A few days ago, Huawei began to send the first batch of HarmonyOS beta update for the P30 and P30 Pro flagship. As this new operating system replaces the entire software system for the devices, upgrading from the former – EMUI 11.

A smartphone such as Huawei P30 and P30 pro always remains a special gadget and a daily driver for the consumer as it’s the last Huawei flagship that was launched with Google Mobile Services (GMS).

The Huawei P30 series is not only Huawei’s lucky charm in terms of shipment but also a device that has raised the bar of photography and made the company a champion of smartphone cameras.

If we look at their specs, Huawei P30 devices come with powerful offerings including a curved edge display with a notch design and a full-screen viewing experience that stands in its own league.

Next comes its unique camera system that has a powerful camera sensors and the world’s first RYYB color mapping that absorbs more lighting to capture a brighter image even in low light conditions.

In terms of performance, the Huawei P30 model equips a 7nm Kirin 980 chipset that ensures you don’t meet a leg inside this device as this flagship processor smoothly handles all of the multi-tasking as well as intense graphic games.

From the software side, this 2-year-old flagship features Android-based EMUI 9.1 out of the box. Over the course of past years, this line has been upgraded with two major versions including EMUI 10 and EMUI 11.

But users are excited to see and test the new operating system – HarmonyOS on their Huawei P30 device, while the beta testing availability remains limited to the Chinese models.
