Huawei will launch HarmonyOS on mobiles in April

HarmonyOS is the operating system created by Huawei. Until now, the Chinese brand has used this system in connected devices for the home, but we have known for a long time that they have plans to use it on their phones as well and it is 2021 when this is going to happen. New data suggest that it will be from April when the phones receive it.

The Mate X2, the new foldable presented yesterday, will be the first of the brand's phones to have access to the operating system. Others will follow soon.


The HarmonyOS beta for some of the brand's mobiles was already launched in December, although it was limited to China. Huawei expects in April that the first mobiles will receive the stable version of the operating system, starting with its new foldable Mate X2. After this device, other flagships of the brand will receive this update officially.

The final version of the operating system has not yet been seen, although the previous ones have generated criticism because it is an exact copy of Android 10. Although the brand defended the use of open source options such as AOSP, on which Android is based.

We will therefore have to see what this final version of HarmonyOS is like when it is officially launched. Huawei is betting heavily on this operating system in a difficult year because its phone production is going to be cut in half due to poor sales. Will they be able to overcome their bad results?
