so, does this mean the UK will have the update or we still waiting - Samsung update plus add new features each month, it gives you something to look forward to.

Soon or later but i think soon Huawei will leave all the competition and all the competitors back behind a many thousdant miles maybe far more than to the moon and back.
I hope so. Comúpared to some other competition like Samsung, Sony apple or LG they are far better and far more user friendly and they always been.

Arggghhh my Mate 20 Pro isn't on the list.

Bro, 16 Dec 2020Harmony is android-based OSHey Bro, Huawei's HarmonyOS is an independent operating system. Watch this link. https://youtu.be/yPTe_qEFnWk (Huawei started working on HarmonyOS in 2007 if I'm not mistaken.) It's NOT Android-based. Huawei's latest phones run on HarmonyOS not Android. Huawei is starting to develop its own ecosystem. That's why there's HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) the App Gallery and Petal Search.

Super phone

That video makes Harmony OS seem somewhat smoother than typical Android. I hope it’s successful, it will be good to have an alternative to Google and Apple.

Anonymous, 16 Dec 2020Who cares about harmony OS You apparently 😂😂

But everybody should care about Huawei, because they make really, really good phones and without this player in the mobile industry, the other brands will be lazy and that's not good for customers at all.

Harmony is android-based OS

  • Missed opportunity

The use of a new kernel instead of Linux means the OS will be unlikely to receive ports to non-Huawei hardware. The drivers alone will be a huge stumbling block. It would have been far easier to implement EMUI on top of Wayland and actually create a serious challenge to Android.
