If you still remember, Huawei first announced the company’s proprietary operating system known as the HarmonyOS back in September 2019. During the initial phase, HarmonyOS was available only to IoT devices like smart screens, with Honor Vision being the first commercially available device to be powered by this platform.
Fast-forward to September 2020, Huawei then expanded its support to smartphones, and had since released beta versions of the HarmonyOS for mobile developers. Now, after waiting for nearly two years, the company has finally announced that the stable release for HarmonyOS will be coming in April next month.
While most of the latest smartphones like the Huawei P40 and Mate 40 series devices are likely to be upgradable to HarmonyOS, but the company specifically revealed that the Huawei Mate X2 will be the first smartphone to be updated to the highly anticipated platform.
Since the stable release kicks off in April, its also sort of indirectly confirmed that the upcoming Huawei P50 series smartphones will be running on the new HarmonyOS out of the box as well. For context, the Huawei P50 series is rumored to be launched in April or May later this year.
