Important announcement for Huawei customers
Telecommunications equipment company Huawei has announced the replacement of the operating system Harmony OS in its phones. Huawei introduced this operating system in the year 2019.
According to the international website, Dr. Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, has confirmed that from June 2021, several devices will be transferred to Harmony OS 2.0.
Speaking at an event in China, he said that by the end of 2021, 300 million smartphones, tablets and other Internet of Things devices will have Harmony OS.
Note that in May 2019, as a result of US sanctions, Huawei was denied access to Google apps and services. The company then introduced its operating system Harmony OS in 2019, but it has not yet been made part of smartphones.
It is believed that the flagship of the P50 series may be Huawei’s first phones to have Harmony OS pre-installed in place of Android.
The phones were originally slated to be launched in March, but the new announcement indicates that the P50 series will be launched in June.
Earlier, various reports had hinted that devices running on Huawei’s EMUI would be switched to Harmony OS 2.0. However, now there are reports that only phones with Karen processor will be switched to the new operating system.
