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.
