Huawei promises a series of update for the following phones
What is Harmony OS?
HarmonyOS is a family of operating systems developed by Huawei. Unveiled on 9 August 2019, Huawei initially stated that it would be an independently-developed, microkernel-based, distributed OS, and “completely different from Android and iOS”, but it was later discovered that HarmonyOS was actually a derivative of Android.

In short it is an eco-system Huawei had envisioned.

The list includes the Huawei Mate X2 foldable smartphones, the Huawei Mate X2, Mate 40 series smartphones, Mate 30 series smartphones and Huawei P40 series smartphones.
The report also cited another report by a Weibo tipster who shared a much-more elaborate list of devices that are expected to get the Harmony OS update. As per the tipster, Huawei Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, Mate 40 RS, Mate X2, Nova 8, Nova 8 Pro and Mate Pad Pro are expected to get the update on June 2. As far as other Huawei smartphones are concerned, at its upcoming event, the company is also expected to reveal the timeline as to when its older phones will get the update.
It remains to be seen if Huawei will roll out the update immediately after the event or if it will go for a staggered rollout. In any case, we will have to wait for the event, to know the details but Huawei promises and that seems energetic.
