Then how is it that Mate Pad Pro is on the list although it has the same CPU ? Anyway, I am not in a hurry since my P40 Pro is collecting dust. I am just very curious to see how Harmony is and how it runs.

There is no way on Earth that HarmonyOS isn’t an “AOSP” based OS, Simply nobody is interested in developing and creating apps from the scratch for a whole new platform while the existence of Play store and Apple store.

Phone software is not that complicated when you have enough resources. And Chinese do have enough money and talents to do it. So it can be good. Look, Russians bought Jolla so they inherited very mature Sailfish OS, china has Harmony… only the rest of the world got stuck with Android controlled by Google.

Russian-controlled Sailfish (or Aurora), Chinese-controlled Harmony or Google-controlled Android?

Nah. I want fully working Linux based phone. I don’t like that Axis of Evil.

https://arstechnica.co… morePeople are easily fooled. I remember the OxygenOS debacle some years back. OnePlus fanboys would have you believe that it is a new OS. In fact it was reskinned android.

HarmonyOS is AOSP (android sans Google services) , yet look at all the fanboys that are going to tricked by such a simple scam.

It’s impossible to build a new OS that deep in an OS cycle. Late 00s was the time to do that and even then it was tough (both MS and Nokia failed in that). 1.5 decade after the fact you need to convince all the 3rd parties to follow you or else your OS will die.

That’s why we only have two OSes w widespread use on desktop computing as well (the time to build it was early/mid 80s, those who missed that train , missed it all).

HarmonyOS would be android. It *has to* be (that).

Anonymous, 30 May 2021this is the most hilarious and delusional comment section I’ve ever seen on this site, an… moreIf you go back to even the HarmonyOS 1.0 HDC, they made it crystal clear that HarmonyOS was a multi kernel system with a kernel abstraction layer.

It was designed with IoT in mind.

With the jump to higher memory requirements (vers. 2.0) phones will be supported.

People are confusing HarmonyOS (an all round system) with HarmonyOS for phones and tablets.

AOSP was mentioned by Huawei itself – last year! But that fell on deaf ears.

Some devices will fall back onto an AOSP base for compatibility reasons. That makes sense.

This is at a low level. At a higher level, there are over 15,000 api’s to work with.

Whichever you look at it, it’s more than Android.

I would suggest people wait for 2nd June and see what is presented. If anyone can’t wait, it’s well worth sitting through the three hour HDC keynote from September last year (with English language simultaneous translation) to get a good idea of where they are going. Much of what was presented isn’t even possible on ‘Android’ today.

When was the last time you saw an app running on two devices at the same time (watch the educational demo from HDC)?

They also presented a scenario where a home router could come under attack but the router would be able to pull pooled resources of of other HarmonyOS devices to defend itself in real time. In that case they implied the NPU from a nearby TV could be used.

So, while AOSP may well be part of HarmonyOS at some level, calling it ‘Android’ , doesn’t make much sense at this point in time.

How about trying to understand what they are really trying to achieve and see what has been released in their repos so far? Android framework is entirely *optional* for OpenHarmony 2.0 and developers can choose not to have one – something that would never be possible if it was indeed based on Android.

Nobody can force you. It’s very easy to say they are copy from others. What’s your bases or evidences? Huawei is a powerful tech company. They invested a lot on R&D. Go check how many millions of IP it has registered. They contributed to the open android system. Now it’s time to break free of the suppression from the “Freedom” country.

this is the most hilarious and delusional comment section I’ve ever seen on this site, and that’s saying a lot

1. huawei fanboys insisting till their final breath that harmonyos isn’t a full fledged copy of Android despite so much evidence saying otherwise

2. “tHiS iS a GooD anD ReAsonAble fiRst SteP foR huawei, hOw anD whY dO yOu eXpEcT tHeM tO dO sTH cOmpleTely nEw in the BeGinniNg” gee idk maybe it’s because huawei has boldly claimed themselves on multiple occasions that this will be a “completely new” os

3. loads of tankies or something, “bye google, fb and NSA, bye USA , now instead we backdoor and I sell my soul to CPC, much safer and better no.1 super best country and party”

also look at that “m pencil” (wow so original design, too) and “matepad”

man they sure are shameless when it comes to copying, nothing has changed

Nick Tegrataker, 30 May 2021They have recently released two versions of OpenHarmony 2.0 – one with Android subsystem, one … moreIf you are right about the two versions, the one with android on it is for people that still want to use Android apps which is not a bad thing. Android is an open system, every company out can contribute to the system. I believe Huawei contributed a lot to android too with millions of millions of their own IP. Many people have been using Android that’s already with Huawei technology on it. You just didn’t realize it. Now they are building their own OS. I guess a lot of the stuffs on the os are pretty familiar that’s already using on Android.
