Yes, we’re ready, and after a round of leaked information and rumors, Huawei has finally scheduled a launch event to introduce its home-grown operating system – HarmonyOS AKA Hongmeng OS for the general consumers.
According to the information, a well-known tipster from Weibo has now leaked the promo poster of the upcoming launch event that will be held on June 2 and the poster reveals that, at the event, Huawei will launch HarmonyOS for the public.
The event is themed as “Hongmeng operating system and Huawei’s full-scene new product launch conference” and will be held at 20:00 China time. This reflects that it could be a global launch conference but we’ll wait for more confirmation.
Furthermore, Huawei expected to bring us the roadmap of the HarmonyOS for its devices and a timeline that will be suitable for the upgrade.
However, Huawei has not made it clear from its side but the promo poster is quite real and so does the record of the tipster.
Currently, Huawei is conducting continues beta testing of the HarmonyOS under the developer beta testing program and the company is fault-finding all of the bugs and issues to keep the software package free from all of the problems that could be bigger when the software actually roll out for the general consumer.
