A week after being readily available in India, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is now being seeded with an update that improves the already top-of-the-line features of the flagship phone and also brings the latest Android security patches from Google.
The update weighs in at 523MB and shifts the build number of the Mate 20 Pro to version C316E11R1P16. The update features the latest EMUI version 184.108.40.206 with Google’s November 2018 security updates. The highlight of the update comes in the form of faster facial unlocking through the 3D biometric sensor on the front. The in-display fingerprint scanner is also expected to be faster than before.
The changelog posted by Android Authority also reveals that Huawei has improved the quality of the pictures clicked through the camera and also detects a location more precisely while using Google Maps. The update also fixes a bug where Google Messages didn’t display a notification badge.
The update will be rolled out in a phased manner, meaning it’ll take a few weeks for the package to be made available to all Mate 20 Pro units across the globe.
