In only a little longer than a month, the Huawei-developed HarmonyOS has garnered an astounding 30 million users, and it won’t be stopping there.
Earlier this year in June, Chinese multinational technology company Huawei launched the HarmonyOS 2.0, and according to Somag News, a monthly report released by the company reveals that this fresh global operating system has even more recently broken an impressive download record.
The Android alternative’s rise to popularity wasn’t slow to begin with; the HarmonyOS garnered a shocking 10 million users within the first week of its latest update’s initial release. Huawei’s latest announcement, however, shows us that this figure has actually tripled since then.
Yes, the HarmonyOS 2.0 (primarily used by device owners residing in China) has attracted an astounding 30 million users in a month’s time. With such positively steady progress thus far, Huawei is hopeful that this number will have increased to around 300 million by the time the year 2021 comes to an end.
What doors can 30 million HarmonyOS 2.0 users open for Huawei?
Provided that the odds of the HarmonyOS reaching 300 million users by this year’s end do seem to be on Huawei’s side, it’s just as likely that the company will succeed at making a bonus 100 million home appliance sales, 200 million tablet and mobile phone sales, and even more within that same time frame.
To add to the good news, once the Chinese manufacturer’s new HarmonyOS achieves stronger stability and an even more widespread audience, it may very well be given opportunities to be adopted by third-party companies, further expanding Huawei’s influence on the tech industry as a result.
Promising potential amidst competition.
In order for the scenario described above to manifest, however, the company will need to secure a minimum of 16 percent of the operating system market share. As of the moment, the majority of the market’s most well known operating systems by other businesses have made their way past the very 16 percent that Huawei ought to be striving towards.
As per updated data retrieved from the research company StatCounter, Apple’s iOS has harnessed 16.26%, Windows has grabbed a market share of 31.94%, and Google’s Android operating system stands at 40.63%.
Assuming that Huawei is undoubtedly setting its HarmonyOS goals to meet that minimum 16 percent of market share, it isn’t outrageous to think the company could rise significantly in status within the industry before too long–again, perhaps even by the end of 2021, considering how quickly it has reeled in its 30 million new users in only a month.
