Huawei takes another step in the ecosystem with HarmonyOS 2.0
While there are more smart devices in our lives than ever before, the experience they provide is often not smart. Stacked systems tend to complicate interconnections and operations, which unfortunately leads to a fragmented user experience.
HarmonyOS was designed to solve this problem. HarmonyOS, a next-generation operating system for smart devices, provides users with a more comfortable, smooth and secure experience by providing a common language for different types of devices to connect and collaborate. Distributed to decouple and flexibly distribute system software and combine previously independent devices into a cohesive and integral Super Device using technology. The user freely exploits the capabilities of the component devices according to their needs. A new type of connectivity experience is offered through Service Widgets.
HUAWEI WATCH 3 Series
Huawei’s brand new flagship smartwatch HUAWEI WATCH 3 Series redefines fashion on your wrist. Featuring a curved glass display and a 316L stainless steel case, this stylish watch features a brand new watch crown that senses different pressure levels and provides haptic feedback in response to user input. The HUAWEI WATCH 3 Series also allows making phone calls and listening to music by sharing the same phone number and data plan with your smartphone.
The HUAWEI WATCH 3 Series, the first smartwatch powered by HarmonyOS, integrates directly with Huawei smartphones to provide a multi-functional travel assistant service. The functionality streams directly from the smartphone, making all travel and flight information accessible at a glance. When using public transport on the way home from the airport, both the clock and the phone remind that the final destination is approaching.
HUAWEI WATCH 3 Series works like a professional fitness and health manager, supporting more than 100 exercise modes. Equipped with a new high-precision temperature sensor, the watch supports measuring body temperature for the first time. It also supports blood glucose management, fall detection and SOS functions, as well as being used to monitor and manage health status in real time. It also reminds easy-to-forget details such as when the user should drink water or medicine.
The HUAWEI WATCH 3 Series also has an ultra-long battery life for the HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro, lasting 5 days in smart mode and 21 days in ultra-long battery life mode. The HUAWEI WATCH 3, on the other hand, has a battery life of 3 days in Smart mode and 14 days in ultra-long battery life mode.
HUAWEI MatePad Pro: Break the limits for maximum creativity
The new HUAWEI MatePad Pro features a gorgeous 12.6-inch OLED FullView display and 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, the highest of any tablet currently on the market. Powered by the distributed data management and task scheduling capabilities of HarmonyOS, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro can seamlessly work with smartphones and PCs to double the user’s productivity and creativity in different scenarios, whether in the office or on the drawing board.
HUAWEI MatePad Pro also supports Multi-Screen Collaboration between tablets and PCs. In Mirror and Extend modes, the tablet can turn into a drawing board or a screen. It also supports cross-device file dragging, providing more efficient collaboration experiences.
Multi-device interaction with HarmonyOS makes controlling multiple devices as simple as controlling one. The new Multi-Device Control Panel supports simple and intuitive connections via its drag-and-drop built-in feature that allows users to freely connect them to the devices they want according to specific scenarios.
For example, if you want to watch a movie at home late at night, all you have to do is open the Control Panel and drag the smart screen icon to your phone icon. So the movie will stream directly from your phone to the TV. If you are wearing your HUAWEI FreeBuds 4, you can drag the headset icon to the phone icon; at this point the movie will play on your smart screen while redirecting your audio through your FreeBuds. These cases are just a simple example of the Super Device experience.
HarmonyOS’ new Multi-Device Task Center allows apps to switch between different devices at any time without having to install them, ensuring that all functions and services are available whenever and wherever they are needed. The user can view tasks running on any other device, on any device that is part of the Super Device system. If a larger screen is desired for mobile games, swipe up and mouse click to bring up the Overview Screen, and the game can be transferred to the HUAWEI MatePad Pro to continue the fun.
The new HarmonyOS Home Screen is more fluid and organized than ever before. You can swipe up in apps to create Service Widgets that display real-time, easy-to-access information or services without having to open the app. You can customize the size of Service Widgets, tap apps and swipe up to view widgets, tap any empty location on the home screen to hide them. Service Widgets can also be used to access Atomic Services, which can be easily called and shared from the Service Center without the need for any downloads or installations, making it easier and more convenient to access functions such as current news.
HUAWEI HiLink has been updated to HarmonyOS Connect to equip more non-Huawei devices with smart features. Now smart home devices can be connected to your mobile phone with a single tap. For example, you can touch your phone to a HarmonyOS-based Midea oven and select a recipe to start preparing your meal instantly. You can keep your food fresh for longer with Haier refrigerators that automatically adjust their temperature according to the type of food you store. You can get the perfect soy milk for your body with Joyoung soy milk machines, which can suggest recipes based on data in the Huawei Health app. Working together, these connections can turn your kitchen into a personal health coach.
A phone using HarmonyOS can maintain read/write speeds similar to those of a new phone after 36 months of use, even with very little storage space on the device.
Huawei takes consumer privacy and security to the next level. HarmonyOS has further enhanced the leading privacy and security technologies found in EMUI. Huawei’s key design principle is to ensure that only the right person can access the right data with the right device, ensuring the security of every access to every device, as well as the reliability of all data storage, transmission and use action. When multi-device co-authentication is enabled, users can only unlock their smartphone with a combination of facial recognition and a special control that ensures that the watch they are wearing is connected to the phone.
HarmonyOS protects devices by level by managing user data by category and setting specific security threshold for Super Devices. Only devices that meet strict security requirements can access data corresponding to their security level, allowing users to use Multi-Device Collaboration features with peace of mind. HarmonyOS apps undergo rigorous testing throughout development, release, installation and use to ensure they offer a secure experience in a clean ecosystem.
At today’s event, HUAWEI also introduced its two high-end monitors, MateView and MateView GT, along with the new generation semi-open Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) wireless bluetooth headset FreeBuds 4.
