Now, Huawei has started to push a new software update for Nova 7 SE Lohas Edition, which installs the security patch released in March 2021 and improves system security as well as overall device performance.

However, Huawei will confirm more eligible models, once HarmonyOS 2.0 developer beta moves forward and reaches the stable version.
