Huawei P40 will come with HarmonyOS in 2020, if Google services are not available

HarmonyOS could reach the market hand in hand with the Huawei P40, the next big flagship that the Chinese company will launch in spring next year. This is what Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's mobile division, said in a media interview with Xataka. It took place within the framework of IFA 2019, after the conference where they have presented their new processors Kirin 990.

Huawei P40

At the IFA 2019 exhibition, which is held these days in Germany and where Huawei brought a lot of new products, the executive director of the company Yu Chengdong was asked about further developments in the event that the services and applications of Google are still not available to Huawei.

Google cannot prohibit the use of the Huawei Android OS, as it is distributed within the framework of the Android Open Source Project, but Google services are of a different kind. Just their Huawei may be deprived: they say that Mate 30, debuting on September 19, will not receive licensed applications and services from Google because of American sanctions.

The answer, in general, could have been predicted, but from the lips of the CEO of Huawei it looks more powerful: in this case, the company's smartphones will be transferred to HarmonyOS, and the first model with its own OS Huawei may be P40, coming out next year.

Also, the top manager said that Huawei is considering the possibility of producing SoC Kirin not only for itself, but also to sell them to interested partners.

HarmonyOS will be compatible with Android

As we've told you, the idea is that HarmonyOS can be adapted to any screen but also to different development methods. It is based on a microkernel structure, which makes it much more versatile as it does not use a universal kernel for all devices, but smaller cores focused on different areas of the operating system.

In principle, a more compact kernel is achieved that is capable of running on a variety of platforms in an optimal way. This also allows, for example, root permissions not to be granted to external services, as is the case with Android for example. This means that, in principle, more security is offered to the user.

With all that inside, HarmonyOS will be able to read and run Android applications. But they also hope to develop the operating system so that in the future it can work with HTML5 applications. At the moment they keep the Android, Linux (LiteOS) and HarmonyOS Kernels separate, but hope to replace Linux with HarmonyOS in the future.

The company also stated that it is a lightweight operating system capable of operating on devices with reduced performance. For this they have the distributed architecture, which allows developers to make a single application and it is the operating system who decides how to display and run the app on each product.

HarmonyOS has a latency engine that prioritizes the execution of each task, thus making the IPC performance more efficient and improving the performance on the device. In other words, it will optimize apps in the best possible way for each type of device we use.

In any case, it's not all said yet, and it all depends now on what the U.S. government ultimately decides on the permissions of local companies to do business with Huawei. There is still a chance that everything will be clear and their mobiles will continue with Google Android, remaining HarmonyOS in a secondary system as I end up being Samsung's Tizen.
