Although Huawei is not completely out from the rough weather, it is still pushing the Android alternative, Harmony OS to more platforms. Although there is no official confirmation, tipster Digital Chat Station, on Weibo (via GizChina), states that the Huawei Mate 40 Pro 4G version now has a new certification. The specs remain the same as the 5G variant, which has already been launched last year, what’s new this time is that instead of Android-based EMUI, the new handsets are listed with HarmonyOS 2.0. If true, this will also be Huawei’s first smartphone to feature HarmonyOS 2.0 out of the box.

In case you are wondering, Huawei launched HarmonyOS 2.0 back in September last year during its Huawei Developer’s Conference (HDC) in China. At that time, the reports cited Consumer business CEO Richard Yu saying that Huawei is ready with a Harmony OS smartphone but has not been able to launch it considering it was already in an agreement with Google.

As per the firm, HarmonyOS is meant to integrate several devices with fast connection, capability collaboration, and resource sharing.
