HarmonyOS for Huawei Nova 5T: Pretty high chances of upgrade



Huawei Nova 5T

Launched in August 2019, Huawei Nova 5T is a versatile smartphone that has made its own place among consumers and proves itself strong and longstanding on the promises made by Huawei to the Nova 5T buyers.

Talking about its specs, the Huawei Nova 5T has a 6.26-inch full HD+ resolution screen with a hole-punch design. The phone is powered by the 7nm Kirin 980 processor alongside 8GB of RAM and a big storage option.

The Nova 5T has a powerful camera system and consists of a quad-camera rear camera system including a 48MP main shooter, a 16MP ultra wide-angle, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor for bokeh shots. That’s not it, because the phone also has a 32MP front-facing camera that helps you take capture amazing selfies.

With all of these capabilities and hardware prowess, Huawei Nova 5T stands tall on the battleground alongside its users.

But what about its software system? FYI, Huawei Nova 5T comes with a pre-installed EMUI 9.1 system and it has received version upgrades to EMUI 10.0, EMUI 10.1, and EMUI 11.

But with the launch of HarmonyOS, Huawei seems to have confirmed that it won’t develop any major version for the EMUI software system because of its upcoming HarmonyOS rollout roadmap.

Ever since the announcement of HarmonyOS, users have been continuously concerned about the Nova 5T’s eligibility for this operating system.

“Will my Huawei Nova 5T receive HarmonyOS?” many users have asked us the same question

Let’s try to answer this question:

Although Huawei is yet to confirm this question but we can run our own horses on this matter with some facts that you need to know.

In June 2019, Huawei initially launched Huawei Nova 5 series in China, the series consists of three models – Huawei Nova 5, Nova 5 Pro, and Nova 5i.

And the interesting thing is that these devices are included in the HarmonyOS eligible devices, so the same fate will be decided for the Nova 5T.

When my Nova 5T will receive HarmonyOS?

Huawei Nova 5 Pro, which is the top model from this lineup, is selected for the third batch of HarmonyOS eligible devices and schedule to test HarmonyOS by the fourth quarter of 2021.

However, Huawei may speed up the testing process and could bring the testing in the third quarter of this year.

So, we can expect that HarmonyOS will be part of the beta rollout in the second batch of global beta testing somewhere in the last quarter of 2021 or the first quarter of 2022.

Still, there’s no confirmation on this matter and we’ll have to wait for more information on this matter.
