Launching Gizmo China, Tuesday (07/16/2019), Huawei has filed a trademark for another name for the operating system to arrive, Harmony. Applications are submitted by Huawei to the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) on July 12, 2019, and are currently under investigation.

Harmony Operating System
The description of the description above suggests that Huawei seems to be trying to make a cross-platform operating system compatible with desktops and smartphones.
Previously, Huawei had an OS trademark called HongMeng in China. But, then the operating system was revealed to be for the Internet of Things (IoT) device, as reported by The Next Web.
The effort to make an alternative Android operating system is actually not only done by Huawei. Previously, companies such as Microsoft also made an alternative OS by presenting a Windows Phone.
However, Windows Phone has not been able to match the popularity of Google’s Android OS. In fact, Microsoft decided to turn off Windows Phone.
