Huawei operating system HarmonyOS smartphones 2021 after Trump's veto - Huawei will have its own operating system, HarmonyOS, on the phones and devices of the brand, as announced this Thursday the company and has advanced CNBC. This change will be made in 2021.
The move comes more than a year after U.S. restrictions on the Chinese manufacturer, which banned U.S. companies from selling their solutions to Asia. So, one of the main limitations that Huawei encountered is that it could not count on Google's interface on its devices, Android.
Currently, the Chinese brand assembles their phones and installs free Android operating systems, so they can not access the Google Play App Store.

Chinese technology introduced its operating system for the first time in 2019 and this Thursday has released its second version, HarmonyOS 2.0. The update is compatible with smartphones and other devices, such as smart watches or televisions. And not only with Huawei's terminals, it is also open to other competitors, according to the same source.
Developers will also have access to HarmonyOS 2.0 to make their own application deployments. In fact, Huawei's challenge lies precisely in getting the apps to its store, so that it offers the same variety as its competitors and includes the main ones.
However, this is still to be seen, when the brand will definitely include its interface on mobiles and other devices. In any case, Huawei's operating system is an alternative to Google's and may also be in the event that U.S. restrictions affect other companies.

A European company is developing a graphene technology that would allow charging a car battery in 15 seconds
Building a battery capable of charging in 15 seconds using graphene and ultracapacitors is the goal of the German-Estonian company Skeleton Technologies, which has partnered with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany) to complete the development of what they have already dubbed the 'Super Battery'.
How do you get this ultra-fast charging time? According to this company is due to the use of curved graphene carbon, a material patented by this European company that allows the ultracapacitors of the battery to be charged at high power and have a longer service life, since they can have hundreds of thousands of charging cycles.
However, graphene ultracapacitors are not a battery that serves on its own, but a supplement to a lithium-ion battery. They could be applied both in hybrid cars, to reduce fuel consumption and therefore carbon dioxide emissions, and in pure electric, in which it could help reduce the dimensions of batteries and their cooling systems, which would allow to reduce their costs and have a longer service life.
This technology, developed with the financial support of the European Union platform EIT InnoEnergy, which invested EUR 4 million in this technology and also funds the Swedish battery manufacturer Northvolt, will now be supported by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany), with the aim of developing a model that can be launched to the market.
"Cooperation between European battery companies is key to making the European Union a global leader in the sector, "Skeleton CEO Taavi Madiberk said in a statement, in which he was" enthusiastic "about" combining forces " with the German Institute.
The European company has already caught the attention of several manufacturers, to the point of having a signed agreement of 1 billion euros with "a leading manufacturer of the automotive sector" to bring its technology to the market of electric vehicles.
For Madiberk, the' Super Battery ' will "change the rules" of the automotive industry. "Next to a lithium-Ion battery, we'll have it all: high energy, power density, long life and 15 seconds of charge," he added.
