At Huawei Developer Conference 2021, Huawei launched HarmonyOS 3 and began testing the developer preview. On the other hand, the tech maker launched it in public in July 2022 for smartphones. At HDC 2022, Huawei didn’t launch HarmonyOS 4, yet it unveiled various services and HarmonyOS 3.1.
The stationed launch of a second HarmonyOS version suits the motive here, because, Huawei has decided to put two operating system versions among consumers.
One will be a substantial upgrade and the second one will be major. Therefore, HarmonyOS 3.1 could be seen in the Huawei P60 series and HarmonyOS 4 in Huawei Mate 60 series, which is slated to launch in the second half of this year.
As for now, Huawei has not revealed the official details about HarmonyOS 3.1 or HarmonyOS 4’s features and user interface.
Unveiled at HDC 2019, Huawei first introduced HarmonyOS in smart screens, and then the company opened it for various platforms. By harnessing the power of shared APIs and cross-device support, HarmonyOS could provide an all-around user experience.
For example, you can connect and control all of your smart home and IoT devices right from your smartphone. Various industry partners are using HarmonyOS to build new devices and helping to grow the HarmonyOS ecosystem.

Despite having no confirmation, we could assume that this could be the upcoming Huawei P60 series. Also, we are not expecting big features upgrade with this software.
However, we could see this release as a bug fix and optimizations, while adding flagship-oriented additions to the Huawei P60 lineup.
Announced at Huawei Developer Conference 2022, HarmonyOS 3.1 comes as an early version of the HarmonyoS operating system. On the other hand, it is slated to launch in the first quarter of this year.

The cross-device super terminal can be connected with one drag, and the universal card can be swiped to obtain the required information, bringing a new experience of smart life in all scenarios.
It also gets you a new ArkTS development language developed by Huawei. Based on TypeScript (TS for short), it matches the ArkUI framework and expands correspondingly.
