It uses the microkernel-based distributed OS with a modular design. Apps that are built for HTML5, Linux and Android will be able to function on HarmonyOS. The company also said that developers can use their own ARK compiler with compatibility for Java, C/C++, JS, Kotlin, and all programming languages. This flexibility helps Huawei achieve its goal of developing an OS that provides a seamless experience across different devices.

Huawei said that it will be smoother than other OS that is easier to develop and update due to its design. It is an open-source OS with secured apps.

It also has Deterministic Latency Engine and Inter Process Communication to address any potential underperformance challenges.

It means that resources will be allocated to tasks with high priority in advance which then improves responsiveness by 25.7 percent. 

Deterministic Latency Engine sets task execution priorities and time limits for scheduling in advance.

Harmony OS 1.0 will be available in 2019. Harmony OS 2.0 and 3.0 will launch in 2020 and 2021.
