Huawei is rolling out a hefty update to the P20 Pro smartphone. The update brings some changes to the camera UI of the flagship device in addition to the latest security signatures and bug fixes.
Weighing in at 323MB, the update shifts the build number of the device to CLT-L29 184.108.40.206(C432) through an over-the-air package. The update features the August 2018 batch of Android security updates with minor fixes and device stability optimisations. It’s disappointing to see that Huawei is only providing the August security updates when were clearly nearing the end of September.
The highlight of the update comes in the camera department where Huawei seems to have disabled the Master AI by default on its camera app. This means all AI-centric features on the triple-lens camera system have been toggled off. It’s to be noted that the same feature can manually be turned on inside the camera settings.
It’s odd to see Huawei withdrawing away from AI on the P20 Pro especially when the whole marketing campaign around the flagship smartphone involved its AI capabilities. This could be possible as a move to come clean of the real-time performance of the three camera lenses which were hindered unauthentic due to oversaturation of colours in pictured clicked in certain cases.
The latest update will be available to users in batches and if you wish to check for the same manually, you can head on to Settings > About phone > Software updates and then tap on ‘Check for updates’ on your Huawei P20 Pro.
