HarmonyToday Huawei launched a range of smartphones, smartwatches and tablets powered by the new operating system HarmonyOS 2, these devices include the latest versions of the Huawei Mate 40 Series and Mate X2, Watch 3 Series and MatePad Pro.
At today’s event, Huawei also released the FreeBuds 4, the next-generation open-fit Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) wireless Bluetooth earbuds, and two high-end monitors, the Huawei MateView and MateView GT.
Huawei takes this opportunity to announce that about 100 other Huawei devices – including smartphones and tablets – will be upgraded to run HarmonyOS 2 so as to give consumers access to a seamless smart experience across devices in all kinds of different scenarios.
Today there are more smart devices in our lives than ever before, but the experiences they provide are often less intelligent. Closed systems tend to complicate interconnectivity and operation between devices, ultimately leading to a fragmented user experience.
HarmonyOS is designed to solve this problem. As the next generation operating system for smart devices, HarmonyOS provides a common language for different types of devices to connect and collaborate, providing users with a more comfortable, fluid and secure experience. HarmonyOS uses distributed technology to meet the diverse needs of all different types of devices in a single system, enabling flexible deployment as needed.
HarmonyOS also connects previously independent devices into a cohesive and holistic Super Device by integrating all hardware and resources to freely utilize the capabilities of its component devices based on user needs.
For developers, HarmonyOS enables cross-platform development and cross-device app deployment, making app development across devices easier than ever.
A whole new interactive experience: Easier to use and smarter
Device-to-device interactions with HarmonyOS make working with multiple devices as simple as controlling a single device. The new Control Panel supports simple and intuitive connection through a drag and integrate feature that allows users to connect devices according to the specific scenario required.
For example, if you want to watch a movie at home at night, all you have to do is open the Control Panel and point the smart screen icon to the phone icon, and the movie will go directly from the phone screen to the TV. If you are using Huawei FreeBuds 4. You can drag the earphone icon to the phone icon, then when the movie starts on the smart screen, the audio will automatically be directed to the FreeBuds. This is just one example of the Super Device experience that users can enjoy.
The Task Center of HarmonyOS 2 allows applications to move between devices without having to be installed one by one, so that every function and service is available wherever and whenever needed. On any device that is part of the Super Device system, you can see the work running on all other devices. If you want a bigger view when playing games, you can simply move up and hover to open the Overview Screen, then move the game to your Huawei MatePad Pro to continue playing.
The new HarmonyOS Home screen is now sleeker and more organized than the previous version. You can swipe up on an app to bring up the Service Widget that provides a real-time view, making it easier to access information or services without having to open the app itself. You can adjust the size of the Widget by tapping on the app and swiping up to show the Widget and tapping any empty location on the home screen to hide it. The WidgetWidget service feature can also be used to access the Atom Service, which can be easily called up and shared in the Service Center without the need to download or install anything, making it easier and more convenient to access functions such as news aggregation.
In terms of look and feel, the beauty of innovative interactions lies in the aesthetic details: The specially designed HarmonyOS Sans font and Gravitational Animations offer a consistent user experience across all HarmonyOS devices.
Huawei HiLink has also been upgraded in HarmonyOS Connect to equip more non-Huawei devices with smart features. Smart home devices can be connected to your phone with one tap: Tap your phone on a Midea oven that supports HarmonyOS Connect and select a recipe to start preparing your meal instantly. Keep your leftovers longer with the Haier refrigerator which automatically adjusts its temperature based on the type of food stored. Then get the perfect soy milk for your body with Joyoung’s soy milk machine which can recommend recipes based on the data in your health app. When used together, these connections can turn your kitchen into a personal wellness coach.
Comprehensive performance improvements in terms of privacy and security
HarmonyOS 2 runs smoother than the last generation EMUI. HarmonyOS 2 phones can maintain read/write speeds similar to new phones after 36 months of use, even with a small amount of storage memory still available on the device.
HarmonyOS 2 keeps open apps running in the background so your tasks are always available when you leave them. You can return to the last action or page of a particular app even if you have many other apps open. For example, if you use a shopping app to view a product, then switch to another app to message a friend, and then open your browser to look for something else, you can now return to the last page you visited. while browsing on your shopping app without a hitch. What’s more, you can enjoy longer battery life with HarmonyOS 2 based devices. After updating to HarmonyOS 2, Huawei Mate 40 Pro can run Game for Peace for 5.1 hours straight.
Huawei is committed to protecting user privacy and security. HarmonyOS inherits and further develops the leading privacy and security technologies found in EMUI. The company’s core design principles are ensuring that only the right people can access the right data with the right devices, ensuring the security of every access to every device, as well as the security of every act of storing, transmitting, and using data in all scenarios. When multi-device collaborative identity authentication is enabled, users only need to unlock their phone with a combination of facial recognition on their smartphone and a special check that ensures that the user’s smartwatch is a connected smartwatch.
In addition, HarmonyOS manages user data by category and protects devices by level, setting specific security limits for Super Devices. Only devices that meet stringent security requirements can access data appropriate to their security level, ensuring that users can use Multi-device Collaboration features in peace. HarmonyOS apps undergo rigorous testing during development, release, installation, and deployment to ensure a secure experience in a seamless ecosystem.
“We are surrounded by more and more smart devices these days, and are now in a world where everything is connected,” said Richard Yu, Executive Director and CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG).
“Each of us is part of a fully connected world, as is every device. We look forward to working with more partners and developers to build a thriving HarmonyOS ecosystem and deliver better experiences, products and services to our customers around the world.”
To give consumers more opportunities to experience the convenience, smoothness and security of HarmonyOS across all scenarios, nearly 100 Huawei devices in China have been designed to receive the upgrade to HarmonyOS 2, including Huawei Mate 40 series, Mate 30 series, P40 series, Mate X2 , nova 8 series, and MatePad Pro series.
