Huawei reveals HarmonyOS
The multi-platform OS, which is now part of their smart television under Honor, is claimed not to be an Android alternative, but could be, should things go south.
Chinese tech giant Huawei unveiled the first product to use its hotly anticipated and debated operating system—the HarmonyOS—on Saturday at their developers conference. The company announced a smart television under its subsidiary mid-tier brand Honor.
Huawei was blacklisted earlier by Donald Trump, the current president of the USA, amid suspicions of espionage, which the phone-maker has denied. HarmonyOS was announced as an alternative multi-platform operating system for phones and other smart devices should things go south again.
The television will reportedly be available from Thursday across China, according to Huawei's CEO George Zhao.
