Latest HarmonyOS features rolling out for 14 Huawei old flagship models



HarmonyOS 14 old flagship devices

Since June, Huawei is working on HarmonyOS 2.0 software update rollout for a variety of devices including over 100 models that have been selected under the roadmap. The company first started the beta testing on smartphones, followed by the public and stable rollout.

Although, HarmonyOS has been a major focus of the Huawei consumers for the past few months but it doesn’t seem to be ready for the global markets. Therefore, Huawei has decided to put EMUI 12 on the list. According to the information, the company has confirmed EMUI 12 as the next major software update for global smartphone owners.

Aside from EMUI 12, Huawei has nearly completed the HarmonyOS operating system upgrade on all of the eligible smartphones in China. These devices include two of the most prominent old flagship – the Huawei Mate 9 and the P10 series.

The Huawei P10 and Mate 9 have been cherished and procured with new features under the HarmonyOS rollout. The latest HarmonyOS software has revamped the entire user interface and software experience for these two lineups and provided a harmonious UI/UX design that wasn’t available before.

Although, it’s not easy to comprehend, why Huawei has kept Huawei Mate 9 and P10 devices out of EMUI 12’s upgrade plan. However, we remain optimistic and will wait to see, what Huawei has to offer.

In the latest development, Huawei has started to roll out a new HarmonyOS update for the 14 Huawei models that consist of the two old flagship – Huawei Mate 9, P10 as well as P20 Pro in the Chinese market.

In terms of changelog, the latest HarmonyOS update for these 14 Huawei old flagship models bring the latest features in the service center, widgets, system, security, display, Celia Keyboard, and more. Below you can check all of the models and their corresponding update changelog.
