Huawei is planning to launch the first Harmony OS developers' beta on December 18 and is expecting to have a public beta out by April. Executives said 90% of the Huawei and Honor phones will be able to move to the new OS and today we spotted a list, courtesy of Huawei Central, with over 40 devices eligible for the switch.
Interestingly enough, the list includes the Honor V40, Huawei nova 8 and Huawei nova 8 Pro phones despite these now even being officially announced yet.
While HC itself confirmed these three phones are incoming and not officially confirmed in any way, the Huawei-centric website rarely is giving misleading information. Nevertheless, the website compiled all the Huawei and Honor devices through various leaks and the interesting thing is only nova, P, and Mate series devices are in line for Harmony OS 2.0 - no mention of the Enjoy/Y lineup.
Looking at the Honor devices, the brand is doing a similar thing - no entry-level phones in line, not the Honor 9 series, nor the Honor 30i or Honor 30 Youth. It looks like all devices with GMS are not switching and Huawei is slowly going to phase them out.
The list of eligible devices also includes three watches and three tablets by Huawei. Interestingly enough, the GT 2 Pro is going to arrive with Harmony OS pre-installed - the wearable runs Lite OS currently (you can check out our review).
