But immediately after the launch event, Huawei opened the door to the first closed beta sign-up in the first round of the Huawei device. These devices include models from various platforms, such as smartphones, tablets, and smart screens.
The company continues with the release of the first HarmonyOS software update for users selected in the first round. This is Huawei’s new operating system to replace the current EMUI 11 with a completely new user interface, features, and changes.
A recent report hinted that Huawei may skip a whole quarter (3 months) of the actual timeline and start early adaptation for eligible devices ahead of the announced time.
Closing in, Huawei has now officially started to recruit users for the second phase of the closed HarmonyOS beta testing for devices:
- Huawei P30
- Huawei P30 Pro
- Huawei Mate 20 X 5G
- Huawei Mate X
- Huawei Nova 5 Pro
- Huawei Nova 5
- Huawei Nova 5i Pro

Originally, these devices decided to begin their HarmonyOS beta flight by the end of this year in China, which shows how smoother the development of HarmonyOS is underway in the background.
