Huawei has made important software and hardware announcements. The company showed the new version of its Android rival operating system, Harmony OS, at the event. Richard Yu, who took the stage at the event, stated that the HarmonyOS 2 version is actively used on 300 million Huawei devices.
Improved homescreen, privacy and performance
The new operating systemcomes directly with the name “HarmonyOS 3” and does not have huge innovations, but it makes the current experience even better. According to the statement, the version improves security and performance.
In trials on the Huawei P50 Pro, it was calculated that HarmonyOS 3 operating system is 18 percent more fluid than HarmonyOS 2. The operating system increases the performance of the most used popular applications by 14 percent and the application opening by 7 percent.
The HarmonyOS 3 operating system, which allows a phone to connect with two different wireless headphones, also develops the “Super Device” ecosystem feature and enlarges the support list. Within the scope of Super Device, multiple Huawei devices can function as a single product, removing the limits between different devices.
The HarmonyOS 3 operating system, which comes with new 3D emojis, paves the way for people to stack “widget” plugins and create files of different sizes. It has advanced customisation options with many features to make life easier for visually and deaf people.
Devices with beta version are as follows:

The first Huawei device to come out of the box with HarmonyOS 3 was the MatePad Pro 11 tablet model, which will be released to global markets. The standard design device has an 11-inch 120 Hz OLED display in two different versions.
At Huawei’s event, the new Huawei Watch 3 Pro model with ECG feature was also introduced. The model, which has a standard design, brings a very long battery life of up to 21 days, like other watches from Huawei.
