A Chinese developer installed Huawei's open-source operating system harmonyos on a computer. The HarmonyOS 3.2 Beta 3 release tested on an HP laptop, which responded accurately to all mouse movements.
According to recent reports, Wang Chenglu (CEO of Shenzhen Kaihong Digital Industry Development) hinted at the possibility of an official release of HarmonyOS for PC next year.
For those who don't know, Wang Chenglu joined Huawei in 1998 and held the position of President in BG Consumer Software Division.
But what really caught our attention is that Wang Chenglu recently confirmed that the company will release HarmonyOS on PCs as well via a reply to a Weibo post. A user posted a question on Weibo, “Will there be a HarmonyOS PC next year?” Wang Chenglu answered with a simple “Yes”.
However, it remains to be confirmed when exactly this OS will be released.
Recent rumors suggest that Microsoft is preparing to release a new operating system called Windows 12. If Huawei releases HarmonyOS, we'll see how it performs compared to Windows 12.
The Chinese developer who installed HarmonyOS on an HP laptop reported that it ran smoothly. The developer also managed to customize drivers for USB, network port, SATA port, PCIe and other HP hardware.
Huawei released HarmonyOS 4.0, early August. The new operating system brought significant changes to the design as well as new features.
