As for now, Huawei has not revealed the official details about HarmonyOS 3.1 or HarmonyOS 4’s features and user interface.

HarmonyOS is aiming 2 billion devices by 2023
HarmonyOS is currently ruling as the China-exclusive (majorly) operating system and Huawei is looking to install HarmonyOS in 2 billion devices by 2023.
