Without Android and EMUI, but with Google services. The Google Play app store works quite well on the Huawei Mate 40 Pro + running HarmonyOS 2.0

An interesting discovery came to light after Huawei began distributing HarmonyOS over the air for a large number of its smartphones. So far, the update is available only to software developers, but they did not miss the opportunity to test the proprietary Android replacement for compatibility with Google services. It turned out to work!

Previously, Huawei did not say anything about the compatibility of HarmonyOS with Google services, which is understandable: the proprietary OS, in fact, became a response to the US sanctions and the ban on the use of Android on its smartphones – what Google services can we talk about? In addition, Huawei has its own services – HMS, which are a complete analogue of Google’s solutions and on the development of which the company spends a lot of resources. However, this does not mean at all that Google services do not work in HarmonyOS – on the contrary: as the experiment showed, everything is quite workable. As proof, screenshots of Google Play on the Mate 40 Pro + running HarmonyOS 2.0 Beta 3 (this is the latest version of the OS before the release) are provided.

At the same time, the Chinese media confirm the data that the recently announced Mate 40 Pro 4G will be the first Huawei smartphone with pre-installed HarmonyOS – a complete analogue of the usual Mate 40 Pro, but without 5G support. This model has already been certified by the local regulator, and official sales are due to begin soon. Unlike the regular Mate 40 Pro, for which HarmonyOS 2.0 will be released as an over-the-air update, the Mate 40 Pro 4G will get this OS right out of the box.
