Earlier today (1st March 2021), the official Weibo account, a Chinese micrblogging website, of Huawei EMUI officially shared that the company has successfully brought over more than 100 million users to its latest EMUI 11 OS, with “the next stop” being HarmonyOS (AKA HongMengOS in China).
On the social media post, the Chinese tech giant shared the news and also showcased its quick update cycle for its latest custom skin, which is based on the vanilla Android OS. For those unaware, EMUI 11 was first announced at the Huawei Develop Conference
Recently, it had rumored that the company has already begun bringing HarmonyOS to its devices, which would also mark the halting of any major development for the EMUI 11 paltform. In other words, EMUI 11 will effectively be the last version of the custom skin. It was previously rumored that the process will not be immediate as the smartphone manufacturer aimed to transition the EMUI 11 enabled devices to HarmonyOS through EMUI 11.1, which will replace the kernel with the proprietary operating system.
But as per ITHome, the company will be directly upgrading devices to HarmonyOS. For those unaware, the new OS is the company’s self developed platform, which was first announced back in 2019 after it faced a trade ban by the US government. At the moment, the brand aims on bringing this OS to more than just smartphones, in IoT devices and larger screened products as well, to add cross platform integration as well.
