Huawei is facing a hard time to scale up its smartphones in the global markets due to conflict with the USA govt. Earlier launched Huawei Mate 30 series yet to find a proper solution against Google Play Services. That is the reason these devices are not available in the major global markets. But the company seems to find a viable solution for its upcoming Huawei P40 series. According to a tipster, Huawei will bring the dual-boot solution for the P40 / P40 Pro with Android 10 and Harmony OS working simultaneously.

However, it is a common practice for PC users, but we haven’t yet seen any smartphone brand doing the same. Frankly speaking, we don’t have any idea how this works with smartphones, but a sensible solution if it is really possible. Android 10 based on EMUI 10 likely to avoid the Google play services on the P40 series. It will most probably be using the same custom OS stuffed in Huawei’s own app store and other services, similar to the Mate 30 series.
Besides, it could be useful to find out how new Harmony OS receives the response from the global audience without forcing them to use a brand new operating system. To recall, Harmony OS (AKA HongMeng OS for China) is a new system based OS from the Huawei, introduced in the response of the various sanctions imposed by the US govt. Eventually, the company wanted to secure its mobile business if anyhow Android refuses to use its Android OS.
The harmony OS is well capable of running a wide range of devices including mobile phones, wearables, laptops, and televisions. Basically, it is a microkernel-based distributed operating system. The company claims that it can work with RAM sizes ranging from mere kilobytes to hundreds of gigabytes. It is an open-source project with an integrated ARK compiler and will support existing Android apps as well as HTML 5 and Linux. What are your thoughts? Do let’s know in below comment section!
