(Pocket Ribbon) – Huawei's so-called Plan B HarmonyOS is in the works. It has already launched on tablets and smartwatches , and now it is almost ready for launch on smartphones.
While it will undoubtedly be the software to be launched on new smartphones this year, Huawei has also announced that its software will be available as an update to some older phones that currently work with EMUI.
In fact, the company has announced that more than 100 Huawei devices will receive the software as an update in the coming year. That device list includes the Mate 40 and Mate 30 series, plus the P40 series and Nova 8.
The list of devices that will receive the software is extensive and even includes phones as old as the Mate 9, Mate 10, P10 and P20 series devices, plus many others.
Of course, the latest phones get it first. Huawei has stated that it will initially be available for the Mate 40, P40 and Mate 30, with other phones coming later in the year. As for those older devices, they will probably get it in the first half of 2022.
In its announcement, the manufacturer touted HarmonyOS' ability to make your phone feel as fast and responsive as new for up to 36 months, thanks to a new method of memory read/write management built into it.
It also stated that HarmonyOS allows for longer battery life, using the Mate 40 Pro as an example; stating that it could run a graphically intense game called Game for Peace for 5.1 hours straight.

HarmonyOS is Huawei's big game to create a tight ecosystem of devices. It is designed to enable seamless connectivity between your Huawei phone, tablet, watch, laptop, speakers, headphones and even refrigerator without the need for additional apps or logins.
It also comes with redesigned widgets, giving you snippets of relevant information — similar to iOS 14 — while also giving you faster access to phone feature controls and apps.
The only downside: Huawei's press release only lists devices in China for now and hasn't specified when the rollout will go to the UK and Europe.
We've reached out to Huawei for comment on when to expect it here and what exactly the process will be to update. We'll update this post to reflect that if and when we hear from the manufacturer.
