The Chinese Huawei confirmed that the number of devices that support its new operating system, “HarmonyOS”, reached about 10 million smartphones in less than a week from its official launch on June 2, as an alternative to the Android system.
Huawei expects 360 million devices to run on HarmonyOS by the end of this year, and next year’s plan looks impressive with 12.3 billion devices expected.
If we take into account the use of HarmonyOS in home appliances and cars (as well as various types of mobile devices), this plan is quite realistic, and Huawei also hopes that 1.2 million developers will join the HarmonyOS ecosystem.
Currently, HarmonyOS 2.0 is primarily available for Mate 40, P40 and Mate 30 series smartphones, however it is also used for MatePad Pro tablets.
According to the latest data, the internal beta testing of HarmonyOS 2.0 for Huawei P30, Honor 30 and Honor V30 will begin this month, and a public beta version for these phones will be released in July.
The provision of the new Chinese operating system coincides with the escalation of the conflict between China and America, and the deprivation of “Huawei” from the services of American companies such as Android, in addition to imposing sanctions on it, which represents a great challenge for it, as the Chinese company hopes through its ecosystem, to overcome all that and challenge those penalties.
