New HarmonyOS logos look quite odd, to say the least
If you take a look at the two images below, you’ll get to see both logos. As you can see, these two logos do look quite odd, to say the least. They’re also quite different.
The one for the global markets has a letter ‘H’ in it. Along with that, there are three vertical lines, and six dots on it. Those dots are randomly applied to the logo itself, or at least it seems like it.
The Chinese variant of the logo doesn’t have the letter ‘H’ in it, it’s just three separate dots, and three connected ones. If you rotate that logo for 90 degrees to the right, it’ll actually look like a clown. That is quite weird.
That is pretty much everything that Yu Chengdong revealed. He did not share any additional information about the OS, or anything of the sort. Huawei is working hard on HarmonyOS, though.
The company’s ultimate goal is to push this OS to pretty much all of its products. That will take a long time, though, at least it seems that way.
HarmonyOS is a microkernel-based, distributed operating system. Back when it launched, Huawei said that it’s “designed to deliver a cohesive user experience across all devices and scenarios”.
HarmonyOS is also quite lightweight, according to the company. This OS won’t come to smartphones anytime soon, unless something changed since Huawei shared that info at launch.
This OS won’t reach smartphones anytime soon
The company said that it will reach smartwatches, smart screens, in-vehicle systems, and smart speakers first. So, smartphones may be in line to get it, but down the road.
Huawei said that HarmonyOS is seamless, smooth, secure, and unified. It also said that there’s a huge emphasis on security when it comes to this operating system.
There’s a lot to look forward to when it comes to HarmonyOS, though it remains to be seen if it will become as popular as Huawei hopes it will. This OS is still in its infancy, basically.
Moving away from Android may prove to be a difficult task for Huawei. The US ban hit the company hard, and it has issues not only on the software side, but on hardware as well. Huawei will be unable to manufacture its Kirin processors in the near future. The company announced it will halt production in September.
