After accumulating a year's expectation, query, theory, production, approval, dispute, blindness and rationality, the arrival of harmonyos 2.0 has finally opened a new outlet for all people who care about Hongmeng.
When one thing is very similar to another, people tend to compare the two things together and distinguish the high from the low. Finally, they will consider replacing the weak with the strong one, especially when you are not satisfied with the status quo. They will subconsciously hope that the latter can kick the former off the horse as soon as possible.
Android and harmonyos are such a relationship now.
Huawei has always had a lot of its own ideas in terms of systems. Even now, when its hardware involves enough fields, Huawei begins to build its own ecology. Just because of its cooperation with Google, Huawei realized that this has constrained its own hands and feet. Many ideas need to be communicated with Google for a long time before they can be implemented.
Just before the birth of harmonyos, the systems were all Google's. The ecosystem built by Huawei was actually equivalent to farming and harvesting on the fields belonging to others.
But in the end, once the finished product is not satisfactory, Huawei is always criticized first, which is not the result Huawei wants.
Therefore, the provocation and innuendo of the United States to China through Huawei has become the fuse to detonate everything. With the birth of harmonyos, Chinese people have their own system. The ecological construction can be arbitrary, and no longer be controlled by others, causing a sensation. Sooner or later, it will be a matter of time.
In fact, unlike most people think, harmonyos 1.0 is just something that stays on ppt. In the smart screen series products, we have been able to really experience harmonyos.
On the Huawei smart screen equipped with Hongmeng system, when a Huawei mobile phone and a Huawei smart screen are linked, we can put the video calls, games and other pictures on the mobile phone onto the TV screen, and vice versa. The whole linkage process does not need any data lines, and it is completely connected by wireless.
This year's harmonyos 2.0 is different. Its system hierarchy is clearer and more modular. Developers can adjust the system modules and change the size flexibly according to the performance and memory of hardware processors. In this design, developers want to make all kinds of hardware use the same system, it becomes very simple and convenient.
Of course, the most important thing is that, like Android, it is open-source, and Yu Chengdong has made it clear that in October next year, harmony OS 2.0 will be available for all memory devices above 4GB, including Huawei's smartphones. This is exactly what we expected in harmonos last year.
Therefore, Hongmeng, now out of its shackles, is no longer on the same track as Android. Its ultimate goal is not to replace Android, but to become a better existence than Android.
Why does Hongmeng attract developers?
From the perspective of HDC 2020, Huawei's strategic layout is terrible. IOT products, harmony OS and search engines with a high degree of self-development are all accelerating. Now the business orientation is a bit like Google. From the perspective of R & D technology and pattern, they are all first-class level.
The significance of Apple's app store is that Apple provides a convenient and efficient software sales platform for third-party software developers, with revenue, which makes developers' development enthusiasm unprecedented; Google play attracts developers through advertising revenue by virtue of the high market share of Android devices and the free attribute of open source.
So the question is, how does Huawei attract developers to the world of harmonyos 2.0?
The existing mature applications can adapt to and enter the harmony OS environment without too high a threshold. A relaxed development environment is also an irresistible temptation for developers. By simplifying the process, Hongmeng has the opportunity to build its own ecology. It does not require developers to pay too much for the possible cost of system unification.
Finally, of course, we need to rely on some emotional agitation, especially for domestic developers. Although this has always been a point of dispute for Huawei, I don't think it is a completely negative measure. Whether Apple, Android or harmonyos now, at their own public conference, they thank countless developers for their hard work, which is not only a kind of humanistic care, but also gives recognition to developers.
As a Chinese developer, when you hear this sentence, you have every reason to burst into tears. This is your persistence and love, but not just persistence and love.
It's an old wish to break through the wall between devices, but computers have been around for more than 70 years, and this wish has not been realized. However, Huawei's harmonyos, which has been developed over the past seven years, has come to the stage of supporting multiple devices such as large screen, wearable, car phone, speaker, watch, mobile phone and PC.
As we can say, the development of hardware in the next ten years is not only an application platform, but also an application platform.
We don't have to rush for success. Every step Hongmeng has taken now is adding to the new ecological pattern of the Internet of things built by Huawei. How long this house will be built is still unknown, but after it is finished, it will be magnificent.
