Here is HarmonyOS 3.0: all the news about Huawei’s operating system

SoftwareThe time has finally come to take a look at HarmonyOS 3.0 , the latest version of Huawei’s operating system that adapts to many devices, including smartphones , tablets and smartwatches: in recent months we have often spoken of this OS (especially its success in China), but now the Chinese company has unveiled all the novelties of HarmonyOS 3.0 to the world. Let’s obviously start with the graphic style: the widgets exploit the so-called Universal Card Design, which allows the different elements of the interface to adapt to any screen size and also allows the widgets to form a stack that user can scroll (widget style). iOS) when not all elements are visible on the screen. In general, the entire operating system interface follows a graphical style that relies heavily on transparencies, rounded edges and buttons, and bright colors. Other innovations include the ability to connect two pairs of Bluetooth headsets to the same device and the ability to share the password of the Wi-Fi network it is connected to with other nearby smartphones. In addition, system optimization has been improved and applications now open much faster, consume less power and are more responsive.

The operating system introduces a new function for privacy: HarmonyOS 3.0 in fact keeps a log that lists all the different accesses to the position, camera, microphone, contacts or internal memory of the applications installed on the device . This information is then presented to the user in the form of graphs and it is obviously possible to revoke certain authorizations for “suspicious” applications. Also in the area of ​​security, Huawei has introduced the ability to automatically remove all photo metadata, which contains potentially sensitive information like where an image was taken, when sharing. Additionally, the system can analyze saved gallery screenshots to remove personal information such as addresses, phone numbers, or bank account numbers.

With HarmonyOS 3.0, comes the ability to create “super devices”: essentially, you can connect multiple compatible devices to perform various operations quickly and easily. For example, by creating a super device consisting of a smartphone or PC and Huawei smart display, it is possible to mirror the screen to the big screen by simply pressing a button, or by connecting tablet and smartphone together, it is possible to reply to SMS directly from the tablet. The possibilities for “super devices” don’t end there: Huawei has also hinted at the possibility of connecting smart speakers to smart TVs to create a high-level audio system, or the possibility of connecting a smart treadmill to your smartwatch to monitor training extremely quickly. Finally, Huawei also mentioned the possibility of connecting the smartphone to the car, to create something similar to what happens with Android Auto.
