Huawei announces the launch of the operating system HarmonyOS
Huawei has finally made the highly anticipated announcement of the HarmonyOS operating system. Only available on Chinese devices, HarmonyOS will be available to users in the global version.
As of now, Huawei HarmonyOS is already available on many different devices in China. This includes smartphones, smart home devices, and more. However, the company has not yet released it globally for its phones outside of China. But this situation appears to change soon.
According to a HuaweiCentral report, Romanian daily Adevarul recently gave an interview to Derek Yu, Huawei’s CB President for Central, Eastern Europe, Northern Canada, and Turkey. During this interview, Yu mentioned that the Chinese tech giant may release its own operating system to its global users next year. Currently, there are more than 140 smartphones and tablets with this operating system.
Huawei issues the awaited announcement of the operating system HarmonyOS.
However, its global rollout has yet to be officially announced. The official added that the current version of HarmonyOS is mainly focused on Chinese users, but it has already been installed by more than 100 million users.
The company first announced the operating system during the Huawei Developer Conference in 2019, highlighting its cross-platform functionality. Last year, HarmonyOS 2.0 was officially announced with a number of improvements along with an expansion of the list of devices that support the operating system.
Earlier this year, the third version of HarmonyOS 3.0 was announced, with the first beta preview set for the first quarter of 2022. The arrival of the global version may also occur in 2022.
