As a matter of fact, the company has reportedly said that it has no plans of releasing a smartphone with its in-house OS this year. The comments come from Huawei Senior VP Vincent Yang, who said during an event held in NY on Wednesday that they want to maintain one standard, one ecosystem.
Now, Huawei's Senior Vice President Vincent Yang said during a media event in NY that the company has no plans to launch a smartphone powered by HarmonyOS this year. Some companies use them for other devices such as tablets and smartwatches.
Also, it seems that the platform isn't powerful enough yet to be used as a mobile operating system.
Huawei launched its multi-platform operating system a few weeks ago, revealing the first Harmony device will be a Smart TV made by its sub-brand Honor. The device is rumored to be a new version of the Mate series. The phone will run Android right out of the box, and the 90-day reprieve extension that was announced earlier this week seems to confirm that Huawei will have access to Google's Android long enough to launch both the Mate 30 Pro and Mate X. Once these devices become official, Android updates will continue to drop regardless of whether there's a ban in place from the USA government.

Protestors gather to demonstrate against the Brazilian government and the fires in the Amazon in Berlin , Friday Aug. 23, 2019. In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel views the fires as "shocking and threatening", government spokesman Steffen Seibert said.
Yang spoke about the current situation, saying it was unlikely that Huawei would launch a smartphone powered by its new OS.
The operating system was being developed as part of Huawei's "internet of things" strategy as the firm is trying to create consistency in its technological experience across connected products through its own software.
The new open-source OS is fundamentally different from Google's Android.
The OS could be faster than Android, but there aren't many reliable apps that potential customers would run on HarmonyOS smartphone.
