Huawei introduced the world to HarmonyOS 3.0, the third iteration of its own operating system, created to replace Android. This time the company has focused on the comprehensive development of the system, working on the visual and ecosystem components, smooth operation and security. So, in order.
Firstly, the design concept of universal cards on the desktop was introduced. According to the idea, it will simplify access to frequently used applications and services, and at the same time will allow you to flexibly customize the shell to suit your color preferences. In addition, you can quickly switch between combinations of card positions depending on your current needs.
Secondly, the ecosystem concept of HarmonyOS 3.0 as a hyperterminal has been developed, in which not only a smartphone can now play the main role. A lot of useful tools have been added to improve the connectivity of surrounding gadgets and seamless switching between them. For example, now you can connect two pairs of TWS headphones at the same time. Thirdly, work has been done on optimizing the OS, which now loads the hardware less, runs smoother and slows down less after a few years.
Once again, Huawei puts a special emphasis on the security of HarmonyOS, which in its third generation has acquired a privacy center straight from Android 12. From there, you can check which applications and how often they access the network, cameras, microphone, etc.
Finally, as an ecosystem solution, HarmonyOS 3.0 will be available not only on smartphones and tablets, but also on smart watches, TVs, printers and other smart home devices. The first wave of updates to HarmonyOS 3.0 starts in September.
