The Concord OS 2.0 is Huawei’s in-house platform that ought to be out there by June to clients. It’s already in the final stages of development, and we acquired a maintain of a video, showcasing how the OS appears to be like like on a Huawei Mate X2. Test it out:
At first it has a variety of similarities to Android, particularly across the notification bar and the way the icons are grouped and the way they give the impression of being. Swiping down wherever on the house display brings the search engine of the cellphone, and we anticipate Petal Search to be included for the worldwide units.
The management middle could be pulled down from the highest proper nook, whereas notifications include the identical gesture from the opposing facet.
The apps demoed are Huawei’s understanding of Calendar and Notes, and it seems the brand new OS can have a special type of widgets that can permit long-press with an upward swipe to offer extra data from sure apps with out opening them.
Nonetheless, there are nonetheless many unknowns. We’re questioning concerning the kernel of Concord OS 2.0 and whether or not any of it’s based mostly on Android – we’ve requested Huawei representatives a number of occasions about it, and so they all the time are hesitant to offer an easy reply, doubtless as a result of the system isn’t totally prepared and so they don’t need to challenge an announcement forward of time.
What we additionally don’t know is whether or not these gestures are reserved for tablets and foldable units or we can have three kinds of downward swipes even on smartphones with smaller screens. There are various unknowns however there’s a hope we’ll find out about them in a number of months’ time.
