Huawei has officially unveiled the HarmonyOS operating system on June 2, 2021. Whether on PCs or mobile phones, are becoming larger and larger, and more than a dozen GB of memory has become commonplace. History is now changed by Huawei HarmonyOS is different!
HarmonyOS was not designed for a single device at the beginning but based on a distributed concept, connecting various devices in series. For this reason, the hardware requirements are very flexible, and only 128KB of memory is required to run.
With only one system, it can cover a variety of smart terminal devices with a memory as small as 128K and as large as 4GB or more, bringing consumers an ultimate full-scene interactive experience.
In September last year, HarmonyOS 2.0 was officially announced. At that time, Huawei made it clear that HarmonyOS was first open sourced for 128KB-128MB memory terminal devices such as large screens, watches, and car machines. In April this year, it was open sourced for 128MB-4GB memory terminal devices. In the next month, it will be open sourced for all devices with 4GB or more of memory.
HarmonyOS 2.0 focuses on upgrading distributed capabilities, including distributed software buses, distributed data management, and distributed security. It supports equipment manufacturers to define new equipment with software, making development easier, and joining the full-scenario smart ecosystem in different ways. In addition, Huawei Also donated the source code to the Atomic Foundation.
For application developers, Hongmeng OS 2.0 also brings a new development experience, including the construction of a complete platform tool chain and ecology for all-scenario applications, an application framework that allows applications to flow freely between devices, more than 13,000 APIs, and one-time development Development environment for multi-terminal deployment.
