Following the launch of their Mate 20 lineup, Huawei has confirmed that EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9 Pie is being rolled out to select phones. The announcement also revealed that a maximum of 5,000 users per phone will be rolled out the limited update and those have to have been enrolled on Huawei’s beta testing program.
The update shifts the firmware to version 126.96.36.199 to all the compatible devices which include the Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 Porsche Edition, Mate RS Porsche Design, P20, P20 Pro, Honor 10, Honor V10 and Honor Play.
In case you’re enrolled for beta testing, head over to the Beta Tester app and select Upgrade Early Adoption under Services. The update is limited to 5,000 users of each of the nine Huawei smartphones.
What’s interesting to note is that the update weighs in at under 4GB, meaning you need enough free storage to download and install the update with ease. The latest update comes in as a stable update to the Mate 10 since it has already been rolled out to non-beta users in Europe. It’s yet to be seen which security patch the devices are seeded with.
Indian users of the above-mentioned phones will receive local languages support, Indian national calendar and deeper Paytm integration in addition to EMUI 9.0-based features. EMUI 9.0 brings faster app launch speeds, better one-hand operations, a new password vault d GPU Turbo 2.0.
