The rollout of Huawei’s HarmonyOS has been massive, even faster than the company anticipated. Today, Huawei officially announced that HarmonyOS 2 currently has over 100 million active devices. The company is also expecting many more devices to get this update. According to Huawei, it will have over 300 million HarmonyOS 2 devices by the end of this year. However, after hitting 100 million much earlier, the company had to review this target. Huawei’s new target is to get over 400 million HarmonyOS 2 devices before the end of this year.
HarmonyOS 2 is now available for almost 100 Huawei and Honor models. In late September, old smartphones like Huawei Mate 9 series, Huawei P10 series, Huawei tablet M5 series, Huawei nova 3, Huawei Enjoy 9 Plus, and other models will start Harmony 2 closed beta recruitment.
