HarmonyOS 2 Mobile Beta Tracker [November 9, 2021]



At Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) 2020, the Chinese tech giant unveiled two new mobile software systems – the first is EMUI 11 and the second is the brand new operating system – HarmonyOS 2 (Hongmeng OS) 2.

HarmonyOS is Huawei’s self-developed micro-kernel-based operating system, developed to work across different devices and provide a new user experience in all scenarios. This new software platform was initially introduced in 2019 powered by distributed capabilities.

HarmonyOS 2.0 comes with a comprehensive upgrade to its existing distributed capabilities, including software bus, data management, and security. Huawei also introduced an adaptive UX framework that allows developers to quickly reach tens of millions of new devices and users by changing the user interface.

At the HarmonyOS 2.0 launching event, Huawei also unveiled a new set of tools including emulators, SDK packages, and IDE tools to develop apps for HarmoynOS 2.0 mobile, which help users to understand the basic ecology of this upcoming smartphone operating system.


In December 2020, Huawei released the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile developer beta version and started the enrollment of flagship devices for HarmonyOS 2 beta testing.

The device open for HarmonyOS 2.0 beta includes Huawei P40, Mate 30, and MatePad Pro devices. However, these registered smartphones already received the HarmonyOS 2.0 first beta version. Since then, Huawei has conducted a bunch of beta testing on different Huawei devices, and eventually lead us to the official launch on June 2.

At the event, Huawei announced over 100 devices that will receive the HarmonyOS 2 upgrade. These devices are scheduled to receive HarmonyOS in a staged and phase timeline up to next year.

So, there’s a lot more to cover, and below you check all of the devices and their progress under one simplified tracker including the different phases of the HarmonyOS 2 upgrade.

This operating system comes with cross-platform capabilities that help it to connect different platforms together seamlessly and perform various actions. Initially, the OS only supported smart TVs and their features were quite limited.

Thereafter, the Chinese tech maker will conduct public beta testings for this software and bring them to the consumers via the different testing programs.
