Chinese technology company Huawei has had its share of problems globally, but in the local market the company is still a significant player. The company’s own HarmonyOS, which is only available in China as HongMengOS, could hit more global markets from next year, according to a report from HuaweiCentral, based on a newspaper interview with Derek yu, President of Huawei CB for Eastern and Central Europe, Northern Canada and Turkey. The interview was carried out by the Romanian daily ‘Adevarul’.
In the interview, Yu reportedly stated the possibility of HarmonyOS launching for devices outside of China in 2022. He also pointed out that even after the current version of HarmonyOS has focused primarily on users in China, the operating system has been installed by over 100 million users.
Huawei’s HarmonyOS is currently spread across a range of devices, with over 140 smartphones, tablets, smart screen devices and more. The operating system has seen a number of new releases, the latest being HarmonyOS 3.0 and its first preview beta is slated for the first quarter of 2021. Since the Google ecosystem does not support Huawei devices outside of China, HarmonyOS could build a stronger case. for the purchase of a Huawei device outside its country of origin.
