HarmonyOS 2.0 Beta for Mobile Developers
Today Huawei officially held the HarmonyOS 2.0 Mobile Developer Beta release event, bringing a lot of information about HarmonyOS 2.0 in detail.
HarmonyOS 2.0 is another major step forward in Huawei’s move away from Google to build its ecosystem. It was first unveiled at the Huawei Developer Conference held on September 10 this year, and today the Beta version for smartphones was officially released for developers.
Huawei said HarmonyOS 2.0 is for the Internet of Everything, and different terminal device applications without repeated development, full-scene multi-device development as simple as a single device, distributed application framework will be complex inter-device collaboration encapsulated into a simple interface, services can be divided and combined and flow, easy to achieve cross-device application collaboration.
At the same time, distributed UI controls multiply the efficiency of multi-terminal UI development, adapting to a variety of screen types and interaction methods. Besides, for developers, Huawei also brings DevEco Studio 2.0 Beta-3 version, which is designed for efficient development of cross-terminal applications, with project templates and real-time preview, high-quality coding, multiplying development efficiency; distributed debugging, high-efficiency debugging, and A breakpoint to adjust cross-end code, direct step Into; ARM server-based simulation is infinitely close to the real machine. It solves the development pain points and meets the needs of efficient development.
Besides, Huawei also brought HarmonyOS developer innovation competition, giving up to a 1.5 million RMB bonus award. All of these are for developers and partners, for us ordinary consumers what we want to see most is the difference in operation and interface between HarmonyOS 2.0 and the phones we are using now, Huawei has also opened public beta recruitment for HarmonyOS 2.0 Mobile Developer Beta in its official channel, but there are also quite high conditions restrictions.
HarmonyOS 2.0 Beta Supported Devices
- Phones: Huawei P40, P40 Pro, Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro (model list ANA-AN00, ELS-AN00, TAS-AL00, TAS-AN00 LIO-AL00, LIO-AN00)
- Tablets: MatePad Pro (model list MRX-AL19, MRX-W09, MRX-AN19)
For developers: Individual/enterprise developers who need to be authenticated on the official website of Huawei Developer Alliance. Comprehensive information from the above, ordinary users who want to experience the Beta version of HarmonyOS 2.0 still have very many restrictions, so the current version is still good for us to see, and users who have the technical strength in this area can bring more sharing about HarmonyOS 2.0.
