At Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) 2022, Huawei dropped a big revelation that HarmonyOS 4 operating system next year. As it has now been confirmed that the company has decided to skip the HarmonyOS launch for this year.
The announcement came during the HDC 2022 keynote from Huawei Consumer Business Group Chief Operating Officer, He Gang, saying that the next HarmonyOS version – HarmonyOS 4 will launch next year.
According to the information, HarmonyOS 4 will play a major role in establishing the concept of “HarmonyOS World” and work with the corresponding technologies.
However, He Gang has not revealed any specific details or user interface designs for phone users.
HarmonyOS will garner 30,000APIs that help developers to install new features to the operating system as well as mobile applications.
HarmonyOS is designed as a cross-device multi-platform operating system from Huawei and started its journey in 2019. From there, the company announced HM OS 1 for smart TVs, followed by HarmonyOS 2 in the subsequent year.
HarmonyOS 2.0 was revolutionary and it opened the gate for smartphone adaptation, a beginning that Huawei smartphone users have been waiting for.
HarmonyOS 3 is the next step and Huawei phones, tablets, smartwatches, and other smart devices already started upgrading to this version.
At today’s event, Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO – Yu Chengdong confirmed over 320 million installations for HarmonyOS operating system, which is a new milestone.
On the other hand, Huawei’s third-party electronic devices’ operating system HarmonyOS Connect has also touched new heights with 250 million installations and a 212% on-year increase in devices that are launching with this OS.
Nonetheless, we now have to wait until Huawei Developer Conference 2023 to get HarmonyOS 4 on board. However, the outcome may meet our expectations and there are some amazing features that Huawei is likely to bring with HarmonyOS 4.
All and all, we are excited about this announcement and will keep you posted with future developments for HarmonyOS 4.
Huawei is an advance player in technology such as ChatGPT: Chief
ChatGPT is a raging storm on the internet and everyone is talking about this AI-powered instant reply software but Huawei says, it has long mastered such technology.
A person in charge of Huawei’s computing product section said that Huawei began to have a layout in the large model in 2020. In the following year, Huawei launched Pengcheng Pangu, which is a super-large model and the first of its kind in the industry.
This model can generate 100 billion levels of processes and can generate responses or understand Chinese natural language processing as well as speech recognition.
To be mentioned, Pangu NLP large model was the world’s largest Chinese language pre-training model with 100 billion parameters at that time. The sample tuning of the data improves the application performance of the model in the scenario.
Recently, two patents have surfaced on China’s intellectual property office, which reveal Huawei’s use of AI in instant reply software. However, we can say that Huawei has already applied a lot of AI software to human conversation technology, which was way ahead of ChatGPT. But Huawei has not revealed any plans to implement such tech in Huawei devices.
ChatGPT was launched as a prototype on November 30, 2022, and quickly garnered attention for its detailed responses and articulate answers across many domains of knowledge. Its uneven factual accuracy, however, was identified as a significant drawback. Following the release of ChatGPT, OpenAI’s valuation was estimated at US$29 billion.

After not meeting the market requirements the share of Huawei’s smartphone market declined severely in both the Chinese and global markets. While other smartphone makers are the ones that got most of the benefits.
