According to this report, Huawei’s HarmonyOS is now running on over 90 million devices. Its on track of reaching the company’s goal of 300 million devices at the end of this year.

To be clear, the number counts for the devices running the OS, not users. These represent the lot of Huawei devices in the wild, a combination of upgraded and new devices. We’re not entirely sure which ones are converts from Android (or iOS).

Huawei was running for the top smartphone brand before the US blacklist, so the volume was no surprise. Still, that’s quite a feat, considering it was only recently released. And considering the pace of its adoption, 300 million HarmonyOS 2 devices sounds doable.

Huawei HarmonyOS 2 for phones

Richard Yu, president of Huawei’s Consumer Business, revealed during the Huawei P50 launch that an average of 8 devices upgrade to HarmonyOS 2 every second. Right now, HarmonyOS is rolling out to Huawei and Honor devices in China. The number will continue to rise as they open up to the global market sometime this year.

To recap, HarmonyOS features a cleaner, leaner design, and a lot of new features, including a brand new Control Center, an iOS-esque access to controls and connected devices, and Super Service Widgets with added functionality to standard widgets.
