Starting this Wednesday, December 16, developers and people interested in testing Huawei’s Android replacement for smartphones can now have access to the first beta version of HarmonyOS 2.0 before the official launch.
The idea, of course, is to allow developers to adapt their applications to the platform before the official launch, which has no official date, but should take place by the middle of 2021. That said, a short video published on YouTube shows the first details of the system operating for Huawei and Honor smartphones.
In it we can see a Huawei P40 running the new platform of the manufacturer and running smoothly and very fluidly, with fast animations and without gagging. The interface, in general, seems to keep all the details of EMUI 11 on Android, without major visual changes or exclusive differentials, just a new operating system, but based entirely on the experience that current users have.
Huawei has already confirmed that in January users will be able to enter the public beta test and it is expected that the system will receive greater stability and error correction, as beta versions are known to be not yet ready for launch and, therefore, tests are conducted on a limited basis.
It has already been confirmed by Huawei that the company will launch smartphones with HarmonyOS 2.0 installed at the factory for users in 2021. And although it has not guaranteed which will be the first model, there is a possibility for us to see the Huawei P50 with the new system.
