The second iteration of HarmonyOS 2.0 (HongMeng OS in China), will be launching in beta form first to a few users starting from the 10th of September 2020. The beta testing is scheduled to end in December and that is also when end users will start to receive the HarmonyOS update.

According to Huawei, the beta SDK is now available to all developers and it includes the smartwatch, smart TV, and automotive head unit. Developers can start to build their apps and optimize them for HarmonyOS before Huawei phones with HarmonyOS 2.0 officially starts getting pushed out to the end users. Speaking of devices with HarmonyOS, they are expected to make an official debut as soon as 2021.

Huawei also unveiled OpenHarmony (OH) project, which is the open-source version of HarmonyOS. This will be similar to the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) Project. Starting today, OH deployment is only available to devices with up to 128MB RAM, but the company is looking to expand the capacity to handle devices with more than 4GB of RAM by October 2021.
