Huawei to replace Windows 10 with HarmonyOS 2.0 in its PCs

Last year, the US Department of Commerce blacklisted Huawei. After that, the company announced the development of its OS – HarmonyOS. Now, we know that Huawei plans to release computers with its own operating system.

Huawei to replace Windows 10 with HarmonyOS 2.0 in its PCs

According to Huaweicentral, referring to an insider post in the Chinese social network Weibo, computers with HarmonyOS 2.0 can enter the company’s home market. Devices will also run on Kunpeng processors.

An insider reports that several provinces, cities, and regions are already helping Huawei to set up PC supply chains.

Recall that Huawei already reported that HarmonyOS will be a cross-platform solution. This means that the operating system can be flexibly deployed on different devices including smartwatches, personal computers, cars, and others.

What about smartphones?

Despite the problems associated with the inability to work with Google, Huawei continues to launch new flagship smartphones with Android OS and Huawei mobile services instead of Google mobile services. The company keeps developing its own AppGallery application store and the HarmonyOS operating system, while not forgetting to release full-fledged flagships. But there are times when its representatives are “a little” odd – for example, the head of Huawei said that the company will need “no more” 300 years to catch up with Google and Apple.

“Sales of devices on Android and Apple operating systems in the world are huge, and Huawei is late. It’s hard for consumers to accept other operating systems. Thus, the Huawei OS can take a long time to surpass Android and Apple, but no more than 300 years, ” said the CEO of the company Ren Zhengfei in an interview with Dragon Magazine.

These statements are frustrating for the employees and fans of the giant company. And it is more strange that it comes from the founder of the company.

According to Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei consumer business. HMS (Huawei mobile services) currently is in more than 170 countries and regions. With more than 400 million monthly active users and more than 1.3 million developers and partners. It is already second only to Google Android and Apple iOS, ranking the top three globally.

At present, Google Play has more than 2.1 million apps, while Huawei AppGalery currently has only 55,000 apps. In the short term, GMS’s leading position is undoubtedly difficult to shake, let alone replace Android with Hongmeng OS.

    All what writer care about is number of apps it seems! What’s the point in another billion worthless of apps on a store? We need a few thousands but QUALITY apps.. enough with clan of clash clones and candy crush-like games!

    But that is the problem. I inherited a P20 Pro and looked through the Huawei App Store and most of the apps are games. I tried a maps app and it was not anywhere near the quality of Google Maps.

    I personally think any competitor’s best bet, when not allowed to use Google apps is to use Linux directly for PC’s and pure Android for mobile devices to at least be binary compatible with the Apps that are available for those platforms. On the Android front Amazon has shown that what a Android without Google apps can be like. I’m quite happy with my Fire Tablet.

    It will not be long Huawei will be able to make sure that their phones can be useful for their users. D. Trump is forcing them to speed up their development and in the end it will hurt the American suppliers
