Chinese tech titan Huawei has officially announced the first series of devices running their in-house HarmonyOS Operating System. The new OS will be viewed on two new tablets -MatePad Pro and MatePad and a smartwatch named Watch 3. You can only buy HarmonyOS devices only in China for now.
Huawei was working on HarmonyOS to replace Android after the US trade ban barred the company from using Google's platform for mobile devices. The launch of Huawei's OS will pave its way to challenge iOS and Android, which are the two major platforms utilised around the globe.
The HarmonyOS comes with its app store called App Gallery like the Play Store on Android and App Store on iOS. It is said to run across devices including smartphones, TVs, laptops and more.

Huawei revealed that its operating system will be installed in about 300 million devices by the end of 2021, with about 200 million being Huawei's devices.
