At HDC 2022, Huawei revealed various HarmonyOS technologies including details on HarmonyOS 3.1 and HarmonyOS 4, meanwhile, here we are connecting these dots with the upcoming Huawei P60 and Mate 60 series.
Huawei P60 and Mate 60 series are reported to launch next year, on the other hand, the company also gave us a hint of this happening by launching HarmonyOS 3.1 at HDC 2022 and retaining HarmonyOS 4 for next year.
Huawei had a tradition of launching two flagships in a year including a P and Mate series smartphone. In 2021, Huawei broke the tradition due to the lack of required assets to build new devices. It only launched the P50 series in order to at least remain in the latest flagship race.
This year, the Huawei Mate 50 series marked its appearance but there was no P60. In the past two years, Huawei launched only two flagships.
In terms of software, the P50 series comes pre-boxed with HarmonyOS 2, while the Mate 50 ships with HarmonyOS 3.
Inputs reveal that the company will resume dual flaghip in year tradition from 2023. If it’s true, then we could see the Huawei P60 series packed with HarmonyOS 3.1 because the software will launch in the first quarter of 2023.
On the other hand, Huawei Mate 60 could launch in the fourth quarter of 2023, while, HarmonyOS 4 will also be announced around the date during HDC 2023.
Currently, Huawei has not revealed the smartphone-related features of HarmonyOS 3 but we can expect a major improvement in performance since it comes with a new OpenHarmony 3.2 base.
Furthermore, there’s a mention of an improved system connectivity scenario that is specially designed for HarmonyOS 3.1. Therefore, we could also see new additions in Super Device. Still, there’s no graphical release has been detected so far.
HarmonyOS 4 is currently unknown and there is no specific announcement made on this HarmonyOS version. More on this could only be known in 2023.
