Strange: Huawei Mate 50 Pro upgrading EMUI 13 to HarmonyOS 3

Huawei Mate 50 Pro is expanding in the global market and it comes with pre-installed EMUI 13 software, however, users of this phone are facing a strange phenomenon as they upgrade to HarmonyOS 3.

The story is coming from Asia, as models of Huawei Mate 50 Pro are getting an upgrade over HarmonyOS. As noted, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro model was running EMUI (C636E10R2P1) and received HarmonyOS (EXPC318E1R1P1).

Interestingly, it’s experimental software that is designed for non-mainland Chinese smartphones such as Hong Kong. We’ve explored this matter once before and suggest you read the article linked below.

Some global Huawei phones with EMUI 12 receiving the HarmonyOS update

Why you should not install:

This is not a usual rollout and there are a few things that you should know about before you install the latest software version, specially HarmonyOS 3.

One of the major concerns is that your Huawei Mate 50 Pro could lose app compatibility with many Android apps. Once installed, HarmonyOS could make some changes to the kernel and it may not be familiar with global mobile apps.

Both EMUI 13 and HarmonyOS 3 are almost identical but it could also affect the phone’s performance because these aren’t the official HarmonyOS global builds.

We suggest you ignore these builds and check for the next EMUI 13 upgrade via the software updates section.

Huawei Mate 50 Pro:

Launched in July, HarmonyOS 3 comes with a variety of new features including smart folders with new layouts, better animations, and improved security, and privacy, while others are major optimizations made to the super device feature.

Huawei Mate 50 Pro is the first flagship to pack with HarmonyOS 3 operating system. On the other hand, Huawei also released this smartphone with EMUI 13 for global consumers.

However, the latest development could be a result of any internal error, as these phones should not be receiving HarmonyOS. Meanwhile, we haven’t heard any official word on this matter or clarification of why this is happening.

Amy is our firmware and software specialist, she keeps her eagle eyes open for new software rollouts, beta programs, and other software related activities as well as new smartphone launch.


Huawei is yet to share EMUI 13 roadmap

EMUI 13 beta kicked off for global users and it’s quite exciting but the roadmap of eligible Huawei devices is still awaited. While there’s no official news available on this matter.

In 2021, Huawei released EMUI 12 roadmap during the Asia pacific launch event but this year, there are no such plans revealed. Instead of the roadmap, Huawei opened the EMUI 13 beta for all Huawei P50, P50 Pro, P50 Pocket, and Mate Xs 2 foldable phones.

Unfortunately, the program is open for the Asia region but more users want to join the beta activity. Especially the European models are waiting for term to dive into the testing pool.

Despite the delay, we hope that the oldest set of devices may also get a slot into this EMUI 13 release program.

In the meantime, if you have a flagship phone, tune into the Beta app. From here open the “Me” section and then search for a new EMUI 13 beta project.

You need to sign up for the beta application and wait for the submission. Once submitted, you will be notified to download the OTA update package.

If the activity is not available on your phone, don’t worry, you will see the project after the beta opens in your country. Yet, we also suggest you keep an eye on the Beta application.

EMUI 13 Features:

EMUI 13 focuses on reinventing EMUI 12, this includes better security and privacy. This new software can review all of the data safety measures thanks to the new privacy center.

It has new options to allow or revoke permission, check the timeline for all of the user permission, and so on. You can also set new image privacy to hide the image meta information.

EMUI 13 also plays well around the user interface and there are many improvements made to features such as large folders and service widgets.
