Wang Chenglu, president of Huawei's consumer business software division, said today that more than 20 product categories and a total of 12 million third-party products have supported HarmonyOS so far.
"Within a year, the number of these devices should increase to several hundred million," he said.
Huawei now sells more than 400,000 HMS-powered Huawei phones overseas each week, said Zhu Yonggang, CMO of Huawei's consumer business.
Huawei officially announced HarmonyOS 2.0 at the Huawei Developer Conference yesterday, and said it will launch Harmony OS 2.0 Beta for large-screen devices, watches, and car systems, and will release a mobile version in December, with full support for Harmony OS 2.0 on Huawei smartphones in 2021.
HarmonyOS will also be open-sourced, with emulators, SDK packages, and IDE tools available to developers, and a beta version of HarmonyOS for smartphones will be released to Chinese developers by the end of 2020.
Digital blogger @长安数码君 said today that HarmonyOS-powered watches are currently being tested and will be released within this year at the earliest.
