Huawei recently launched HarmonyOS, the company’s own operating system which is to be used in almost all the products from the brand. Huawei is now gearing up to launch the HarmonyOS for smartphones in a few days.
Now, ahead of the launch of HarmonyOS for smartphones next week, the company has teased the arrival of its next-generation smartwatch — Huawei Watch 3, which will also be running the HarmonyOS.
For those who are unaware, Huawei started selling smartwatches in the year 2015 and the first device was launched as Huawei Watch, powered by the Snapdragon Wear chipset and Android Wear. In 2018, the Huawei GT series debuted with HiSilicon Kirin SoC and running the Huawei LiteOS. Now, the company is re-launching the Huawei Watch lineup to address the shortcomings of previous versions.
The upcoming smartphone, which will be running the new HarmonyOS, will come with a newly improved user interface and also comes with support for mobile payments and support for more third-party applications.
Huawei is also expected to release a cellular variant that will have support for eSIM compatibility. But it remains to be seen how the device performs in terms of battery life with this new operating system and additional features.
As far as the June 2 launch event is concerned, Huawei is speculated to announce a couple of other devices, including the Huawei MatePad Pro 2. The Chinese giant expects that by the end of 2021, the number of devices equipped with the Hongmeng operating system will reach 300 million, of which Huawei’s equipment will exceed 200 million, and the number of various terminal devices for third-party partners will exceed 100 million.
