Huawei HarmonyOS adaptation progress
The Huawei P50 flagship smartphone is the first device to come with this update out of the box. The Chinese manufacturer officially released the HarmonyOS 2 for smartphones and other devices on June 2. However, within the first three months of its release, it is already a sensation.
In 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. A new 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.
As of now, over 56 very old models from Huawei and Honor are already getting this update. Most of these devices wouldn’t have gotten any more major EMUI updates. According to Huawei, over 300 million devices (200 million Huawei devices and 100 million third-party devices) will have this update this year.
