Huawei at HDC 2019 conference introduces the roadmap of the Hongmeng OS (Harmony OS). During the event company shows a roadmap that clearly mentioned, Hongmeng OS 2.0 and Hongmeng OS 3.0 will be available in the domestic PCs, Watch, Cars, and Headsets.
Huawei Hongmeng OS represents an entirely new generation of operating systems as it enables AI capability in different scenarios from PCs, tablets, and other products.
Unlike Android which uses the Linux kernel’s scheduling mechanism, Harmony OS uses a “deterministic latency engine” that provides “precise resource scheduling with real-time load analysis and forecasting and app characteristics matching.”
The result is a 25.7% and 55.6% improvement in response latency and latency fluctuation respectively. In addition, Huawei says the microkernel can make “IPC [Inter Process Communication] performance up to five times more efficient than existing systems,” specifically referencing Google’s Fuchsia OS.
Huawei Harmony/Hongmeng OS roadmap:
- Hongmeng Kernal 1.0 
- Hongmeng Kernal 2.0 
- Hongmeng OS 1.0  – Smart Screen.
- Hongmeng OS 2.0  – PC, Watch, and Cars
- Hongmeng OS 3.0  – Speaker & Headphones
