Although there is a lot of talk about it and its future, the truth is that only a handful of people can enjoy HarmonyOS at the moment. Its launch in China makes it possible to have it on mobiles, tablets and home appliances, but only advanced users outside of that country manage to install it on their mobiles unofficially.
However, Huawei wants to change that soon. How do you intend to do it? Easy, Huawei will release HarmonyOS for everyone in 2022. Is there already a date for this to become a reality?
HarmonyOS will arrive in Spain and the rest of the world in the first quarter of 2022
During the Huawei Nova 9 launch in Vienna, Derek Yu was asked by the Romanian newspaper Adevarul about the arrival of HarmonyOS on the global market. Given this, the president of Huawei CB for Central and Eastern Europe replied that the launch of HarmonyOS outside of China would be scheduled for next year. Specifically, Yu stated that Huawei’s operating system will be available during the first quarter of 2022although he did not say much more about the date.
The question makes a lot of sense, since it is not only the market waiting for said launch. Also, the Huawei Nova 9 arrives in Europe with Android 11 and EMUI 12, while China does have HarmonyOS 2.0 from the beginning.
According to Yu himself, more than 100 million users are already testing HarmonyOS on their devices and the experience seems to be very satisfactory. In fact, he notes that the level of user satisfaction increased by 10% after moving from Android to HarmonyOS. So far the Huawei system is available on more than 140 devices. Among them, the company’s mobiles stand out, but there are also numerous tablets and smart gadgets.
As for the software itself, HarmonyOS 2.0 was announced in the middle of the year and came with numerous improvements, although it still has a lot of Android and EMUI under the hood. In addition, HarmonyOS 3.0 was recently announced and its first beta will be released in the first quarter of 2022. Will it coincide with the global launch? We will be attentive to any detail from Huawei.
