For Huawei, HarmonyOS is still advancing very quickly, and of course, the enthusiasm of users to upgrade is also very high. According to the latest report from CCTV News, as of August 6, the number of Huawei HarmonyOS 2 system upgrade users now exceeds 50 million. As of July 29, HarmonyOS 2 active users were just over 40 million. This means that in about one week, the system had 10 million more users. This is indeed another milestone for HarmonyOS.
Yu Chengdong previously promised that in the near future, Huawei Mate 9, P10, and other models will also be open for upgrades. However, the company now looks forward to more users joining the new era of the Internet of Things (IoT).
After Huawei officially announced the HarmonyOS system on June 2, it also launched the largest upgrade plan in its history. The company also announced that it will upgrade the HarmonyOS system for more than 100 devices before the second half of next year. These devices will include both Huawei and Honor smartphones, tablets, smart screens, and more. Furthermore, the company plans that over 300 million devices will have this system by the end of the year. Its schedule shows that out of this number, 200 million will be its own devices. The other 100 million devices will come from third-party manufacturers.
Huawei’s HarmonyOS is a microkernel-based distributed operating system for all scenarios. It was officially released at the Huawei Developer Conference in Dongguan on August 9, 2019.
