Huawei recently launched HarmonyOS 2.0 in September this year.
The operating system is Huawei’s effort to have an alternative operating system to Google’s Android.
The Chinese tech giant that recently sold its Honor sub-brand released HarmonyOS 2.0 beta to developers to play around with.
HarmonyOS 2.0 is set to be used for other applications since it performed relatively faster compared to other operating systems.
Huawei devices slated to get HarmonyOS 2.0 update include the Huawei P40 series, the Mate 30 and 40 series and the MatePad series.
The upcoming Huawei P50 series set to launch in Q1 2021 will reportedly launch with HarmonyOS 2.0 right off the box and be the first Huawei smartphone to run on the new OS.
Huawei is planning to have the new OS on over 100 million devices by the end of next year.
These 100 million devices are not only from Huawei but other brands including Puffin Technology, Midea, Boss Appliances and Joyoung.
Huawei devices running HarmonyOS will support Android apps while the company grows its HarmonyOS ecosystem – and after it matures, Huawei will probably ditch Android.
We’ll update this article when the details are confirmed in the coming days.
