As we all know, the smartphone-compatible HarmonyOS 2.0 beta went live in December 2020 but the company confirmed at the unveiling of its latest foldable – the Mate X2 – on 22 February 2021 that, “flagship phone users will be able to upgrade their phones to HarmonyOS starting from this April,” with the X2 being the first smartphone to get the upgrade.
In the end that April date slipped back to June, but either way upgrading to HarmonyOS will soon be possible .
The company says that nearly 100 Huawei devices are set to receive the HarmonyOS 2 upgrade from today, including the Mate 40 series, Mate 30 series, P40 series, Mate X2, and last year’s MatePad Pro series.
In Q3 this year the list will expand to the Mate Xs, Mate 20 series, Nova 8 series, Nova 7 series, Nova 6 series, and MatePad series.
In Q4 the list expands again, to include various Huawei smart TVs, along with the Mate 20 X series, Mate X, P30 series, and MediaPad M6 tablets.
Finally, the company promises that in the first half of 2022 it will even deliver the upgrade to devices as old as the Mate 10 and Mate 9 series, P20 and P10 series, Nova 5 series, and MediaPad M5 series tablets.
