The combination of the latest HarmonyOS features lures smartphone owners, as its compatibility is decided to reach beyond 5 years old devices such as Huawei Mate 9 and P10. The longer and larger than ever hardware support enables a major boost in the installation of this new mobile operating system.
Even after its limited reach, HarmonyOS has announced to reach over 150 million installations post 5 months of its launch. This is a major milestone that has been achieved under the belt of progress and it’s quite an amazing portfolio for the Chinese tech maker as no other phone maker has conducted such a major upgrade procedure on any smartphones.
New Feature Rollout:
In the month of October, Huawei has also improved the HarmonyOS user experience with new features rollout via OTA software update. The latest update has great additions such as cross-device task center, new keyboard, service widgets optimizations, the addition of better third-party app compatibility, and more.
On top of that, Huawei has sent this rollout to almost every HarmonyOS powered device in China, which is a great piece of news and a big performance booster.
