Huawei P50 Launch Delayed To May, Will Run Exclusively on HarmonyOS


The eagerly awaited Huawei P50 series launch has been delayed to May. Huawei’s flagship device in the P series is slated to launch with new features and will come in three models that include the Huawei P50 Pro+, P50 Pro and P50.

Huawei P50 series will launch with the company’s new Harmony OS that will officially launch in April this year.

Huawei P50 will launch with a new camera module that is set to pack the largest camera sensor and improve on the great photography abilities the Huawei’s P series are known for.

Huawei P50 will be powered by Kirin 9000L and boasts of improved performance.

Huawei has yet to launch a new device running Harmony OS 2.0 as the company is planning to launch the Huawei P50 series with the new OS already pre-installed.

Huawei is planning to roll out Harmony OS 2.0 to over 300 million devices by the end of the year. Huawei will showcase the official rollout roadmap later next month.

HarmonyOS 2.0 is set to be used for other applications since it performed relatively faster compared to other operating systems.

It’s worth noting that Harmony OS is just a forked version of Android.

HarmonyOS 2.0 is expected to be launched during Huawei Developer Conference 2021(HDC 2021) that will be held in China from Aril 24th to April 26th.

These 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.

Huawei’s AppGallery and HMS have over 530 million monthly active users and 2.3 million registered developers globally respectively.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Meizu is reportedly in talks with Huawei to use the company’s HMS core. We’ll probably see HarmonyOS run on a Meizu smartphone some time in the near future.

We’ll update this article when the details are confirmed in the coming days.
