Huawei is working on its HMS mobile services and operating system HarmonyOSwhile Xiaomi recorded many financial successes in the third quarter and became the third largest smartphone manufacturer.
A very important topic is the Internet of Things and the connection of individual devices to their own ecosystem. Huawei a Xiaomi apparently they went even further and introduced the operating system for the Internet of Things.

The Troubles of Huawei: HarmonyOS?
The Chinese Huawei presented the progress in the system at the development conference HarmonyOS, services HMS, but also EMUI a Hi Link. The manufacturer called on developers to work more actively to meet these systems and make them more popular.
Huawei has made rapid progress in the application ecosystem. Yu Chengdong (CEO of Huawei) announced at the developers' conference that Harmony OS 2.0 will be an "open-source" platform. At the end of the year, developers will receive a beta version of the smartphone and promised that Huawei smartphones will take full advantage of the Harmony system next year.
Models equipped with EMUI 11 will be upgraded to Harmony in the future. Compared to 2019, the global registered developers of HMS (Huawei mobile services) increased by 98% and reached a value of up to 1,8 million. The business model based on the new 5G connection will definitely play a role in terms of the arrival of developers.
Xiaomi and successful financial results
Mark Xiaomi recorded significant financial success in the third quarter of this year and is repeatedly praised for its third-place gain in the ranking of the largest smartphone manufacturers. Xiaomi has even been ranked in the TOP 5 in up to 50 countries and regions around the world.

Unlike a universal solution HarmonyOSwhich we will be able to see in a wide range of products, including smartphones, Xiaomi Sailing the system will focus mainly on products such as speakers, bracelets or smart watches.
Initially, it was said that it was Chinese Xiaomi that could passively support the competing HarmonyOS system. But now the situation is different, and as the Xiaomi engineer put it: "Xiaomi's passive approach to HarmonyOS is very small."
Xiaomi also mentions Mi Miaoxiang as an application framework that could help improve applications across platforms. The goal is to bring a very fast and convenient connection between two devices, such as a smartphone and a smart TV.
