Huawei unveiled HarmonyOS Next for developers back in the summer as the future OS for all Huawei devices. According to Richard Yu, the HarmonyOS Next is almost ready to be rolled out to end users and all native applications have been updated.
There’s one major omission in the OS – Android apk support. HarmonyOS Next won’t be able to install Android apps or read Android code.
It seems that while HarmonyOS Next is visually identical to the ongoing HarmonyOS, Huawei dropped the Android libraries support.
It seems Huawei is getting more serious about its in-house OS. According to sources from the Zhilian Recruitment platform, companies are busy recruiting talent for the development of HarmonyOS. The major positions include software development, mobile development, and software testing in the fields of Internet, computer software, and telecommunications/value-added services.
Over 75% of the positions require a bachelor’s degree and more than 3 years of work experience and offer an above-average salary.
