HarmonyOS, or Hongmeng in Chinese, is a microkernel-based and distributed operating system designed for various devices and scenarios.
 
According to Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's Consumer Business Group, it only takes one to two days to change the operating system to HarmonyOS from Android.
 
However, Yu said, for now, Huawei will continue to give priority to Android operating system.
 
HarmonyOS would first be used in Huawei's smart screen products that  hit markets Saturday.
 
In the next three years, the system will be used in more smart devices such as smart watches and in-vehicle systems.
 
Huawei will also establish an open-source foundation and an open-source community to support more in-depth collaboration with developers.
