Huawei: HarmonyOS can compete with Google and Apple

According to Huawei's director, the Chinese company's mobile operating system can compete with Google and Apple. However, analysts say it may be difficult to achieve this, especially in markets outside of China, where American tech giants are located, and these markets are well established.

Eric Tan, Vice President of Huawei Consumer Cloud Services, said: “Huawei can provide an ecosystem based on the same systems as Google and Apple. We are confident that we will become the best ecosystem in the world. One of the system’s developers.”

Tan talked about HarmonyOS, the company's operating system that was launched in August, and when that comment was introduced, the Chinese tech giant was trying to shake off the shackles of American technology.

Huawei smartphones have relied on Google's Android operating system for many years. However, in 2019, the Chinese company was put on the American blacklist, which restricted access to American technology and could no longer use their phones. Android software licensed.

In response, Huawei released its OS in the same year, and Huawei executives discussed at the HarmonyOS World Analyst Summit that the OS can only run on a variety of devices on smartphones, which could create hope for applications. Developers whose programs run on different devices.

Executives also talked about Huawei's mobile service (HMS), a bunch of different Huawei apps like cards, digital payments, and their app stores.

You might say that given Huawei's ability to launch its operating system less than a year ago, the demand for an ecosystem at Google and Apple is important, but Tan backs its statement, declaring that Huawei is in late March. 1.4 million was. Registered developers, up 115% compared to the same period in 2019.

The problem of Google's inability to access Android is not a big deal in China, as Huawei is the largest manufacturer of smartphones in terms of market share, as the country bans the use of Google services and prohibits users from using what means that the HarmonyOS system can be successfully marketed locally.

However, Huawei may find it difficult to market construction services based on Google (HarmonyOS) services on the international market, and it is not easy for Chinese companies to build leading application libraries in developing countries. Outside of China due to many of these applications the program relies on management and other business on Google. Digital copyright, website and payment.

These services (HMS) are similar to services (GMS) and offer a group of developers who include elements like them. For example: location services can be integrated into applications. The Chinese company claims that 60,000 apps use services (HMS), but has not separated the country or region in which it is located.

The App Gallery reached 420 million users in the first quarter of this year, and is now available in more than 170 countries. "We need to work with our developer partners to deliver the applications consumers need," said Tan.
