During the HarmonyOS 2 presentation, Huawei revealed that it plans to update 100 devices to the new operating system.
There are many devices, although Huawei says it will take until the first half of 2022 to complete the update. Huawei has revealed the update schedule in China, although at the moment we have no news on when this update will arrive in other countries.
Here’s the full HarmonyOS upgrade schedule for the 100 supported devices (for simplicity, in some cases the series name has been included instead of each individual device that is part of the series):

2021 Third quarter
2021 Fourth quarter
2022 First half
As you can see, Huawei is updating some of its older flagships, even from 2016, like the Mate9 series.
HarmonyOS 2 has new features like Super Service Widgets that bring added functionality to standard widgets. Users will be able to perform certain tasks using only an application widget instead of opening the application itself.
There is also a Control Center that facilitates access and control of all connected devices, and a Task Center that allows you to move tasks between devices, such as from a tablet to a phone and vice versa.
Other features include a new font with adjustable thickness, the inter-device clipboard feature, and multi-camera mixing that allows images from nearby device cameras to be combined when recording video to provide different angles.
Huawei claims that HarmonyOS 2 is secure and has obtained EAL 4+ security certification.
