Chinese manufacturer, Huawei, has been releasing the HarmonyOS 2 system for its smartphones. As of now, no less than 150 million Huawei and Honor devices currently have the HarmonyOS 2 update. Unfortunately, the company is not releasing the HarmonyOS for global users yet. Its global users are still getting EMUI 12 on top of Android 11. The latest HarmonyOS 2 update report shows that Honor 9X is now getting this system (220.127.116.11 version).
Honor 9X HarmonyOS 18.104.22.168 update changelog
This update upgrades the service center and adds a new combination of scene-based services. Furthermore, it also enables similar services to be accessible with a single click. Also, this update improves the stability of the system. As usual, Huawei recommends that users of this device in China should get this update.
- In the service center (swipe up from the edge of the left or bottom right corner of the screen to enter), a scene-based service combination is added on the “Discovery” tab. When added to the desktop, it can automatically adapt to a universal card and get similar services with one click.

Xiaoyi input method can bring you a simple and safe input experience.

In less than two months, as of early August, this operating system had over 50 million users. As of August 30th, HarmonyOS had over 70 million active users. However, a few days later (September, 2nd), the company announced that it has over 90 million users.
As of September 13th, HarmonyOS users officially exceeded 100 million. By September 27th, Huawei HarmonyOS users had increased to 120 million.
