Huawei will replace Windows 10 with HarmonyOS 2.0 very soon. The manufacturer’s operating system could be launched on the Chinese market, in personal computers.
In August 2019, Huawei unveiled Harmony OS, a brand new operating system developed to replace Android but not only. Indeed, this OS is also compatible with all the brand’s devices: connected TV, watches and connected objects, tablets, smartphones, and PC. Already in September 2019, Peter Gauden, the international product manager of Huawei, assured that the brand prepared laptops under HarmonyOS, in case of problems with Microsoft and unable to use Windows.

These PCs could ship HarmonyOS 2.0, which confirms the statements of the firm last year.
The informant specifies that several Chinese provinces are currently working with Huawei to set up a production line for these PCs. A key element for the company, which wishes to be independent in its production capacities. As a reminder, Huawei had unveiled the roadmap of the various updates of HarmonyOS during the Huawei Developer Conference 2019 (HDC) last summer.
