We’re about to see the grand finale of the HarmonyOS rollout on Huawei smartphones. This rollout has been initiated after the launch of this Huawei operating system and now reached over 100 devices. Although, Huawei has kept HarmonyOS limited to the Chinese market but the fans expected that this new OS will eventually drop for the global users.
The HarmonyOS rollout is quite interesting and it has achieved great milestones in the entire process of upgrading the older variants. So, today let’s explore all of the HarmonyOS powered Huawei device list.
Before that let’s take a look at the HarmonyOS saga:
Initially launched at Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) 2019, HarmonyOS is a multi-kernel operation system designed to work across different devices among the Huawei device ecosystem. This new software comes with a bunch of new features and it has distributed technology prowess.
However, the deployment of HarmonyOS in devices only took place initially on Smart Screen (smart TVs) that later became a major success in the Chinese market.
In 2020, Huawei finally introduced – HarmonyOS 2.0 during the HDC 2020 event. This time, HarmonyOS added an excessive amount of supporting platforms that will work in harmony with each other. These include tablets, smartwatches, smart car systems, IoT devices, and the much-awaited – Smartphones.
Moving on, Huawei started HarmonyOS Developer beta testing on smartphone devices, which raised high hopes among Huawei smartphone users. However, the most interesting event took place in June, when the Chinese tech maker announced the launch of HarmonyOS 2.0 for mobiles.
At the launch conference, Huawei showcased a massive roadmap that consist of new to “way too old” devices such as Mate 9 and P10. Talking about the progress, Huawei has already completed 150 million upgrades in the process.

Huawei HarmonyOS needs this feature from Android 12
HarmonyOS comes with a bunch of new features that are built around the operating system and bring ease of accessing smartphone users. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about accessibility on this OS but there is one feature that Huawei HarmonyOS should be considering taking from Android 12.
So, what’s that one feature? Well, actually we’re talking about the dynamic color system powered by the Material You design. Although, the Material You on Android 12 has deep integration into the operating system but it’s worth mentioning that Huawei should adopt it on HarmonyOS for its consumers.
Android 12 is the latest installment from Google and many smartphone makers has already started shifting their smartphone to Android 12 but dynamic colors from Material You is the only feature that keeps them on the toe.
Going for the simple terms, the new feature system allows users to change the system colors and apply a better one. Most interestingly, it can adapt and generate color pallets based on your phone’s wallpaper, which is actually very cool.
There are two types of colors you can choose from:
- Wallpaper colors
- Basic Colors
First Let’s talk about the Wallpaper colors.
These will lead you to the color palette generated from the wallpaper of your phone’s home screen including a Primary, an accent, and a Dark mode color.
Second, Basic colors:
These are solid colors that will be applied solely throughout the system.
Aside from the colors, the feature will let you customize the system icons that will be applied to the app icons.
Where these changes will appear?
The change in dynamic colors will appear throughout the user interface and system including quick settings, dialer, app icons, Settings menu, and even in apps.
These changes in the user interface are surely amusing, even if Huawei cannot inherit the Material You design, it could add an extra flavor of customization with dynamic color themes.
