A few days ago, Huawei held the 2020 Developer Conference and released Harmony OS 2.0. After the meeting, Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei’s Software Department, and Yang Haisong, Vice President of Huawei’s Software Department, gave an interview.
Speaking of the Harmony OS 2.0 plan, Yang Haisong said that the Beta version for the smartphones will be available to the developers in December this year.
‘Just as Wang Bo announced today, our code warehouse on the official website and Code Cloud has been completely open to the public. You can already see all the open-source codes and related materials of our Harmony OS on the Internet. In the future Category loading refers to the categories covered by equipment loading. This will be our very important focus in the future.’
Yang Haisong revealed that in a year, Huawei’s own equipment running on the Harmony OS will exceed 100 million.
Wang Chenglu said that installing the Harmony OS system does not need to be tailored. You only need to have the corresponding hardware parameters and you can install it.
Regarding the hardware requirements, Wang Chenglu said that installing Harmony OS requires as little as 128KB of RAM.
