Huawei has sold many devices overseas market, and these phone users also want to get the latest features offered by the HarmonyOS 2.0 software system. HarmonyOS 2.0 comes with the latest features and offers a new user interface consisting of various features to ease the use cases that is better than EMUI based on Android.

Furthermore, the global launch of HarmonyOS will create fear for Android, and its mark on Huawei devices will be closed and replaced with this new operating system.

However, the reach is only available to the Chinese consumers, while other consumers are waiting to hold the latest features in the name of excitement but we’ll have to wait a bit more to get the answer straight.
