On June 2, Huawei officially released the HarmonyOS 2.0 operating system, which is designed for smartphones, tablets, smart TVs and many other devices, and also began rolling out updates for various gadgets.
As it turned out, Huawei has already changed its plans for this year, making them more ambitious. Wang Chenglu, president of Huawei Consumer Business Group’s software development department, said 360 million smartphones, tablets and other IoT devices will be running the new Harmony OS 2.0 operating system by the end of the calendar year. Back in the spring, he voiced another bar of 300 million devices.
HarmonyOS 2.0 has now been installed on over 9 million devices, Wang Chenglu said. The company wants to reach 1.23 billion devices next year.
He also hopes 1.2 million developers will join the Harmony ecosystem this year. At the moment there are already more than 600 thousand of them. The goal for the next year is 10 million developers.
