Nova Watch: new smartwatch from Huawei coming soon


On January 11, 2021, Huawei applied to register a new Nova Watch trademark in China. It’s worth noting that Huawei’s Nova product line includes a series of low-cost flagships specifically designed for youth.

Since 2016, Huawei has been releasing smartphones of the Nova series. The company recently launched the new Nova 8 series, consisting of two models, the Nova 8 and Nova 8 Pro, which have received a number of new hardware and software solutions.

So far, there are no details about the Huawei Nova Watch smartwatch, but the source believes that it will be presented soon. In addition, Huawei is expected to introduce more smart products in the Nova lineup this year and beyond.

Huawei: HarmonyOS is not a copy of Android and iOS

Huawei’s operating system HongmengOS for China and HarmonyOS for the rest of the world is not a copy of either Android or iOS. One of Huawei’s top managers, Wang Chenglu, president of Huawei’s consumer software division, spoke about this in a speech to reporters.

HarmonyOS for smartphones is being considered as an alternative to Android. Earlier, there were information on the network that the first release of HarmonyOS 2.0 for smartphones will be based on Android.

According to Wang Chenglu, the company has been developing the operating system since May 2016. He also noted that HarmonyOS provides very broad “panoramic” opportunities for the future era of the “Internet of Things”. While, for example, iOS is created exclusively for smartphones.

HarmonyOS 2.0

The company has set a goal of 200 million HarmonyOS-based devices in 2021, and hopes for much greater results – 300-400 million.

The Chinese company is already testing HarmonyOS 2.0 on smartphones by selected developers and partners.
