanhe Electric, NVC Lighting, Xiaokang Co., Ltd., 360 and other listed companies all have a variety of products equipped with HarmonyOS in the special area. Huawei previously predicted that there will be more than 40 mainstream brands in 2021, which will become the new entrance to the Hongmeng experience.
“There is a strong willingness to link in the industry, and there are still not enough types of Harmony Ecological products on the market. This is because to become a HarmonyOS Connect certification, most products are still in the certification stage.” partner said.
Since the launch of the Hongmeng system on June 2, it has become a hot topic among netizens, and the Huawei Pollen Club was once crowded by enthusiastic users.
A blogger revealed that Wang Chenglu, president of Huawei’s consumer BG, suddenly changed his tune at a recent seminar, saying that the target number of Hongmeng devices this year is 360 million. Previously, Huawei’s goal for this year has been 300 million units. It can be seen that Huawei, Huawei’s confidence in the Hongmeng system. And this confidence comes from many consumers.
It was learned from inside Huawei that by June 9, the upgraded users of the Hongmeng system had exceeded 10 million. This reflects the support and recognition of consumers for the Hongmeng system. With the support of a large number of users, Hongmeng is naturally more confident. Of course, Huawei’s confidence is also inseparable from the support of many manufacturers.
If Hongmeng wants to survive, it needs to establish a perfect ecology. Today, Hongmeng, which has just started, chooses to be compatible with Android applications, but this is just to achieve the transition. For Hongmeng, it must build its own ecosystem. This is inseparable from the support of developers. According to Wang Chenglu, there are currently 600,000 to 700,000 developers in Hongmeng; people hope to have 1.2 million developers this year, and 10 million developers in the year after.
It has been more than a week since the release of the Hongmeng mobile phone system, and the upgraded models have basically completed the update push. Most of the mobile phone users who have adapted to the Hongmeng system can’t wait to upgrade at the first time, and even paralyzed Huawei’s push service for a time.
Generally speaking, users who upgrade Hongmeng still mostly praise it. The first and most obvious improvement is the fluency of the system. Although the fluency of EMUI 11 has been greatly improved compared to the previous system, after the update, almost all users have refreshed their perception of “smooth” and “silky”.
This feature of the Hongmeng system doubles the life and work efficiency of users, so it is favored by consumers. For home appliance manufacturers and other manufacturers, the Hongmeng system has given them an ecological root among their complicated terminal devices. Let’s wait and see what achievements the Hongmeng system will have in the future.
