This year, the story of Huawei continues to fight and struggle a lot of difficulties in the face of U.S. sanctions. Yet, it’s doing it well and forging ahead with the will to survive.
Talking of the start, this year, Huawei launched its second-gen foldable phone Huawei Mate X2 powered by Kirin 9000 processor and a brand new design mechanism consisting of two displays – one on the rear and the other on the main side.
But the main topic of discussion is HarmonyOS, which the Chinese company officially unveiled on June 2 and also began the adaptation process in the home ground.
Huawei has a huge roadmap in work for this new operating system and every eligible device owner is now wondering when their device will get to test the new features offered by the HarmonyOS.
The hype is real and it’s really high, to be mentioned Huawei has not revealed a roadmap for the global models, which is one of the main reasons, why the global users are concerned about the timeline as well as the rollout procedure.
At the event, Huawei also revealed a number of new smart devices including the Huawei Watch 3 series, MatePad Pro, MatePad 11, and the 4G variants of the top flagships powered by HarmonyOS.
These are just a few new products that made their debut and there’s a lot more to come as we enter the second half of this year.
