Chinese software maker – Runhe Software recently announced that the HiHopeOS operating system has achieved basic functionality for smartphone use cases starting with OpenHarmony 3.1 LTS. After this success, the software publisher plans to cooperate with smartphone manufacturers.
According to the information, Runhe Software has completed the test of OpenHarmony features powered by 4G chipset. It also confirms that OpenHarmonyOS 3.1 can be used for smartphone products.
Why is this achievement important?
Well, native OpenHarmony support without including a traditional library will boost the use of full/pure OpenHarmony based OS usage. So, instead of using multiple software libraries, the manufacturer will have full control over the software.
Runhe Software’s HiHopeOS currently supports smartphone-level user experience, including calling, messaging, sending and receiving emails, instant messaging, music playback, note taking and the use of different applications.
In terms of chipset, the HiHopeOS uses chipset with LTE CAT4, integrates Mali GPU, DPU, GSP and other graphics acceleration hardware, supports FDD/TDD-LTE, WCDMA, GSM wireless communication mode and Wi-Fi/BT and other remote wireless transmission technology.
It has 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, while it is equipped with a dual front and rear camera system, touch screen, speaker, microphone, a SIM card, an SD card slot, a battery and all the additional features that allow a smartphone.
It is expected that the new HiHopeOS can be used for a variety of scenarios, including smart payment, robotics, smart home and other technology fields.
Let’s see in detail what the system can currently do at full capacity:
Call capacity: Built-in high integration supports LTE CAT4 SoC, supports FDD/TDD-LTE, WCDMA, GSM wireless communication modes, supports calling, sending and receiving text messages.
Cellular network: The onboard 4G CAT4 SoC supports cellular data module, cellular data management, network interaction, etc., and adds cellular data browsing depending on the carrier’s network.
Web browser: It integrates a web browser application based on the scene model and related interfaces to realize web page access.
Distributed Capacity: Support distributed software bus, distributed application flow, distributed database, distributed data object, support local database access and database access inter-applications, as well as other features.
Currently, the basic system adaptation and peripheral adaptation of the domestic 4G chip platform has been completed, including the adaptation of basic peripherals such as UART, IIC and SPI, and the adaptation of features such as audio, voice, video, camera, LCD. , and GPUs.
The development of features such as making calls, sending text messages, sending and receiving emails (cellular network), instant messaging (cellular network), playing music and reading video was added.
