Huawei announced that it will launch HarmonyOS (Hongmong OS) for smartphones in April. The company also confirmed that older smartphones will also get this latest operating system through software updates.
As the launch date of the upcoming P flagship product, the P50, approaches, more and more signs are appearing that this phone will be pre-equipped with HarmonyOS software.
And now, a report from China show that Huawei P50 has successfully completed the adaptation of the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile developer beta version and has entered the next stage of Beta 3 testing.
In addition, the report also suggested that the Huawei P50 may not be the first device to release the Hongmeng OS, but it will be the first Huawei mobile phone pre-installed with the Hongmeng OS.
A report shows that Huawei P50 will be launched in China on April 17, and the global press conference of the P flagship product is expected to be held in March. Therefore, we can assume that EMUI 11 will pre-install the global version, and the Chinese version will use Hongmeng OS. However, it is still waiting for the official announcement.
Last month, Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group, released the Huawei Mate X2 foldable mobile phone with two display systems and a new folding mechanism. During the event, he also announced that this foldable phone will be installed with Hongmeng OS for the first time in April.
Wang Chenglu, president of Huawei’s consumer business software department, said that Huawei will install Hongmeng OS in more than 200 million smartphones in 2021. In addition to these phones, the company will also install them on other consumer products and third-party devices. This year, the overall ecosystem of HarmonyOS devices will be expanded to more than 300 million units.
