Huawei officially launched the HarmonyOS 2.0 operating system. Ready to be available for around 100 Huawei devices both smartphones and tablets, HarmonyOS 2.0 will replace Google’s operating system, Android.
HarmonyOS 2.0 Features
In a press release received by Yang sophisticated , Thursday (3/6), Huawei claims HarmonyOS 2.0 will bring a new interactive experience. This operating system is promised to be easier to use and certainly smart.
Interestingly, HarmonyOS can maximize interaction between devices so that users can control multiple devices from a single device. This is supported by a new simple Control Panel with drag and integrate feature, so that users can connect devices according to the required scenario.
For example, when a user watches a movie at home at night, all they have to do is open the Control Panel and point the smart screen icon to the phone icon, and the movie will directly move from the phone screen to the TV. If you have HUAWEI FreeBuds 4. users can drag the earphone icon to the phone icon, then when the movie starts on the smart screen, the audio will automatically be directed to the FreeBuds.
The fun thing is, the Task Center of HarmonyOS 2 allows applications to move between devices without having to be installed one by one. Users can also monitor activities running on other devices.
The user can swipe up on the app to bring out the Widget Service which provides a real-time view without having to open the app. HUAWEI HiLink has also been upgraded in HarmonyOS Connect to make it easier for the device to connect to more non-Huawei devices.
As an example of a usage scenario, users can connect to a Midea oven that supports HarmonyOS Connect and select a recipe to start preparing food instantly. After that, keep leftovers longer with the Haier refrigerator which automatically adjusts the temperature based on the type of food stored.
Performance and security improvements
In addition to features, Huawei claims HarmonyOS 2.0 has a more agile performance than the last generation EMUI. In fact, phones with HarmonyOS 2 can maintain read/write speeds similar to new phones after 36 months of use, even when there is very little available storage.
In terms of security, HarmonyOS 2.0 ensures that only the right people can access the data on the device, ensuring the security of every access to every device, as well as the security of every action of storing, transmitting and using data in all scenarios. In terms of power consumption, HarmonyOS 2.0 is promised to provide longer battery life.
