Huawei officially confirmed earlier that some of its EMUI 11 phones, based on the Android 10 operating system from Google, will be able to install its operating system (HarmonyOS 2.0), HarmonyOS 2.0.
The new version of the Chinese company’s operating system will be released to developers in stages, and the first beta version for phones is expected to be launched during the month of December.
According to (Wang Zhenglu) – Head of Software Department at Huawei – the open-source platform of the system will be available to developers from December 18, and the system will reach the first experimental units by January or February 2021.
Wang revealed that all employees at Huawei are working on building a new ecosystem around the idea of (Harmony) and so far everything is going according to plan. And when initial employee reports come back in the first quarter of 2021, a public beta is expected to launch in April 2021.
The executive said: About 90 percent of the company’s smartphones should be ready for update as soon as there is a final update for the launch.
According to a post on the Chinese social networking site (Weibo) published early last October, phones containing the Kirin 9000 processor from Huawei will be the first to obtain the system, and this includes: Mate 40 series phones 40. Then you will get phones that contain a Kirin 990 5G processor, and this includes: P40 phones and (Mate 30) Mate 30.

It is noteworthy that a Huawei official had stated last August that the company does not intend during the current year to launch any smartphone running the HarmonyOS operating system, but rather will continue to rely on the Android system.
And Huawei had also revealed, last August, the HarmonyOS system, which it is promoting, as better than the Android system and faster, as it was built using fewer lines of code, and it is able to run smart products, such as cars, TVs, and watches.
