The President of Huawei Consumer Business Group held a TEDx presentation in Shenzhen, China, where he outlined future plans for the company’s Mobile and IoT division. Dr. Wang Chenglu confirmed that “Many devices” will be able to migrate to Harmony OS 2.0 by June 2021…
The head of the company expects that by the end of the calendar year 300 million smartphones, tablets and other devices IoT will be powered by Harmony OS.
Following this statement by Mr.Chenglu, a message appeared on the Huawei Product Fan Forum that the release of the flagship series of smartphones P50 will be postponed to Juneso she can become a Harmony pioneer. The flagships will be launched alongside the MatePad Pro 2 tablet, which will also run the new OS out of the box.
Earlier it was reported that Huawei and Honor devices with EMUI 11 and Magic UI 4 may switch to Harmony OS 2.0… However, some Chinese sources claim that this will only be for devices based on Kirin processors. This means phones with Snapdragon or Mediatek chipsets won’t get the new operating system.
Honor 9X device, which tests Huawei’s own OS, already in beta 3.0… This means that the Chinese manufacturer is actively developing its internal ecosystem. The software suite is also available for the P40, Mate 30 and MatePad Pro devices, but for the time being only for the Chinese version of the devices.
Once Huawei is ready to roll out in the Middle Kingdom, hopefully HarmonyOS 2.0 will end up sooner or later will become global…
