Regarding Hongmeng, the official website explains that “HarmonyOS is a “future-oriented” distributed operating system for all scenarios (mobile office, sports health, social communications, media entertainment, etc.). Based on the traditional single-device system capabilities HarmonyOS proposes a distributed concept based on the same set of system capabilities and adapting to multiple terminal forms. It can support a variety of terminal devices such as mobile phones, tablets, smart wearables, smart screens, and car machines. In other words, Harmony OS is for all Scenarios, distributed design, micro-kernels, and soft buses are his important realizations.” There is a saying that these concepts are too abstract for most people, and everyone is still in the cloud of Hongmeng. In order to let consumers know this new friend, Huawei took great pains.
Friends who follow Hongmeng may have noticed that there are many interesting and vivid metaphors in Huawei or the media’s articles about Hongmeng. Wang Chenglu, president of Huawei’s consumer business software, compared it to “movable type printing”: decoupling and splitting hardware capabilities to a minimum, a hardware module is equivalent to a single font, which can be reused indefinitely. When users have needs, these modules can be arranged and combined into chapters according to their needs.
Movable type printing is one of the four great inventions of ancient China. Everyone knows a thing or two about movable type printing. The so-called movable type printing is to first make the positive negative text model of the individual characters, then select the individual characters according to the manuscript, arrange them in the dial and print them, and then remove the font after printing, and save it for the next time typography. The importance of movable type printing is reflected in this “live”. It is flexible, not fixed, can be divided and combined, which greatly reduces the time-consuming of the producer and achieves higher efficiency than engraving. This kind of thinking of “I have three thousand weak waters, take one scoop when I use it” has enlightened Huawei. Hongmeng’s design idea is inspired by this-disassemble the system into modules, combine them as needed, and change according to the software and hardware forms and scenarios. Faced with the coming era of the Internet of Everything, this highly flexible technical structure that follows the concept of movable type printing may also become the key to Hongmeng’s winning the market.
Recently, Huawei announced a list of the adaptation progress of Hongmeng Harmony OS. As of December 2, 135 devices have been upgraded to the official version, and 6 devices are undergoing public beta recruitment.
The recruiting list for the public beta is Huawei Nova 8SE Active Edition, Huawei Tablet M5 Youth Edition 8-inch, Huawei Tablet M5 Youth Edition 10.1 inches, Huawei Enjoy Tablet 10.1 inches, Honor Tablet 58 inches, and Honor Tablet 5 10.1 inches.
At present, the main source of equipment for Huawei Hongmeng Harmony OS system is the domestic market, but in just 5 months, more than 150 million devices in the domestic market have upgraded the Hongmeng Harmony OS system, which also makes Hongmeng the fastest growing mobile phone in the world. operating system.
The rapid increase is inseparable from the outstanding performance of Hongmeng Harmony OS.
Derek Yu, president of Huawei’s consumer business in Central and Eastern Europe, Northern Europe and Canada, said that when users switched from Android to Hongmeng Harmony OS, satisfaction increased by 10%.
It is reported that Huawei is deploying the Hongmeng Harmony OS system to enter the European market. In addition to the domestic market, the European market is also Huawei’s main strategic location. By then, it is believed that more and more equipment can be upgraded to the Hongmeng Harmony OS system.
According to Huawei’s official news, its 135 devices provide upgrades to the Hongmeng system, and 6 devices are in public testing. In December, there will be more than 10 mobile phones that provide Hongmeng system upgrade services. According to the current installation speed, there are already more than 200 million. Of users are using Hongmeng system.
The mature application of Hongmeng system can change the shortcomings of my country’s mobile phone manufacturing industry and break the monopoly of operating systems in Western countries. Huawei has resolutely launched its own system amidst layers of blockade, which verifies the essence of science and technology and the role of enterprises. Connotation.

Hongmeng is a new generation of intelligent terminal operating system for the Internet of Everything, which provides a unified language for the intelligence, interconnection and collaboration of different devices. Through distributed technology, a system can meet the needs of multiple devices of various sizes and realize flexible deployment; combine N devices into a “super terminal”, hardware mutual assistance, resource sharing, and free call according to personal needs. For developers, it can realize one-time development and multi-terminal deployment, making multi-device application development easier.
News on December 7 (Cheng Mengling) According to China Electronics News, recently, Derek Yu, President of Huawei’s consumer business in Central and Eastern Europe, Northern Europe and Canada, said in an interview with the media that Huawei will launch the Hongmeng operating system for European users next year (2022) .
