Shenzhen-based tech giant Huawei announced on July 18 that its new product launch event is scheduled for July 27.

The devices supported by Huawei HarmonyOS 3.0 Developer Beta version include the P50 series, Mate 40 series and MatePad Pro 12.6-inch 2021 model.
In early July, HarmonyOS 3.0 Developer Beta version began to be updated on users’ devices. According to the firm’s update log, HarmonyOS 3.0 Beta brings intelligent experience of the whole scenario and comprehensive improvement in interaction design, multi-device interconnection, performance and user care.
A popular tech industry commentator with Weibo username “Digital Chat Station” also said that HarmonyOS 3.0 Beta is compatible with AOSP 12, adding functions including super-terminal and multi-device mobile communication sharing and super desktop.
