According to recent reports, Huawei will hold a new notebook product launch. There are speculations that it will launch two mainstream high-end models in the MateBook 13/14 series. While Huawei’s smartphone market is suffering as a result of the U.S. ban, it has no effect on its PC market. In the past few months, Huawei has been putting a lot of effort into its PC market.
As of now, there is not much information regarding the upcoming MateBook. There are reports that it will continue the design of the MateBoo 13/14 series. Furthermore, there may be an internal upgrade to the 11-generation Core and MX 450 configuration.
The company is also developing its App Store for desktop. Towards the end of last month, Huawei launched the Huawei App Store for PC. This store has five major sections including “Explore”, “Office”, “Classification”, “Management” and “Settings”. Furthermore, there are sub-sections like “Necessary for Installation”, “New Products of the Week” “Monthly Selection”, “Efficient Work”, “Video Entertainment”, “Design Zone”, etc.
As we all know, Microsoft’s official application market is in vain. Most software needs to be downloaded from the official website by users. For some novice users, they accidentally open a fake link and install some bloatware. The launch of the Huawei App Store will greatly facilitate app download on the desktop.
The first HarmonyOS smartphone may not be Huawei P50
This year, Huawei will launch a batch of new smart devices including its first mobile phones pre-installed with HarmonyOS. Now, there is news that the first mobile phone with HarmonyOS may not be the Huawei P50 as everyone expects. According to a Weibo source (@鹏鹏君), an HarmonyOS smartphone will arrive soon. However, this device may not be the P50 and it will have unique sales.
According to the report, this device is about to enter the final production stage. After its release, this phone will be available via various sales channels such as Huawei offline stores. Of course, the performance of this smartphone is worth looking forward to.
Earlier reports showed that Huawei will launch the Huawei P50 in the first quarter of 2021. The earlier speculations also claim that the Huawei 50 will be the first to use the HarmonyOS 2.0 operating system. However, considering the current report, we are not so sure now.
In order to complete the development, Huawei has launched the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile beta for developers in mid-December 2020. At the same time, the company is also opening the recruitment of the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile test version of Huawei P40, Mate 30, and MatePad Pro devices.
For now, the company limits the testing scope of HarmonyOS 2.0 to China. This means that it is HongmengOS 2.0 that is in testing. This is because HongmengOS 2.0 is the Chinese version of HarmonyOS 2.0. We expect that the first HarmonyOS smartphone will initially be for Chinese consumers and it may take some time to enter the global market.
