Last month, Huawei began testing the HarmonyOS 3.1 developer beta on the P50 series, and it’s now come to our understanding that the company is preparing to make it public.
According to our information, the current development of HarmonyOS 3.1 is quite fast and Huawei is almost close to the end of the developer beta. We can expect the company to release this software in early April.
The first of the models for this beta test include the P50 and Mate 50 series, but there are more smartphones that will be announced as part of the roadmap.
According to previous input, HarmonyOS 3.1 comes as a big fix and optimization in floating. Early review reveals new improvements in animations. The movements are fluid and mounted in the control panel as well as the notification panel.
Huawei has brought new options for the media manager. And new improvements have been added to the shape selection of Huawei widgets.
HarmonyOS 3.1 accelerated improvements over HarmonyOS 3.0, the software is reported to provide fast task execution and application launch.
The latest changes in the software are possible after the inclusion of HarmonyOS Design, a new design framework. Developers are now able to build better animations based on gravity-based physics systems.
Looking further into this, HarmonyOS 3.1 equips ArkTS development language developed by Huawei based on TypeScript (TS) which matches the ArkUI framework.
ArkUI framework is used to build a distributed app interface that matches different platforms and devices. Last but not least, the Ark compiler gets better with this HarmonyOS version for fast and efficient app development.
Huawei is likely to upgrade the Huawei P60 series as the first recipient of this HarmonyOS software, which will launch later this month.
The flagship launch will mark the beginning of HarmonyOS 3.1 public release for legacy devices. The first in line is also the Huawei Mate 50 and P50 series, followed by other models.
