So Huawei didn't abandon that model in terms of Android updates?

Oh they abandoned them long ago....

But I have a P20 lite as well, and its still functioning just fine. Don't really see the need to upgrade.

Yeah... I'm sure they snuck in a few extra lines here and there.

Lithuanian govt has found “censorship” software in Xiaomi phones and have advised their people to stop using any Chinese made mobile as it’s likely other manufacturers with links to the Chinese govt will also include this type of spyware.

Yeah saw that little gem this morning...

Has made me reconsider whether I'd get a cheap Xiaomi phone in the not too distant future honestly.

Pity they don't support their "old" devices like the P20 lite. A three year old phone that is obsolete.
It got a security update a few months ago...

Huawei employee reveals Huawei's Harmony OS 3 is coming soon

IT Home News reported that a Huawei employee revealed in a social post that Huawei would be unveiling HarmonyOS 3.0 very soon. According to the report, the Chinese phone maker will be holding the Huawei Developer Conference on October 24. At said conference, Huawei will outline the updates coming to HarmonyOS 3.0.

Huawei has had to rely less so on Google services and re-invented it's smartphones' operating system (though its still heavily based on Android). HarmonyOS 2.0 launched during last year's Huawei Developer Conference in September of 2020 with the OS arriving to devices on September 16.

It doesn't really matter what it is based on if it doesn't have Google Services

It did.

Meanwhile I just updated a 5 year old iPhone to Apple's latest OS.

Can't compare the two. The cheapest 6S costed R11799 whereas the p20 lite was only R5999 at launch.
As if that's a valid excuse for them to drop support for it that soon after launch.

N/B: HarmonyOS 2 is not yet available for global users. In fact, there is no information regarding the global version of HarmonyOS. However, we know that Huawei is still developing the EMUI 12 for global users. From all indications, HarmonyOS is not ready to leave China for now.
