Huawei named the main differences between HarmonyOS, iOS and Android



Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei’s Consumer Software Division, decided to finally clarify the main differences between HarmonyOS, iOS and Android.

HarmonyOS (HongmengOS in China) for smartphones is considered by many as an alternative to Android. Earlier in the network there were messages that the first release of mobile HarmonyOS 2.0 will be based on the same Android.

Wang Chenglu said yesterday that HarmonyOS is not a copy of iOS and Android. Now he has provided a visual (for those who know Chinese) table showing the main differences between the platforms.
