HarmonyOS operating system is an invention that is running wild in China. As of December 2, 2021, Huawei has installed this mobile OS on 141 smartphones, tablets, and smart screen devices. However, there’s more information that has just appeared for the global smartphones that are waiting for HarmonyOS, as it could happen in 2022.
Recently Romanian daily newspaper – Adevarul has published an interview with Derek Yu, President of Huawei CB for Central and Eastern Europe, Northern Canada & Turkey said that Huawei could launch HarmonyOS for global users in 2022.
Yu also mentioned the current version of HarmonyOS has been introduced mainly for China and already has gained over 100 million users. The software provides a satisfying user experience and users who switched from Android to HarmonyOS experienced by 10% increase in overall performance.
Launched at Huawei Developer Conference 2019 (HDC 19), HarmonyOS 2.0 is a multi-kernel operating system designed and developed by Huawei. This operating system comes with cross-platform capabilities that help it to connect different platforms together seamlessly and perform various actions. Initially, the OS only supported smart TVs and their features were quite limited.
However, the biggest surprise came in the form of HarmonyOS 2.0 that was launched in late 2020. The company introduced this version with expanded platform support and brings an extended range of features powered by distributed technology.
Still, the launch of HarmonyOS 2.0 for smartphones in June this year has raised eyebrows, as it adopts over 100 Huawei devices that range way too old in terms of hardware and specs. As of November, there are over 150 million users who are currently enjoying this software prowess in China.
Moving on, at HDC 2021, Huawei has introduced HarmonyOS 3.0 developer preview for the developers. However, the first preview beta will be tested in the first quarter of 2022. Thereafter, the Chinese tech maker will conduct public beta testings for this software and bring them to the consumers via the different testing programs.
However, it is also possible that Huawei could bring the HarmonyOS 3 version iteration for the global Huawei smartphone owners in 2022 but it’s yet to be confirmed officially.
