Great news. Finally an OS without CIA/NSA backdoors.

Well, we can say all the negative things about HarmonyOS, but all that won't change the fact that the OS is now here. The sure thing is that Chinese will eventually jump on it.

In 5 years time it will be a whole new thing. This is just first transition phases. All they need now is to grow the name, make people migrate easier and as long as people think is Android, they will trust it more

As simple as that, that's what harmonyOS did

There is no "Android based", Android is Linux based with a layer of Java and XML as HMI juste like all other Linux distros

Just a forked Android skin without GMS.. Sorry Huawei, for no takers of this in the west.

Jesus people, can you all stop whining about HarmonyOS not being whole new OS? Who says first iteration needs to be absolutely and totally different? Besides, why would Huawei kill Android as foundation of it and remove last remaining compatibility? That would be just stupid. First Ubuntu versions probably weren't that much different from Debian in the beginning, but now they are very much different. Same can happen with HarmonyOS. Its foundation is AOSP Android and with time it'll go into its own direction. It can still essentially be Android to keep compatibility, but it'll evolve on its own.

Deny it as much as you want, but Huawei lied to everyone.

notafanboy, 29 May 2021What is your purpose here other than trolling?This is not in fact trolling, multiple xda developers dug deep down into the HarmonyOS beta 2 code and it is Android 10-based with “No discernible difference” between Harmony OS and Android.

Migrating to an Android 10 rip off without GMS*
But what do I know?
Huawei fanboys claim otherwise lol

Huawei phones are very bad on software. Be it thee experience or updates. Even Huawei flagships get only 2 years of updates for their top price. Right now, Huawei's battery life and camera advantage is now overtaken and beaten by other companies.
