Summary

At the "Huawei Developer Conference 2019," Huawei gave a Chinese-language presentation on HarmonyOS, which only included only a vague overview of the OS and no screenshots or demos.HarmonyOS isn't quite targeting smartphones yet, and the OS will first debut on the "Honor Smart Screen" (which sounds like an Echo Show or Google Home Hub) and Huawei TVs. Huawei said an expansion to smartphones could happen sometime over the next three years, but for now, it wants to stick with Android.Further ReadingThe first Tizen smartphone isn’t an “Android killer”—it’s a bad Android cloneAs for what HarmonyOS actually is, the company described it as "a microkernel-based OS, distributed OS for all scenarios." Huawei says the OS will run across a range of form factors, and the company even pulled out the old "write once, run everywhere" claim for app developers. XDA Developers attended the launch event, and the group was told by Huawei's CEO that the OS is not compatible with Android apps, but that it is "very easy" to turn an Android app into a HarmonyOS app.
