According to the president of Huawei’s consumer business software department, Wang Chenglu, there are more than 20 product categories and a total of 12 million third-party products that support the Hongmeng OS.

The company said that this system will be available for large-screen devices, watches, car machines etc. Howeber, the Hongmeng OS 2.0 Beta for mobile phones will be available in December. Huawei smartphones will fully support HarmonyOS in 2021.
In addition, HarmonyOS is officially open source, and developers will get emulators, SDK packages, and IDE tools. The beta version of HarmonyOS for smartphones will be available to Chinese developers at the end of 2020. Presently, there are a couple of Hongmeng smartwatches in testing.
