Huawei is preparing to officially announce HarmonyOS 4.0 in August, the company just confirmed in a Weibo post. An image of some ArkTS code, written to return “What to expect in August” and a big digit “4” points to next month, when the annual HDC (Huawei Developers Conference) will take place.

Previous teasers already suggested August 4, matching the date and the version.

HarmonyOS is Huawei’s in-house OS with the smartphone in the center of the whole ecosystem. According to teasers from earlier this month, the new version should improve interoperability within the 1+8+N environment.

The operating system is already in beta testing, and some users shared their first impressions in under the teaser. Phones from the P60, Mate50, and Mate 40 series are spearheading the process, but the OS is currently limited to China, and we assume the launch will also be targeted to domestic users.

The HarmonyOS branding on smartphones is still limited to China. Some of the features will undoubtedly make it to the global scene, but we expect the name to remain EMUI, as Huawei has confirmed to us multiple times that “users are not ready for the switch”.
