Huawei’s Hongmeng OS system has been launched on Mate40 and other mobile phones. It has been reported that Xiaomi and other companies are also interested in adopting Hongmeng. Can third-party mobile phone manufacturers use the Hongmeng system? Huawei officially welcomed this.
At the Huawei Hongmeng Partner Summit, Yang Haisong, vice president of Huawei’s Consumer Business AI and Smart Full-Scenario Business Department, said in an interview that the Hongmeng system is completely open source and open source, and this year will follow the established plan to make the 128MB-4GB device full-stack system open source open.
Regarding the issue of third-party cooperation, Yang Haisong said that mobile phone manufacturers from the three parties are welcome to use the Hongmeng system to open source and build together.
However, “who” and “when” the third-party mobile phone will be installed on the Hongmeng system depends entirely on the manufacturer’s own business considerations.
On May 16, 2021, the new Hongmeng OpenHarmony 2.0 will be open sourced one after another.
According to reports, OpenHarmony 2.0 has about 4.6 million lines of key code, which is equivalent to 30% of the 15.25 million lines of Android 10. At the same time, there are about 18,000 key APIs (application programming interfaces), which is equivalent to more than half of Android 10’s more than 36,000 lines. The package volume is reduced to 60-70%, and it can be used by various devices such as mobile phones, tablets, wearable devices, TVs, sensors, etc.
OpenHarmony 2.0 has multiple branch versions. The L2 released this time is a pure version of Harmony. There is no Android code. It can run all Harmony apps, including distributed ones. It can also make calls and surf the Internet, but there are not many apps.
