On December 16, Huawei held a Beta event for HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile phone developers. At the same time, HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile phone developers Beta open beta recruitment online. Currently, the first test version (Beta1) of the Huawei HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile phone developer beta has been OTA push for test users, but it is only applicable to developers and Huawei’s industry partners.
Starting on the 16th of this month, Huawei P40, P40 Pro, Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro and MatePad Pro users are already eligible to sign up to test the HarmonyOS 2.0 developer beta. The deadline for registration is 23:59:59 on January 31 next year.
The volume of this update package is 4.04GB, and the version number is HarmonyOS 188.8.131.52 (SP2DEVC00E2R5P90). But this update does not note the development log, only to provide developers with the most basic precautions.
As an operating system in the era of Internet of Everything, HarmonyOS integrates multiple physically separated devices into a “super terminal” through distributed technology. For example, HarmonyOS can optimize the travel experience through the collaboration of mobile phones and watches. When waiting for online car-hailing, users do not have to frequently take out their mobile phones to check vehicle dynamics. Information such as license plate number and vehicle location will be synchronized on the watch in real time and can be seen by raising their hands; the online shopping experience blessed by HarmonyOS makes online shopping sharing and ordering more convenient, friends In the meantime, you can discuss your favorite products at any time by sharing the screen together, and you can also share the shopping cart together to make up the full reduction, generate orders for each, and settle the payment separately, without mutual transfer.
HarmonyOS uses the interconnection of the underlying system between the mobile phone and the smart home. Users only need to “touch” the mobile phone to quickly connect to the device. The working status of home appliances is not only visualized through the screen of the mobile phone, but also actively reminds the user of the equipment’s operation and consumables.
With the rapid development of 5G and AI technology, a new era of Internet of Everything is coming. However, the innovation of mobile Internet is still limited to a single device based on mobile phones, and the fragmented single device operating experience can no longer meet people’s needs in different scenarios. Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei’s Consumer Business Software Department, said: “In the future, it will no longer be the product that restricts the user’s usage scenarios, but the user’s scenario that defines the shape of the device.”
It is understood that HarmonyOS integrates multiple physically separated devices into a “super terminal” through distributed technology. For example, HarmonyOS can optimize the travel experience through the collaboration of mobile phones and watches. When waiting for online car-hailing, users do not have to frequently take out their mobile phones to check vehicle dynamics. Information such as the license plate number and vehicle location will be synchronized on the watch in real time; HarmonyOS connects the underlying system between the mobile phone and the smart home, and the user only needs to use the mobile phone. “Touch” to quickly connect the device.
Due to the wide variety of IoT devices and different operating systems, developers need to repeatedly develop applications for different devices such as mobile phones and watches, and it is difficult to design and interact with screens of different sizes. Huawei provides a series of complete frameworks and development tool platforms for building full-scenario applications to help application developers get started quickly and adapt efficiently.
The distributed technology of HarmonyOS can also help hardware manufacturers to achieve “product as a service” industrial upgrade. On the one hand, software is used to redefine the hardware, allowing hardware devices to bring a differentiated smart experience; on the other hand, the hardware capabilities of the devices in the HarmonyOS ecosystem can help each other to increase the access rate of the product’s secondary services and increase The added value of products allows manufacturers to obtain greater commercial space. Currently, more than 20 hardware vendors have joined the HarmonyOS ecosystem.
