Users can upgrade three device capacities including 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB at the discounted price that is charged on the basis of storage after the upgrade.

Somehow this campaign will prove to be a great help in the establishment of the HarmonyOS as it only relies on the company smartphone for the moment. Besides, Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group has announced that HarmonyOS has been installed on over 40 million devices showing the steady development of the operating system.
However, the smartphone chip shortage is still a problem in the smartphone industry and with Huawei’s current situation it only gets worst. The rise in the self-sufficient semiconductor chain is the only hope for the company to shine again.
