Huawei Technologies has announced that it will launch its new smartphone operating system, “Harmony”, on June 2; in the biggest move it has made so far to recover from the damage caused by US sanctions on its mobile sector.
As Reuters notes, using its own operating system will mean it is no longer dependent on Android.
U.S. sanctions prevent Google from providing technical support to the Chinese company’s new devices, as well as access to Google Mobile Services.
It is not yet clear whether new phones will be launched at the same time, or if there will be “updates” for existing phones, or how quickly the launch will begin.
In any case, “HarmonyOS” will only offset to some extent the impact of the 2019 sanctions, which also prevent Huawei from accessing American-sourced technology, limiting its ability to design its own chips and supply components from external suppliers.
Huawei is now sixth worldwide, with a market share of 4% in the first quarter.
