Huawei has just confirmed that some of its older devices official update to HarmonyOS, the operating system he developed on the basis of Android for his own devices. Huawei’s catalog is completely divided between old Android devices and Google services, devices with Android and without google services and the new terminals which have HarmonyOS. Now Huawei wants to break that division with an announcement, all of the details of which we still don’t know.
These 14 Huawei will soon be updated to HarmonyOS
The company announced that 14 devices in its catalog will soon be updated to HarmonyOS. The curious thing about this update is that it accommodates 14 relatively old smartphones that currently have Android and Google services. Huawei has not communicated the degree of obligation that users will need to update.
- Huawei p20
- Huawei mate 10
- Huawei-P20 Pro
- Huawei mate 10 pro
- Huawei nova 5i
- Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design
- Huawei nova 4
- Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design
- Huawei-nova 4th
- Honor X10
- Honor 30S
- Honor-X10 Max
- Honor 30 youth edition
- Honor Play 4
All these devices will officially update HarmonyOS soon. These are relatively old terminals, several years old and they will no longer see Android updates. The good news is that they will be able to install a new, newer operating system, but there is also bad news: they will likely lose the ability to access Google services.
Huawei will likely release the update in the near future and it’s up to users what to do: whether to update or stay as they are. The good news is that all of these devices predate the US shutdown, so you can reinstall Android and the google services no problem.
If you own any of these devices, we recommend that you wait patiently and be clear when updating. Huawei will likely issue a statement to find out how to update and how necessary it is.
