HarmonyOS 3 Features
The third edition of HarmonyOS gives programmers access to more than 6,000 APIs, enabling dynamic, well-designed applications.

A significant technology of the HarmonyOS device ecosystem, the Super Device feature, will also receive additional upgrades in HarmonyOS 3 in addition to these inputs.
In addition to Super Home Screen, there is a new cross-device sharing function that makes sharing between smartphones easier. Another helpful HarmonyOS 3 feature i.e. large folders, will soon have customization options for the most extreme use scenarios.
Moreover, Huawei has put a lot of effort into cross-device connection scenarios to improve connectivity between HarmonyOS devices, which is crucial for third-party connections.
Another feature of HarmonyOS 3 gives you brand-new security and privacy settings to understand how apps and the phone itself operate with your permissions. However, more features and settings will be made available after the launch.
HarmonyOS 3 Supported Devices
Although Huawei hasn’t released an official statement with a list of compatible devices. It is expected that the key flagship devices will get the upgrade. HarmonyOS 3 may support the Huawei Mate Xs, Huawei Smart Screen SE series, P50, and P40 series, as well as the Mate 40 series.
