Huawei is set to release HarmonyOS Next, the latest version of its own operating system. Initially, it was believed that HarmonyOS Next would not support applications built for Android, but this claim was later denied by the company. The US ban on Huawei in 2019 prompted the development of HarmonyOS as an alternative to Google services under Android.
The original HarmonyOS is based on the open-source version of the Android operating system and fully supports applications built for Android. However, due to current restrictions, Huawei users outside China will continue to use Android-based applications with the EMUI operating system.
HarmonyOS 4 has already been installed on more than 100 million devices in a short period of time. It was announced at the Huawei Developers Conference 2023 that a new version of HarmonyOS called HarmonyOS Next will be released in 2024. Despite this announcement, there are still false rumors circulating about the support of Android applications on Huawei devices.
It’s important to note that there are unrelated and random game forum content mixed in with the Huawei news, so it’s essential to keep the information focused on the topic at hand to avoid confusion.
