Yesterday, at the official launch of the Huawei P50 series, Yu Chengdong, CEO of the Consumer BG at Huawei Technologies, revealed that 40 million Huawei users now have HarmonyOS 2 system. This system started rolling out on June 2 which means that it has been rolling out for less than two months. At this pace, it shows that 8 new users get upgrades to HarmonyOS every second.
