To try the new OS yourself, you will need to sign up on this page in Chinese. If approved, you will receive a notification email. Then, the update will be pushed on your compatible Huawei phone or tablet.

Reports said that Harmony OS 2.0 has a similar-looking UI from the EMUI 11 based on Android. But, it is different from the very core. Since this is just the early stage of Harmony, we can expect many UI changes in the near future. Then you can revert to EMUI 11 after testing if you want to.

Anyway, OS runs most of the Android apps we are used to as promised during its first launch in 2019.

Aside from Android apps, Huawei shared a developer competition awards totaling CNY 1.5 million (around PHP 11 million) for new apps on the OS as well as an IDE + emulator for devs to make their testing easier.

To recap, HarmonyOS or Harmony OS (also known as Hongmeng OS in China) was first made available on Smart TVs. Then recently, Huawei launched a HarmonyOS car in partnership with BYD.

HarmonyOS is a microkernel-based and cross-platform lightweight OS designed to run across different devices and scenarios. It will work on your phone, tablet, car, smartwatches, and many more. Its UI will adjust to fit the screen of that device and what features it needs.

This is an interesting development so far. Stay tuned for more info.
