Gizchina News of the week
We talked about Honor devices above but don’t allow that to confuse you. Recall that before Huawei sold Honor back in 2020, the company already had several Honor phones. Those Honor phones are still under the care of Huawei. However, Honor mobile phones produced after Huawei sold Honor are not under Huawei’s care and do not use the Harmony system.
HarmonyOS 4 Beta Registration
Users found that Huawei has made preparations for the early adopters of the HarmonyOS 4 upgrade in advance.
