Huawei users are wondering when they can upgrade their smartphones to the new operating system. Wang Chenglu, head of the company’s Consumer Business Group, explained this matter. At the TEDx conference in China, Chenglu made an exciting statement HarmonyOS 2.0.
The anticipated announcement for HarmonyOS 2.0 has arrived
Wang Chenglu announced that until June 2021, many Huawei-made phones will switch to HarmonyOS 2.0. Chenglu said the operating system will not be limited to smartphones. He shared the information that other devices in Huawei’s IoT ecosystem will also host HarmonyOS.
Referring to the company’s goals for 2021, Wang Chenglu stated that he expects 300 million phones, tablets and IoT products to be operational with HarmonyOS at the end of the year. In addition to smartphones, the HarmonyOS operating system will be fully compatible with Internet of Things (IoT) devices, especially smart TVs, smartwatches and cars.
P50 will be the first phone to come out of the box with HarmonyOS
Since the release HarmonyOS 2.0, Huawei has yet to introduce a ready-to-use phone with this operating system. According to a leak shared on the Chinese social media platform Weibo, the P50 will be the first phone the company will offer HarmonyOS preloaded.
According to some sources, Huawei will release the P50 series with Android and HarmonyOS 2.0 options. Huawei, which is expected to introduce the phone to the Chinese market only with its own operating system, is expected to include Android in the global market. The company leaves the choice entirely to the user.
Huawei is also strengthening software support
Unable to use Android and Google services due to the US embargo, Huawei didn’t just develop the operating system. It has also developed its own mobile services under the brand name “Petal”. Among the services the company has launched are Petal Maps, Petal Search, and Petal Docs.
The company is expanding its product range with new services and is developing two more services, Petal Mail and Petal Translate. These services, whose testing process is ongoing, will soon be deployed along with mobile applications.
