Huawei recently introduced the HarmonyOS Next με μια σημανwhatκή αλλαγή – δεν θα υπάρχει υποστήριξη για αρχεία APK, τα οποία είναι οι εγγενείς Android apps. Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei, revealed that the new operating system is ready to be released to end users, causing confusion among Huawei owners around the world.

A week after the announcement, the company issued a clarification that overseas units will not receive the new OS. Cell phones and tablets εκτός Κίνας θα συνεχίσουν να χρησιμοποιούν το EMUI – ένα όμοιο με το HarmonyOS, το οποίο βασίζεται στο Android Open Source Project, αλλά δεν διαθέτει υπηρεσίες και εφαρμογές Google και θα συνεχίσει να υποστηρίζει εγγενείς εφαρμογές Android.
According to China Mobile, Huawei will "continue to increase its support for developers around the world." The company has developed a huge community of app developers, who work exclusively to ensure that Android apps from third-party stores work properly on its non-Google phones.
Huawei executives have assured us multiple times, both on and off the record, that support for phones and tablets in global markets will continue to grow and the company still sees itself as a major software and hardware maker in the mobile world .
