Huawei has recently released the HarmonyOS 2.0 developer beta public test version with update sizes up to 6.20GB. It is said that more devices will be upgraded after May 31, 2021. This update reveals some UI changes and icons.
According to the changes in HarmonyOS 2.0, the current developer version of HarmonyOS 2.0 seems to have little difference in UI from the EMUI 11 version based on Android 10. Below check the HarmonyOS 2.0 video Tablet as well as the phone version.
Here’s the first look at HarmonyOS 2.0:
1. New loading icon and more icons
Three-point buttons are directly changed to four.
2. Card interaction
At present, most of the apps in “Huawei Public Test” adopt a “card-like” interactive idea-the most obvious ones are “Negative One Screen (Smart Assistant · Today)”, “My Huawei”, and even “File Manager”.
3. Slide down the menu bar to have more secondary menus
4. Support more application clones
5. The drop-down of the message pop-up window supports quick calling out of the split-screen small window
6. Real-time blur capability
When you open some applications in the drop-down menu bar, you can feel the new visual experience brought by Gaussian blur, but it seems that only Mate 40 series and Honor V40 models support this feature.
Huawei will increase the recruitment of Mate X2, Mate 40 series, Huawei Smart Screen S, Huawei Smart Screen S Pro and P40 series, Mate 30 series, MatePad Pro series, and other models of HarmonyOS 2.0 developer Beta recruitment.
The list of system versions currently supporting OTA upgrades is Mate X2, Mate40, Mate40E, Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, Mate 40 RS Porsche Design, Huawei Smart Screen S, Huawei Smart Screen S Pro, P40, P40 Pro, P40 Pro+, Mate 30 4G, Mate 30 Pro 4G, Mate 30 5G, Mate 30 Pro 5G, Mate 30 RS Porsche Design, Mate 30E Pro 5G, MatePad Pro, and MatePad Pro 5G.
