OpenHarmony Pure Version of System
After the release of HarmonyOS 2, the outside world is very concerned, but there is also some confusion and misinterpretation, Huawei stressed that it has donated all the basic capabilities of the HarmonyOS operating system to the Open Atom Open Source Foundation in two parts in 2020 and 2021, and the foundation integrated other participants’ contributions to form the OpenHarmony project.
As for HarmonyOS 2, also known as Harmony 2.0, it is a commercial version of Huawei’s OpenHarmony 2.0 based on the open-source project for a variety of full-scene smart devices. Since the OpenHarmony project is open source and open, interested and needy organizations and individuals around the world can participate in the project on an equal footing.
According to the introduction, OpenHarmony is based on the traditional single-device system capability, and creatively proposes the concept of adapting multiple terminal forms based on the same set of system capability, supporting multiple terminal devices to run on the first version. The first version supports 128K-128M devices and developers will get emulator, SDK package, and IDE tools.
So what does OpenHarmony look like? The developer now demonstrates the operating mode of this OpenHarmony, including the boot screen and operation methods. The developer tried to compile and burn it on the Runhe hi3516dv300 development board. From the system screen he shared, OpenHarmony is not the same as HarmonyOS which is currently running on cell phones and tablets, it is much simpler. As a simple example, the mobile version of HarmonyOS can run Android applications, but OpenHarmony should not.
As you can see from the video, although OpenHarmony OS is still relatively rudimentary, but already has the basic conditions for a complete running system, and does not include the current controversial AOSP code, just wait for the establishment of the HarmonyOS ecology, we can see the “real HarmonyOS phone” completely separate from the Android application.
