These Huawei devices will be upgraded to HarmonyOS

Huawei is finally making the big leap over to HarmonyOS.

Huawei has finally introduced its Android replacement officially with HarmonyOS 2.0. The company will be updating its most recent phones from Android later in the year as it attempts to regain lost ground after being placed on the U.S. entity list.

Huawei is positioning HarmonyOS as a better operating system than Android, and there's a good reason for that. While it remains based on the Android Open Source Project (on phones and tablets at least), Huawei being decoupled from Google leaves the company free to make all the modifications to Android it wants. Huawei touts its speed, battery, and overall performance improvements over its EMUI-based devices, and it'll be curious to see if these benefits will translate to tangible improvements for regular users over the best regular Android phones.

Alongside its announcement, Huawei has shared a list of all phones which will be updated to HarmonyOS — and it's pretty extensive. Even phones as old as the Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei P10 will be updated to the new operating system. The Chinese models of any phone on this list will get it first, but the company plans on rolling it out through the first half of 2022. Depending on how old your phone is, you may find yourself waiting for a long time.

Here all the devices being updated in Q2 and Q3 2021

Huawei is updating all of its most recent flagships to Harmony OS as fast as it can. This means that the company's most engaged fans and loyal customers will be on the new operating system before the end of the year. Expect devices like the P40 and P40 Pro Plus to be on HarmonOS by the end of June, with older devices picking it up towards the end of the summer or even into the fall. As always, Chinese devices will get it first, but updates to European devices should follow shortly after.

HarmonyOS is one of the biggest things to happen within the Android world in a long time. Will the OS end up a niche one like Amazon's Fire OS, will it fizzle out like BlackBerry, or will Huawei truly create a third ecosystem by virtue of being a pretty rich company, having the third-largest app store, and stubborn pride? Only time will tell.
