  • HUAWEI will abandon Windows 10 in favor of its own OS


    As a result of US sanctions, HUAWEI began actively developing an alternative to Google services. But the company strives to minimize dependence on Western solutions not only in the mobile segment but also in the field of personal computers. That is why it intends to abandon Windows 10 in favor of its own OS.

    HUAWEI will abandon Windows 10 in favor of its own OS

    With the announcement of HarmonyOS, HUAWEI representatives said that this operating system will be a cross-platform solution and will be able to work on various devices, including smart watches, personal computers, and cars. Following its plan, this year the Chinese giant intends to start producing personal computers running HarmonyOS 2.0, abandoning Windows 10. In addition, instead of Intel and AMD processors, they will use Kunpeng chips of their own design.

    According to insiders, so far it is only about the release of such devices in the Chinese market. HUAWEI will probably be using Windows 10 for other regions.

    HUAWEI will abandon Windows 10 in favor of its own OS

    HUAWEI previously introduced the HarmonyOS operating system on smart TVs. As for smartphones, the company continues to install Android on them, but without Google’s mobile services, replacing them with its own alternative with the AppGallery app store.

      At IFA 2019, HUAWEI introduced the new flagship processor, the Kirin 990 5G. According to the manufacturer, this chipset has become the first in the world in many areas. In particular, this is the first 7-nm processor with a built-in 5G modem. The company also improved graphics performance and energy efficiency.

      According to HUAWEI, the capacity of the Kirin 990 5G in comparison with the Kirin 980 increased by 10% in single-core mode and by 9% in multi-core. In addition, the company promises best-in-class energy efficiency, so devices will last longer than competitors.
      Using the industry-leading 7nm + EUV technology, the Kirin 990 5G has become the industry’s most compact 5G mobile processor. In addition, it is also the first mobile chip with more than 10 billion transistors. Thanks to the built-in Balong 5000 modem, devices based on Kirin 990 5G will be able to download data via the Internet at speeds up to 2.3 Gb/s when connected to fifth-generation networks.
      Kirin 990 5G is also the first flagship chip with a dual-core neuroblock (NPU) based on the Da Vinci architecture, which includes large and small NPU cores. The former provides high performance and energy efficiency when performing heavy computing operations, while the latter, used for the first time in the industry, are responsible for performing tasks with ultra-low power consumption.

      The Kirin 990 5G central processor uses a three-tier structure to increase energy efficiency. It consists of two super-large cores with a frequency of 2.86 GHz, two large cores of 2.36 GHz and four low-power cores operating at a frequency of up to 1.95 GHz. As for the graphics subsystem, the Kirin 990 5G is the first to use the 16-core Mali-G76 graphics processor on the market. It is also worth noting the support for Kirin Gaming + 2.0 technology, which provides smoother gameplay and improved gaming performance.

      In addition to the Kirin 990 5G, the usual Kirin 990 will also be released, the main difference of which is the lack of 5G support. It is likely that the manufacturer will install these chips depending on the availability of fifth-generation networks in each country. The first devices based on the Kirin 990 5G will be the Mate 30 series smartphones and the folding Mate X.
      Together with the Kirin 990 5G and Kirin 990, HUAWEI also introduced the Kirin A1 processor, designed for wearable electronics, headphones and IoT devices. This is the world's first chip with support for Bluetooth 5.1 and Bluetooth 5.1 LE. The first device based on it was the new FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones.
