I mean I really do hope EMUI 12 is the global version of HarmonyOS, but if it is, shouldn't they atleast mentioned it either on the bootscreen or the about page? I don't see HarmonyOS been mentioned anywhere.

Let's be real, whether HarmonyOS is based on Android or not is no longer important.

What we are seeing now that it will never reach global market, especially with the release of EMUI 12 is further proof this point. Either they doesn't want to make it too obvious on the "rebranding" or they had abandoned the plan to penetrate the global market with their "new" OS.

JustSomeRandomGuy, 22 Oct 2021HarmonyOS = just another Android skin that runs Android app... moreIt's already been proven. Huawei has stripped away every line of code in Android that they didn't need. The result is something like an iPhone; Despite a small battery, massive battery life.

(I came from Technick's battery comparison video between a plethora of devices including the iPhone 13 Pro Max, Huawei P50 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, and Samsung S21 Ultra. The iPhone and Huawei finished far ahead of the android phones.)

150M Harmony OS devices ... and all of these devices are in China, aren't they?

HarmonyOS = just another Android skin that runs Android apps and Android itself under the hood

I'll care once Huawei can proudly announce a new OS on their own from scratch

FatShady, 22 Oct 2021no one cares, its practically another skin on top of androi... moreSkin? Harmony OS is not skin dude. Huawei has already Android skin called EMUI.

FatShady, 22 Oct 2021no one cares, its practically another skin on top of androi... moreBiibb your wrong, many of us care a lot and looking forward to get it.
No Google and a new life for my second mobile (Mate 20X). It don't get updates anymore, but will get a new life with the HarmonyOS.
So because you don't think much, some of us do and looking forward for it.

FatShady, 22 Oct 2021no one cares, its practically another skin on top of androi... moreUhmm. No. It's not a typical skin.

[deleted post]so freaking what?
when apple, google or Facebook are doing the same thing it is acceptable just because they are not Chinese companies right?
