r its self smartphones month roll harmony huawei out next os ending developed

ImranHuawei to roll out self-developed Harmony OS for smartphones next month, ending its r
Quote:Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co will deploy its HarmonyOS operating system on smartphones early next month in the latest move to shield its core smartphone business from US trade sanctions.

In a 15-second video posted on its official Weibo account, Huawei announced that it would release HarmonyOS 2.0 on June 2. The video, tagged “HarmonyOS smartphone is coming,” did not reveal if a new Huawei smartphone would be released at the same time.

When Huawei deploys its own operating system for smartphones, it will no longer be reliant on Google’s Android OS. Android and Apple’s iOS together account for almost 99 per cent of the global market share for smartphone operating systems, according to research firm Statista.

A Huawei spokeswoman said the June 2 launch was “a milestone for HarmonyOS development”, but declined to share further details.

The Shenzhen-based company has invested tens of millions of dollars developing HarmonyOS, which works on multiple devices and mainly targets applications for the Internet of Things (IoT). This is the first time Huawei has specifically given a timeline for the deployment of HarmonyOS in smartphones.

Huawei unleashes HarmonyOS in China, eyes multi-device ecosystem
Quote: Huawei Technologies is unleashing the latest iteration of its mobile operating system, HarmonyOS 2, across 100 of its devices in China, including smartphones, smart watches, and tablets. Consumers running older Android-based models will have the option to upgrade to HarmonyOS, but there are no concrete plans yet on when the OS will be available to users in Asia-Pacific or other regions. 

The Chinese hardware manufacturer on Tuesday said HarmonyOS 2 would immediately ship with its Mate 40 series and Mate X2, as well as the newly launched MatePad Pro and Watch 3 series. A second batch of devices will be given the option to upgrade to the mobile OS in the third quarter, including the Nova 6, 7, and 8 series, Mate 20 series, and MatePad 10. 

This list will be further expanded in the fourth quarter to include P30 and Nova 5 Pro, and again in the first quarter of 2022 to include the Mate9 and Mate10 series as well as the P10 and P20 series, Huawei said. 

It would mean that users with older Huawei smartphone models, such as Mate9 and P20, still running Google's Android OS could choose to switch over to HarmonyOS.
