@sambamba it turns out that Huawei's Harmony O.S is just good old Android.

:D:D:D:D:D Like we figured all along, China helped Biden to steal the election because he will let them keep Android.

@Sambamba , @MortyTuumbo , @Ndindu yaani China mzima they can't build an O.S ?



Huawei's HarmonyOS 2.0 beta is based on Android's framework
26 December 2020
Huawei released the HarmonyOS 2.0 beta version of the software for select devices earlier this month and one developer decided to dig a little deeper to see what Huawei's new OS is all about. And as it turns out, it's still pretty much Android-y.


First, he made a simple "Hello world" app for the much older Android 4.4 KitKat environment and this triggered a very similar message on a virtual machine running a recent version of Android (left) and a virtual machine running HarmonyOS 2.0 beta (right). This seems to be a reoccurring theme with other things, but instead of "Android", the messages say "HarmonyOS".

The developer also managed to open up the system partition, which only confirmed his theory - HarmonyOS is based on Android's framework. At least for now, it is.

According to Huawei's own presentation, the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) will serve as a stepping stone to what HarmonyOS is trying to achieve. Meaning, current beta 2.0 version might be based on Android, but in the future, it would most likely transition to its own framework.

@Kahuni Maisha I thought we were told that these Ching chongs are smart. Mind you Huawei has run out of microchips. Biden is the only one who can save them :


Huawei Harmony OS 2.0 may still be Android underneath

Huawei has long been boasting about its independence from Google, especially in software, though that independence was more or less forced upon it anyway. In addition to building its own ecosystem of Android apps and services, the embattled Chinese tech giant has been working on its own OS to replace Android on its devices. Harmony OS 2.0 is being positioned to finally break away from Google’s mobile platform, at least as far as Huawei smartphones are concerned, but it may turn out to still be based on Android after all.


Huawei recently opened the doors for mobile developers to test out the beta version of its Harmony OS 2.0. Unlike the first Harmony OS release that landed on IoT hardware like smart TVs, version 2.0 is will be targeting smartphones. Naturally, developers were all too curious about Huawei’s own mobile OS and poked around until they found disappointing but also unsurprising clues.
For those anticipating or wishing for a completely new mobile OS to break the Android and iOS duopoly, you will not find one in the Harmony OS 2.0 beta. Developers have discovered that it is pretty much Android underneath, both in appearance as well as internal structure. You could even use ADB, the Android Debug Bridge, to peer into the operating system’s Android-like innards.


That said, it might also be too early to write Harmony OS off as just another Android-based spin like Amazon’s Fire OS. There’s still a chance that this situation is applicable only for the beta testing phase to get app developers up and running quickly with tools they may already have. It can also be just a stepping stone for a more Android-free version of Harmony OS, maybe by version 3.0.
At the same time, it also makes a bit of business sense for Huawei to continue down this path. After investing so heavily in AppGallery and Huawei Mobile Services, both based on Android, it would be a complete waste if it threw them all out immediately. It could be a strategy to get developers to rely on Huawei APIs that would then be used to seamlessly transition to an OS that will completely be free of any trace of Google.

Another 4yrs of Trump, and the CCP under the Accelerator, China will because a slum.
