CEO Of HUAWEI Claims HarmonyOS Can Compete With iOS In 2 Years
Now everyone knows about the whole US and China ban, where HUAWEI no longer allowed to do business with Google. Despite the ordeal, it seems that they believe that they can match up to Apple’s iOS.
Since the company can no longer run their Android-based OS, HUAWEI has been working on their very own HarmonyOS. At the moment, there’s only one device that’s running the OS, their sister company’s HONOR Vision TV that was launched in China.
Currently it doesn’t seem that HarmonyOS is ready to be launched on smartphones but in a recent interview, HUAWEI’s CEO, Ren Zhengfei has claimed that their in-house operating system will be able to compete with rivals such as Apple’s iOS within the period of 2 years.
I think it will take less than two to three years. Since I’m part of the company’s leadership, I need to be a bit more conservative when discussing timelines. Otherwise, I may end up putting too much pressure on our stuff.Ren Zhengfei, CEO of HUAWEI
He was then asked about the future of HUAWEI and Google. He then answered by saying that they still hope that they can use Google’s operating system and mentions that they are committed to a friendly cooperation with Google. Additionally he says that they are a bit on the downside when it comes to “big software architecture”.
Pokdepinion: Now those are some bold claims from the CEO. Whether it will come true or not, well we will have to wait to see it for ourselves..
