Huawei is set to soon start updating its smartphones with HarmonyOS. Although, the exact models that were planned to be updated were not specified. But now, a new leak has suggested that the company will be bringing its proprietary operating system to devices running the HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor and higher.
According to @长安数码君 on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging website, the consumer electronics maker will be updating devices that include processors like Kirin 810, Kirin 820, Kirin 820E, Kirin 980, Kirin 990, Kirin 985, Kirin 9000 processors. In other words, any chip above the Kirin 710 SoC might be guaranteed to be upgraded to HarmonyOS. Although, keep in mind that this is just an unconfirmed list, so it is subject to change in the future.
It was previously announced that the Chinese tech giant will cover 200 million smartphones. Furthermore, in the social media post, the tipster also shared images highlighting which processors were eligible for the upgrade. For those unaware, HarmonyOS is the company’s self developed operating system that was announced after the company lost access to Google Mobile Services due to US sanctions
Lastly, it is still likely that the company would rather include more recently launched devices in the list, since these were the ones that did not ship with Google services out of the box. Unfortunately, this is still just a leak so take this report with a pinch of salt and stay tuned for more, as we will be providing updates when additional information is available regarding the update list.
