Reports have it that the Huawei P60 series is expected to come with a new version of Huawei’s system, HarmonyOS. In fact, a recent report from a tech blogger claims that HarmonyOS 3.1 is already in internal testing.
The report claims that the new update mainly fixes existing bugs and improves system stability. Also, the new version 3.0 will not have a major OTA push for the time being.
It also mentions that the HarmonyOS 4.0 will come with major changes in the design of the system. At the same time, the system will also bring some new functions. Internally, this is a new beginning for Huawei.
Prior to this, a report by Strategy Analytics shows that mobile phones with the HarmonyOS system currently have a global market share of 2%. As little as this may sound, it is a huge win for Huawei because it is now the third-largest mobile phone system in the world behind only Android and iOS.
HarmonyOS Still Far Behind Android and iOS
In the current global market, Android is still the most used, with a current market share of 81%; followed by iOS, with a market share of 18%.
Both Android and iOS accounts for 99% of the mobile phone market share, which is still very exaggerated. For some reason, HarmonyOS’s market share is 2% at this time, and the total share exceeds 100%. Compared with 2017, the market share of Android has declined. In 2017, Android had a market share of 86%, compared with 14% for iOS. Five years later, Android is down 5% and iOS is up 4%.
Not long ago, Wang Chenglu, CEO of Shenzhen Kaihong Digital Industry Development Co., Ltd., delivered a keynote speech and reiterated that HarmonyOS is not Android, iOS, or a single-device operating system. If a single device uses HarmonyOS, it will not have much value.
