Huawei's Android alternative powers Honor's first smart TV

The World's First Smart Screen equipped with Huawei's Self-developed HarmonyOSDuring the HDC, Huawei launched HarmonyOS, a new microkernel-based, distributed operating system created to deliver a cohesive user experience across all devices and user scenarios.

The Honor Vision smart TV is the first device to run on Huawei's first-party HarmonyOS.

The new TV will become an "information and control center" in the living room, Huawei said, allowing users to make high-definition video calls, sync and project files and pictures between smartphone and TV, while search and control the device by smartphone.

US curbs imposed in May threatened Huawei's smartphone sales by limiting access to Android and blocking Google, a unit of Alphabet Inc., from supporting music and other services based on the system. Users will be able to directly purchase movies, music, TV shows, and other content, though the company hasn't said which apps will be supported by HarmonyOS. Zhao Ming mentioned that Huawei smart screen would not be anything like the traditional TV that the consumers worldwide are used to. The Harmony OS TV could potentially compete with smart speakers that could handle many devices at the same time.

Google is slowly beginning to open up about its next-generation operating system which will take Huawei HarmonyOS head on.

However, if Google will be willing to remove the use of Android on Huawei's devices fully, it remains to be seen.

EU's Juncker tells Britain: no-deal Brexit will hurt you the most
Jeremy Corbyn has urged a top civil servant to block Boris Johnson from pushing through a no-deal Brexit if an election is called. If the Government was to fall, an alternative Government could take power - either a Labour or a national unity administration.

HarmonyOS is completely different from Android and iOS, and supports seamless collaboration across devices. The company's handsets are big sellers in Europe and across the developing world, although political pressure from Washington has kept Huawei phones from becoming popular in the United States.

"We believe HarmonyOS will revitalize the industry and enrich the ecosystem", says Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's Consumer Business Group. Yu said he believed that were it not for the Trump administration's pressure on the firm, Huawei would have finished the year as the planet's No. 1 smartphone maker.

Washington has labeled Huawei a security threat, an accusation the company denies. Then Commercial Departments Does not allow to enter in the Entity list.

Yu said Harmony will be open source and aims to be safer and more efficient than existing ones in the market.

Huawei replaces the Android OS in their Phone with own HarmonyOS.

"We hope to bring greater harmony to this world", he said.
