Huawei Mobiles has officially launched its own mobile operating system as Harmony OS gets official today on August 9, 2019 in China at Huawei Developer Conference.
In the past few months, the Chinese smartphone giant had troubles with US over the security concerns and clouds were looming over the future of Huawei as several companies have canceled their alliance with Huawei. But everything happens for good and it's a piece of good news for Huawei as you can say that Google has brought up its own competitor. So, it's Samsung Tizen OS and Huawei Harmony OS are the Google Android alternatives.
It's the first time that we are hearing about the Huawei's in-house operating system for mobile and tablets. The Huawei Harmony OS is developed by Fuchsia OS, a proprietary company of Huawei. It will be one name for many devices like smartphones, tablet-PCs, wearables, in-Car OS, and Smart TVs.

Soon, Huawei will unveil smartphones running the Harmony OS. Will be Huawei Mate 30? As of now, the Android will remain a go-to mobile OS for Huawei and Honor phones.
In a couple of years, we might know whether moving to Harmony OS was a good move or not!
Harmony OS Launcher
The new Huawei Harmony OS launcher is now available for preview on your existing Android smartphone too.
Huawei said to be developing AppGallery Platform which will be the app store, so-called Play Store for Android. Further Huawei Mobile services will work in the same fashion as Google Play Services.
Google Apps for HarmonyOS
The biggest question still remains for the worldwide users on how they will download the services like Google Maps, Google search and Chrome? These apps are so-called as Google Apps and there are millions of users of it. Are they coming as an app? Not exactly because Google will have to develop that and submit to AppGallery store (Play Store for Harmony OS phones) and definitely the Mountain View company will not be doing that. So the question still remains as a question - How will Huawei integrate Google Apps?
