A Chinese blogger has shared a video of a Lumia 950XL running HarmonyOS kernel. The OS uses Huawei’s open source OS library, and if you watch the video, you’ll notice that only the core is running and the home screen doesn’t seem to be accessible.
The Chinese blogger cannot use the graphic interface of Lumia 950XL with HarmonyOS operating system, but after successful loading, it is possible to access the software services of the Huawei platform.
The open source version of HarmonyOS is managed by the OpenAtom Foundation. This operating system is intended for developers of smartphone manufacturers who plan to use it in their smart ecosystems. Therefore, you must have the necessary technical knowledge to install HarmonyOS on old devices.
Of course, we hope that in the near future there will be easier ways to install HarmonyOS on old phones, such as Microsoft’s Lumia 950XL is available. This smartphone uses 32 GB of storage memory and is equipped with a Snapdragon 810 chip. Other features of this product include 3 GB RAM; Specifications that still look better than some low-end phones today.
