Release According to the chipset:

The information further explains that the company will roll out HarmonyOS to EMUI 11 and Magic UI 4 devices and the time of the rollout for these phones will depend on their chipset. This could mean that the rollout will start in descending order, with flagship chipset will be considered to upgrade first and then middle range and so on.

All of the Huawei and Honor phones will receive HarmonyOS but Honor phones such as Honor V40 are currently not considered for this adaptation process because it was launched after Honor and Huawei separation.

Direct Rollout:

Aside from the eligible models, some phones will directly jump to the HarmonyOS mobile even with only EMUI 10.1 and Magic UI 3.1 builds. These include devices such as Huawei Nova 7 SE, Honor 30S, Honor X10, and more.

Moreover, Huawei phones that were launched with MediaTek processors, are currently not considered under the upgrade plan but this decision may change later and the official announcement may clear some more doubts.

One thing to note here, that the above-mentioned leaked information cannot be confirmed as official.
