Huawei had signalled that it would start to push OTAs that converted the UI on several of its newer devices from that of EMUI to HarmonyOS soon, starting with the ultra-premium Mate X2, earlier. Now, some well-known leakers claim to have experienced this major software upgrade.

They include Changan Digital King and Digital Chat Station, who either claim to have either heard that there are users out there with phones that have updated to HarmonyOS, or to have the new software on their own devices already. Furthermore, the YouTube channel CREATOR STUDIO has posted a new video of an alleged walkthrough of the new interface on a Mate X2.

According to this clip, the foldable phablet is running "HarmonyOS 2.0.0 Developer Beta3". Nevertheless, the various leakers claim it has been released to ordinary end-users. Huawei asserts that the new OS has been built from scratch; nevertheless, its latest leak suggests its UI has much in common with Android (and, increasingly, iOS), multiple homescreens, gesture-based navigation, app icons that expand with more information or options on long-pressing and all.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
