Huawei patents HarmonyOS, its alternative to Android
Beijing, Jul 8 (Prensa Latina) The technological giant Huawei requested patenting its HarmonyOS operating system, developed despite obstacles to access applications, Android system updates and various Google services, reported the local press.
According to reports released on the Qichacha platform, the process began on June 19th and includes requesting copyrights for the Huawei HarmonyOS, HarmonyOS Connected and HarmonyOS Linked brands.
That step follows the unveiling of a smart TV from its Honor line, which is the company's first device to have the operating system built-in.
According to information released by Huawei, HarmonyOS is available in more than 170 countries and has at least four million active users.
The Ark Compiler is also being brought up to speed, with the potential to support the EMUI, an Android mod, and achieve a good performance of a host of apps; and talent recruitment is underway to accelerate innovation and development of artificial intelligence, chips and new smartphone models with the HarmonyOS included.
With these alternatives, the Chinese corporation seeks to shield itself and stay on its feet in the face of the growing international crusade led by the United States, which implies restrictions to access key technology on US soil and those developed by third countries.
Huawei is also facing barriers to operate in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and France, among others, under the alleged argument that it threatens national security, conducts espionage or steals official secrets.
