HarmonyOS can detect the data cable and reduce the charging speed

Huawei’s system HarmonyOS has a charging protection feature that allows the system to detect fake chargers. If the charger in use is not original, there is a prompt to alert the user. However, this charger will not cause harm to the smartphone. HarmonyOS will ensure that the charger does not fast-charge the device even if it supports fast charging. This is because, at high charging speeds, the charger may be dangerous to the smartphone.


Some users of Huawei Mate 20X (on HarmonyOS) got a notification that reads “this data cable will reduce the charging speed, please use the officially recommended data cable and connect it correctly”. It also provides a link for users to click and learn more. Huawei Mall has official 5A USB Type-C and 5A / 6A USB Type-C data cables which are its official cables. 

After completing the HarmonyOS software upgrades, Huawei recommends that you charge the device for 30-60 minutes when idle. During charging,  the system will be deeply optimized to ensure the best HarmonyOS experience.

At the winter flagship new product launch conference on December 23, Huawei announced that the number of devices equipped with HarmonyOS now exceeds 220 million. In 2021, the shipment of ecological equipment will reach 100 million+.
