1. Description of the public beta and early adopters activities

[Public Beta]: A beta version released to the public during the version development phase. Since the public beta version is still in the development stage, its performance may not be as ideal as the official version. For example, some applications (including third-party applications) may be unstable or incompatible, which will affect your experience. Therefore, please consider carefully whether to try it out in advance. At the same time, considering user experience and compatibility issues, the public beta early adopters may be suspended for a period of time.

In addition, before you upgrade to the public beta early adopter version, be sure to back up important data of your mobile phone in advance (if you quit the public beta early adopter activity, you need to roll back to the stable version, and this rollback operation will clear all user data).

2. Adapted models

Please make sure that the current mobile phone/tablet/smart screen system version supports the upgraded baseline version. If it is not currently on the baseline version, please upgrade to this version online before participating in the public beta and early adopters activities.

3. Matters needing attention

1. Precautions before upgrading (please read carefully):

(1) Before upgrading the beta version, please back up important data on your device. Also, confirm that the backup content is complete and valid. Avoid data loss due to data incompatibility or other unexpected situations after the upgrade.

(2) Before upgrading the beta version, please make sure that the current version of your device is on the baseline version (see 2. Adapted models for details)

(3) Please make sure that the mobile phone/tablet has more than 8GB of internal storage space. Otherwise, there will be a risk of an upgrade failure. (See storage space methods: Settings > Storage).

(4) Please make sure your device is not rooted.

(5) Please do not power off the smart screen during the upgrade process, otherwise it may cause upgrade failure or other abnormal problems.


  • (1) If your mobile phone/tablet/smart screen has been upgraded to the HarmonyOS 3.0 version, there is no need to participate in the public beta registration. Huawei has pushed the new version to HarmonyOS 3.0 users in batches.

  • (2) After the public beta is over, we will push the official version in batches for users on the beta early adopter version. Upgrading the official version will not clear user data, but it is still recommended to back up all important data to a PC or cloud before upgrading, and confirm that the backup content is complete and valid.
