Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo are said to be interested in HarmonyOS, Huawei’s operating system. In any case, this is what a famous leaker says on Weibo, the main Chinese social network.
As you know, Huawei aims to offer a real alternative to Android with HarmonyOS. For now, the OS is still in the beta phase, a beta that must also be deployed on a larger number of Huawei smartphones from June 2021 . Ultimately, Huawei expects to integrate HarmonyOS on more than 300 million devices by the end of 2021 .
Of course, Huawei could more easily expect this goal by deploying HarmonyOS on smartphones from other manufacturers . However, according to revelations from a famous leaker on the Chinese social network Weibo, several Chinese manufacturers have shown interest in the OS of the Shenzhen firm.
XIAOMI, VIVO AND OPPO CONSIDER HARMONYOS IN CASE OF GLITCH WITH ANDROID
This would be particularly the case of Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo and Meizu who according to the informant “ contacted Huawei” to “ adapt the OS to their devices”. Our colleagues from TechRadar contacted the brands concerned to obtain their official position on the subject . According to the various statements obtained, none of the previously mentioned manufacturers wishes to migrate permanently to HarmonyOS. Nevertheless and if we have fun reading between the lines, these brands consider HarmonyOS as a potential option , especially in the event of a problem with their Android license.
What make further ensure the legitimacy of HarmonyOS , which hitherto sorely lacked support from other manufacturers. However, we now have confirmation of the interest of Xiaomi and Oppo, two of the most important Chinese manufacturers, in Huawei’s operating system.
As a reminder, the revelations of this leaker echo a previous news. Indeed, our colleagues from the PhoneArena site had assured that several Chinese manufacturers had approached Huawei to learn about HarmonyOS . Shortly before the publication of this article, Huawei had announced that it intended to offer HarmonyOS to all interested smartphone manufacturers , eager to emancipate themselves from Google and Android. This call obviously resonated with Chinese manufacturers, who were probably worried about being blacklisted in turn and losing the enjoyment of their Android license, as was the case for Huawei.
