While rumours were calling for a July 2022 launch, we’ll have to wait until September for Huawei to unveil HarmonyOS 3.0. The first tests, meanwhile, will begin in May. The information comes to us from a roadmap for the coming months revealed by an internal manufacturer. It’s possible that the Huawei Mate 50 will launch with an early version of the OS.
Users are waiting for the 3.0 update, which is starting to appear in several leaks. Earlier this year, a tipster already announced that it will be available from July 2022. It looks like the wait will eventually be a little longer. Indeed, according to information obtained by a leaker posting on Weibo, Huawei now plans to roll out HamonyOS 3.0 in September .
In fact, testing that was supposed to start in March will begin in May. We don’t yet know the reasons for this delay. However, the leaker tells us that the development of the operating system is almost complete. In addition, it seems that the interface will undergo very few changes. Huawei really preferred to focus on improving the performance of its operating system.
This information confirms what we have obtained in recent weeks. Last October it was already announced that HarmonyOS 3.0 will be faster than Xiaomi’s MIUI 13 . Finally, the leaker mentions a better connection for more devices, which will make the functionality more stable. Either way, this delay raises the question of the operating system that will benefit the Huawei Mate 50 .
The smartphone, whose launch was delayed until this year, should theoretically be released in July. It was therefore reasonable to believe that it will be one of the first to offer HarmonyOS 3.0 natively to its users. But the delay redistributes the cards. Some insiders claim that the smartphone will launch with an early version of the OS, but it’s still too early to be sure. Indeed, the latter’s official release date has not yet been announced.
