EMUI 12 & HarmonyOS 2.0’s Fascinating Device Upgrade Plan! [2022]

Hongmeng OS is an “for now” Android-based operating system that has been developed by HUAWEI since 2019.

Together with the HDC 2020 (HUAWEI Developer Conference), HUAWEI introduced HarmonyOS 2.0 (aka HongmengOS). This operating system, which continues in the beta process until mid-2021, released with new devices, has been introduced in the global market under the name EMUI 12, and continues to be developed to provide a different experience than the Android ecosystem.

This OS is designed to work on different types of devices that are compatible with all scenarios. We can use IT on IOT devices, smart watches/bands, even vehicles.

HarmonyOS 2.0 has recently completed a roadplan to adapt to different product groups.

  • September 10, 2020 – Devices with 128KB and 128MB RAM
  • April 21, 2021 – Devices with 128MB to 4 GB of RAM
  • October 2021 – Devices with RAM capacity more than 4 GB

HarmonyOS Roadmap

HUAWEI devices that already have a Google certificate will be able to access Google services without any problems after EMUI 12 upgrade.

HarmonyOS is that it consumes less device resources compared to Android

One of the features of HarmonyOS is that it consumes less device resources compared to Android. Compared to Android, it uses approximately 6-7GB less system size, and its RAM optimization allow it to work comfortably even on devices with 128kb of RAM. We can understand how fast HarmonyOS 2.0 is from the HUAWEI Watch 3 Pro smartwatch, which is very similar to the Xiaomi Watch S1. It works pretty fast.

It’s based on Android 10, so unfortunately it doesn’t include some new features.
