Last December, Huawei announced the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile beta for developers, which allow the developers to understand and create mobile applications for this operating system ahead of the public release.
Alongside the announcement, Huawei also opened the recruitment of the HarmonyOS 2.o mobile beta for Huawei P40, Mate 30, and MatePad Pro devices in China. Soon after the announcement, Huawei also started to rollout the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile beta OTA for the registered users.
Recently some reports suggest that HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile beta rollout has been started for the Huawei P30 and Mate 30 Pro 5G smartphones. Aside from the Mate 30 Pro 5G, our interest lies in the P30 and whether Huawei really started to enroll and test HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile beta on Huawei P30?

On December 16, 2020, Huawei opened HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile beta for flagship devices that for your information already includes the Mate 30 Pro 5G and it too received the HarmonyOS 2.0 beta update at the time. Since the rollout works in batches some of the beta users receiving it gradually.
HarmonyOS 2.0 beta for Huawei P30?
Beside the Mate 30 Pro 5G, there’s a screenshot circulating over the Weibo and different online platforms, which claims to be the rollout build of the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile beta for the Huawei P30.
The screenshot mentions HarmonyOS 2.0 build version 188.8.131.52 (SP2DEVC00E2R5P90) and the size is 4.03GB. The changelog doesn’t have much to reveal about the features of the update.
By looking it closely, we found out that this build information is the same as the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile beta update for the Huawei P40, Mate 30, and MatePad Pro devices, check our complete previous report here and the screenshot below.
Furthermore, Huawei has not announced any new recruitment activity on the official developer website for the Huawei P30. For now, we don’t have any concrete proof for the rollout of HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile beta for the Huawei P30 devices either in China or the global market.
When will it be available for the Huawei P30?
The Chinese models of the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro have already completed EMUI 11 installation but these come with Google Mobile Services (GMS) software ecosystem. However, these devices are also expected to get HarmonyOS 2.0 but an official confirmation is still awaited.
