Huawei’s HarmonyOS 2.0 hit 90 million users ten days ago, and today the company has accomplished yet another milestone: 100 million devices have been updated to the in-house operating system. These devices used to run Android, but their owners decided to abandon it.
For the 6th wave of Android-to-Harmony updates, Huawei is looking for beta testers. These upgrades are what has caused the rapid increase in Harmon users. The company intends to migrate about 100 devices, with the process expected to go until 2022.
There are currently 106 in total, with 75 of them being phones from the P40, Mate 40, and Mate 30 series. The P20 and Mate 10 series, as well as the Nova 5i and 4e, are older flagships that have lately joined the party. Huawei is expanding the public beta test with more models, while also conducting an internal test for other devices.
Keep in mind that the 100 million figure only includes devices that have been updated to Huawei OS; there are newer phones, tablets, and smartwatches that come pre-installed with the operating system. HarmonyOS also powers various smart devices (such as TVs) and IoT devices, with a laser printer being the most recent addition (as of an hour ago).
Harmony is more of a platform than an operating system, with one of its primary purposes being to facilitate device interoperability. The HarmonyOS Connect brand can be used by third-party manufacturers to produce compatible devices.
