Huawei is preparing to release HarmonyOS Next, the latest version of its own operating system. Initially, it was reported that HarmonyOS Next would not support applications designed for Android, but this claim was later denied by the company. The ban on Huawei by the US in 2019 forced the brand to develop its own operating system as it could no longer use Google services under Android.
HarmonyOS, which was developed for the Internet of Everything (IoE) era, provides a shared language for smart and connected features across different devices. The original HarmonyOS was based on the open-source version of the Android operating system and fully supports applications made for Android. However, currently, there are no plans to distribute HarmonyOS outside of China, so Huawei users outside of China will continue to use Android-based applications with EMUI operating system as usual.
The new version of HarmonyOS called HarmonyOS Next is expected to be released in 2024. There have been false rumors circulating about the support of Android applications on Huawei devices, but it’s important to note that Android applications will continue to be fully supported on devices sold outside China.
There seems to be some unrelated and random game forum content mixed in with the Huawei news. It’s crucial to keep the information focused on the topic at hand to avoid confusion for readers.
