HarmonyOS 2.0:

HarmonyOS 2.0 is the discussion that Nova 3 is interested in. To be mentioned, the Nova 3 is eligible to receive HarmonyOS 2 upgrade but the official time of the testing is drawn for next year. Still, the HarmonyOS testing remains enclosed in China and we’ve yet to know when it’ll come out for the global users.

Even after this confusion, the fans also have a chance to receive a new EMUI upgrade but we’ll wait for more confirmation on this matter.
