Huawei has confirmed that it’ll launch the HarmonyOS for mobile devices in April and it’s expected that the company will unveil this software somewhere around Huwei Developer Conference 2021 for Cloud business.
In December 2020, Huawei launched the HarmonyOS developer beta program for mobile devices and began the recruitment for the Huawei P40, Mate 30 and MatePad Pro devices.
Since the initial rollout, Huawei has rolled out two beta software packges for this operating system, which is currently under developer mode. At the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile developer beta event on March 25, Duan Mengran, VP of Huawei’s Consumer Business AI and Smart Full Scenario Business Department announced that the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile developer beta 3 will launch on March 31.
