HarmonyOS developer beta testing saga originally began in December 2020, when the Chinese tech giant started the HarmonyOS 2.0 developer beta testing phase with a number of Huawei flagship phones.
The initial models come from Huawei P40, Mate 30, and MatePad Pro series, while others had to wait for the public beta testing in the Developer phase.
On April 21, Huawei opened more testing slots in the developer testing pool and confirmed Mate 40 series, Mate X2, and other Huawei devices as the participants in the first phase.
Following the successful registration, these phone owners received the latest software build beta through OTA update.
Now, Huawei is recruiting the second phase of the HarmonyOS 2.0 developer open beta program for 7 more devices. These phones will be getting the OTA update notification to download the update.
