Huawei revealed some big news with the launch of its new operating system for smartphones all over Asia. The operating system is called the HarmonyOS 2.0 and is now available for more than 100 models of Huawei devices.
The need for a separate operating system came about when the company was prohibited from commencing dealings in the US following security threats. However, Huawei is bouncing back strongly with its latest piece of software that will be powering its future products.
Huawei HarmonyOS Overview
Huawei HarmonyOS comes equipped with a lot of handy features for its users. First of all the company is updating the flagship phone from as far back as 2016.
Along with that, the company has estimated that it will take at least up to 2022 to fully complete the updating process. Having said that, there is no denying the changes in the new software.

First and foremost there are major changes in the standard widgets and come as Super Service Widgets. Instead of opening some apps through the icon, users can do it through the widget itself.
A dedicated Control Center is also given to control all the connected devices or supported devices at range. Similarly, it has a Task Center which allows users to communicate tasks from one device to another (like from tablet to phone and vice versa).
Another topic of concern that evolved the Huawei operating system was its security. Now the HarmonyOS has been awarded EAL 4+ certification for its security.
In addition to that, there are features like new font with adjustable thickness, clipboard features, a cross-device, and multi-camera mix which allows users to combine footage from cameras of the different device when recording a video to give a different angle.
