The Huawei Mate 40 will be the first cell phone to have the operating system of the Chinese company and in this way it will say goodbye to Android

With the blockade imposed by the United States, Huawei he was forced to look for new alternatives that would allow him to continue offering his services without having to depend on third parties.

That is why he developed his own OS and in this way not having to depend on Android to launch new equipment. Although it was originally aimed at its televisions, the company announced that it would also be present in its mobile devices.

According to Gizmochina, Mai Yumin, vice president of Huawei’s software department, revealed that the first beta version of the OS It will arrive in December of this year. The first reports detail that the Huawei Mate 40 it will be the first cell phone you will have HarmonyOS.

This is not a launch taken lightly. Since this device is the most advanced phone of the Chinese brand at the moment. It will be a first test for the operating system of the company, since its acceptance will depend on its implementation to more computers.

HarmonyOS is not a new system at Huawei

It should be remembered that the company has been working on its system for 5 years. But the US bloc hastened its development in recent months. HarmonyOS 1.0, available since 2019, is currently only used on televisions bearing the brand Huawei and Honor.

The idea of ​​the tech giant is that HarmonyOS is present on multiple devices. And in this way create an ecosystem that includes computers, laptops, tablets, televisions, smart watches and cell phones.

For there to be greater acceptance of the OS The Chinese company has worked to encourage developers to work with it and thus provide users with endless options.


Even Huawei It opened the possibility for other manufacturers to include it in their devices, however it is still a risky bet since there is no acceptance by users who have become accustomed to IOS Y Android.

In this sense, the company faces a great challenge if it wants to be able to enter the market. In order not to disappear like the Windows mobile operating system did.

HarmonyOS will be available from December 16, 2020.
