Gizchina News of the week
HarmonyOS 2 adaptation history
Huawei officially released the HarmonyOS system on June 2nd. In the first week, by June 9, this system already had over 10 million 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. 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. As of early this month, the HarmonyOS 2 had over 150 million users in China. It is obvious that this system will have well over 300 million users before the end of this year. This upgrade is also Huawei’s largest system update in its history.
Unfortunately, there is no report with regard to when the HarmonyOS 2 will arrive in global models. In fact, Huawei is still maintaining the EMUI 12 on top of Android 10 for global versions.
