Huawei has already secured the top place in China’s smartphone market – thanks to the Mate 60 series’s booming sales. Meanwhile, HarmonyOS NEXT and Shenzhen’s 2024 action plan will inch the Chinese tech maker closer to more achievements.

Moreover, these efforts will strengthen HarmonyOS to overtake Apple’s iOS as the second-largest smartphone operating system in China this year. This initiative will also heat the rivalry with Google’s Android in the Chinese smartphone market.

Both these OS(s) are considered to dominate the global market for their impressive features and interesting tools. However, Huawei is working to make its self-developed operating system more reliable, smarter, and safer than its competitors.

The company is constantly joining hands with new firms to widen its HarmonyOS Ecosystem. Besides, groups like Baidu Maps are ready to share the SDK for HarmonyOS NEXT by the end of this month. Thus, we may witness a new milestone in the time ahead.
