Huawei Technologies has recently made significant strides in the development of operating systems and artificial intelligence, surpassing the achievements of the United States and Europe in a fraction of the time. At the Developers conference in Dunguan, the chairman of the Huawei consumer business division, Richard Yu, announced that the Harmony operating system has already been installed on more than 900 million devices. Created in 2019 in response to American sanctions, Harmony has allowed Huawei to continue operating without access to Android.

In addition, Huawei’s ASCEND artificial intelligence has become the second most popular after NVIDIA products in the chip market. The company attributes this success to the opportunities presented by the era of the Internet of Things, which has allowed them to challenge the long-standing dominance of the US and Europe in the software field.

These advancements have not only been limited to tech developments. Following the release of the Mate 60 smartphone featuring an improved Chinese chip, sales of Harmony-based devices have seen a 68% increase in the first five months of the year. In the first quarter of 2024, HarmonyOS surpassed iOS to claim second place in the Chinese mobile operating system market with a 17% share.

These achievements underscore the growing potential of Chinese tech companies and their ability to compete with Western industry giants, even amidst sanctions and restrictions.
