Huawei unveiled a new operating system called “Harmony” at the company’s 2019 developer conference on Friday, marking the Chinese smartphone giant’s latest step toward creating its own software ecosystem.

Known as Hongmeng in Chinese, HarmonyOS is a microkernel-based, distributed operating system that can be used on smartphones, wearable devices, laptops, and other devices, the company said.

HarmonyOS will be an open source-system, said Yu Chengdong, Huawei’s head of consumer business, at the event in the southern city of Dongguan, where the company has a key manufacturing site.

“We’re going to build a global operating system instead of one used merely by Huawei, so we are going open-source to allow developers around the world to participate in building a leading operating system for the next generation,” Yu said.
