Since the official release of HarmonyOS back in June, the rollout and adoption rate of this system has been massive. According to Huawei, the rollout of this system will be the largest in the company’s history. The Chinese manufacturer’s target is that 200 million Huawei / Honor users will have this system by the end of the year. However, from recent reports, it appears that Huawei will hit its target for this year. The latest report shows that Huawei’s HarmonyOS 2 upgrade users now exceed 90 million. This new figure is coming just two days after the system hit 70 million.
It is obvious that exceeding the 100 million mark for Huawei will not be a problem. As of now, over 90 Huawei and Honor models now have this update. Out of this number, 56 are old models from Huawei and Honor. While some of these smartphones have the internal beta, others are already enjoying the public beta. For now, only flagship Huawei smartphones have the public stable version of HarmonyOS 2.
HarmonyOS 2 adoption rate is very high
Huawei predicts that by the end of 2021, there will be more than 300 million HarmonyOS connected devices. Of this number, 200 million will be Huawei/Honor devices while 100 million will be from third-party partners.
According to reports, the HarmonyOS 2 system uses a large number of distributed technology, supports multi-camera mode, multi-device combined photography, mobile phones, tablets, watches, and even drones can all be interconnected. In addition, in terms of performance, Huawei has made a lot of optimizations on the bottom layer of HarmonyOS 2, which has increased the performance by 42% while saving more power.
According to the company, after 36 months of use, the sequential read speed of HarmonyOS 2 will drop by only 4.5%. This is better than iOS which drops by 75% over the same period. The sequential write speed of HarmonyOS 2 will drop 0.9%. Also, the random reads and writes will drop by less than 5%. This decline in the iOS system is about 20% to 30%.
Huawei officially released the HarmonyOS 2 for smartphones and other devices on June 2. Within the first week, by June 9, we already had over 10 million HarmonyOS users. In two weeks, this operating system had over 18 million users. After a month of upgrade, HarmonyOS had over 25 million users. Before the end of July, this figure increased to over 40 million. In less than two months, as of early August, this operating system had over 50 million users. Now, the latest report shows that HarmonyOS 2 now has over 70 million users. It is obvious that this system will have well over 100 million users before the end of this year. This upgrade is Huawei’s largest system update in its history.
