Harmony OS will have a very different interface than Android

In recent times Huawei has focused much of its resources on creating an Android alternative called Harmony OS (at least in the West, in China it's called Hongmeng OS).

This new operating system is compatible with android applications that we all know but is designed to be, according to Huawei's managers, better than Google's system.

Harmony OS interface will change

What is most striking about the versions that we have seen so far of Harmony OS is that visually, there are hardly any differences with EMUI, the layer that Huawei uses on Android.

This may be the case to familiarize developers, but when the stable version is official, when betas are over, this seems to change.

According to a Huawei manager, the final version of your new operating system will be very different from EMUI, although you have not specified how it will change.

A complicated future

Huawei has also made it clear that Harmony OS won't be a better replacement for the brand now that it can't access Android in the same way as its rivals.

What you want to create is an alternative that serves more manufacturers and becomes a better option in the immediate future, enhancing aspects such as device interconnection, something key in the 5G era and the Internet of Things.

It is yet to be seen where both the first and second statements materialize since Huawei's task ahead is little less than titanic.
