During HDC 2022, Huawei unveiled various HarmonyOS technologies, including details on HarmonyOS 3.1 and HarmonyOS 4, meanwhile, here we connect these dots with the upcoming Huawei P60 and Mate 60 series.
Huawei P60 and Mate 60 series are expected to launch next year, on the other hand, the company also gave us a hint of what’s going on by launching HarmonyOS 3.1 at HDC 2022 and keeping HarmonyOS 4 for next year .
Huawei had a tradition of releasing two flagships in one year, including a P-series and Mate series smartphone. In 2021, Huawei broke tradition due to the lack of assets required to build new devices. It only launched the P50 series to at least stay in the latest flagship race.
This year, the Huawei Mate 50 series marked its appearance but there was no P60. Over the past two years, Huawei has only launched two flagships.
In terms of software, the P50 series comes pre-packaged with HarmonyOS 2, while the Mate 50 comes with HarmonyOS 3.
The entries reveal that the company will resume the dual year tradition from 2023. If true, then we might see the Huawei P60 series packed with HarmonyOS 3.1 as the software will launch in the first quarter of 2023.
On the other hand, Huawei Mate 60 could be launched in the fourth quarter of 2023, while HarmonyOS 4 will also be announced around the date during HDC 2023.
Currently, Huawei has not revealed the smartphone-related features of HarmonyOS 3 but we can expect a major performance boost as it comes with a new OpenHarmony 3.2 base.
Also, there is mention of an improved system connectivity scenario designed specifically for HarmonyOS 3.1. Therefore, we might also see new additions in Super Device. However, no graphical version has been detected so far.
HarmonyOS 4 is currently unknown and no specific announcements have been made about this version of HarmonyOS. More information about this could only be known in 2023.
