Expect Harmony OS phones to go global in 2022, as well as a new companion

Harmony OS will be available to European consumers in 2022, according to Huawei executive Derek Yu (h/t: Gizmochina). Yu responded when the source inquired as to why the recently released Huawei Nova 9 comes with Android 11 instead of Harmony OS.

In the aftermath of the US trade restriction, Huawei chose to develop its own mobile platform, codenamed Harmony OS. The platform, which is said to be similar to Android, has been primarily limited to China. However, a spokesman from the corporation has now disclosed a rough timeline for wider availability.

It wouldn’t be the first time Harmony OS products made their way to international markets, as the MatePad Pro tablet line did earlier this year. However, this would be the first time we’ve seen the platform on a smartphone outside of China.

Mate and foldable devices in 2022

One phone line we haven’t seen in 2021 is the Mate series, with the Mate 50 family initially expected in Q3 or Q4 this year. This omission hasn’t gone unnoticed by Adevărul either, and the outlet asked Yu about the missing device family.

“The Mate series is on its way and will be released in 2022,” the executive is quoted as saying. He didn’t clarify whether the 2022 Mate phones would land in global markets or if they would be restricted to China. This wouldn’t be the only major release to be delayed in some form, as the company revealed back in October that the P50 series global launch is postponed to early 2022.

Finally, the Huawei representative acknowledged that the Mate X2 foldable didn’t make it to Europe, but said the “latest foldable” will come to the region and will be launched at MWC 2022. It’s unclear if this latest device is simply the Mate X2 or if it’s an all-new foldable. For what it’s worth, Huawei restricted the original Mate X to China in 2019 before the tweaked Mate XS came to global markets in 2020. But there are rumors regarding an all-new Huawei foldable being in the works. So we’ll have to wait and see what Huawei eventually brings to MWC.

Nevertheless, it’s clear that Huawei still insists on having a global presence in the smartphone space in 2022 despite its major slide in the last year or two. But those hoping for sanctions to be lifted next year might not want to hold their breath.
