As a result of US sanctions, sales of Huawei’s smartphones have been severely affected and the number of models has dwindled.

In fact, the company’s smartphone market share has shrunk significantly as a result of US sanctions, while it is facing various difficulties in making new phones.

As a result of US sanctions, Huawei phones lost access to Google services and apps, while the open-source Android system had to be used.

Now Huawei has started to make its biggest weapon Harmony OS 2.0 part of smart devices as compared to Google’s Android operating system.

Huawei introduced a number of devices during an event on June 2, but the most important news was to upgrade Harmony OS, which will work on these devices.

Harmony OS was introduced in August 2019, but this second-generation version will be part of a number of Huawei devices such as smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches for the first time.

This also means that the Chinese company will no longer have to rely on the Android operating system.

As a result of US sanctions, Huawei has been deprived of Google services, and with that in mind, Harmony has been designed to serve as an alternative to Google services.

At the event, Huawei unveiled two new tablets, the 12.6-inch, and 10.8-inch Matt Pad Pro and the other 11 Matt Pad.

These are Huawei’s first tablets to replace Android with the Harmony OS operating system, while the company’s own Karen has been replaced by Qualcomm Snapdragon processors.

The 10.8-inch Mate Pro has a Snapdragon 870, the Mate Pad 11 has a Snapdragon 865, and the flagship 12.6-inch Mate Pad Pro has Huawei’s own Karen 9000 e processor.

But the main thing is not the processor but the operating system that works on these tablets.

This operating system will not return Google apps and services to Huawei devices, but the Huawei App Gallery will provide alternative apps.

The company also introduced the Huawei Watch 3 which has Harmony operating system, e-SIM, 3-day battery, and other features.
