Huawei has released HarmonyOS 3.0 developer preview at Huawei Developer Conference 2021. The company initiated this release and announced that this new HarmonyOS version will launch next year. Next year is also the launching of a new Huawei flagship Huawei Mate 50, which could carrier HarmonyOS 3.0 onboard.

According to a previous report, Huawei is preparing to launch the Mate 50 flagship in the first half of 2022. This installment of the Mate series flagship could become a revival for the company’s ongoing fall in the smartphone market.

However, Huawei has not made a clear stand on the launch of its next flagship as the Chinese tech maker currently resolving issues with the supply chain.

Meanwhile, launching HarmonyOS 3.0 with Huawei Mate 50 is likely to be the best strategy that the company should follow. In terms of facts, Huawei has scheduled to launch the first HarmonyOS 3.0 beta in March 2022.

At this point, Huawei could also unveil its new Mate device with the latest software without any hesitation, which will later rollout for the old models with beta activity.

Hence, it’ll also be available for the developer community that includes third-party developers and manufacturers that want to develop apps and programs depending on the latest OpenHarmony 3.0 project.

Previous information reveals that Huawei Mate 50 will come with a large display and its camera system will be a combination of P50 and last year’s Mate 40 in a single module.

Therefore, it’ll be quite interesting to see what new camera technologies Mate 50 will bring for us this time. From the hardware side, this new device is likely to quip a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 processor with 4nm process technology.

The latest version of the Snapdragon processor will come into play with a different set of processing improvements. However, the use of 5G connectivity is still unconfirmed due to the lack of required RF components in the supply chain. However, it’s also expected that Huawei will resolve the issue soon with the local manufacturers and bring a better solution.
