Huawei has sped up the HarmonyOS 2.0 rollout in China and users are seemingly interested to upgrade. The latest software comes with various new features and design interfaces to allure smartphone owners including the Nova series.

However, the initial HarmonyOS software users including Huawei Nova 8, 7, and 6 series are well recognized among consumers. Therefore, the company has released a new .168 version of HarmonyOS 2.0 for these devices.

As we’ve seen before, the .168 HarmonyOS 2.0 update for these Huawei Nova devices comes with an important bug that was haunting HarmonyOS users for a long time. Talking specifically, the latest update fixes multi-window mode.

Surprisingly, the company is delivering September 2021 security patch for these devices, which is not regular to see. At least with HarmonyOS, Huawei is scoping to send timely security patches for the corresponding devices.
