“You were supposed to fight evil.” Huawei may introduce 20% commission for HarmonyOS apps

This is where Huawei is still very different from Apple and Google

Huawei does not charge developers to use HarmonyOS. However, as Bloomberg writes, the company is considering introducing a 20% commission fee for applications.

Charging developers a commission on income — Common industry practice: Leaders like Apple and Google have commission rates ranging from 15% to 30%. Huawei has not yet officially commented on this information.

Huawei's recent success has more to do with smartphones than software. The company's smartphone business has grown significantly since the launch of the Mate 60 series last year, which featured its own Kirin chips with a 5G modem, despite ongoing US sanctions.

The Pura 70 series also quickly sold out after its April release. Huawei's success in particular forced Apple to sharply lower iPhone prices in China. Huawei is expected to unveil the Mate 70 sometime between September and October.

According to rumors, the Mate 70 will be the first Huawei phone with a stable version of HarmonyOS Next, which will completely abandon support for Android applications. HarmonyOS Next is currently in testing phase. Sources say the current version already offers better animation effects than Android.
