Update, September 9 2019 (8:53AM ET): We already know that the EMUI 10 beta hit Chinese P30 series devices from yesterday (September 8). But what if all you care about is the stable release?
Well, 9to5Google attended an EMUI 10 session at IFA 2019, and discovered a roadmap for the new update. The roadmap notes that EMUI 10 will launch alongside the Mate 30 series on September 19. But here’s when we can apparently expect EMUI 10 to hit your phone:
- November 2019 – P30, P30 Pro
- December 2019 – Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 RS, Mate 20 X (4G), Honor 20, Honor View 20
- March 2020 – P30 Lite, P20 series, Mate 10 series
- Q2 2020 – Other models
It’s unclear whether the Honor 20 entry refers to all Honor 20 series devices or not. But you’d expect the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro to both be included at the very least. It’s also a little disappointing that the P30 Lite is lagging so far behind the flagship P30 models on the reported timeline. Then again, at least the P30 Lite is listed — unlike the Mate 20 Lite.
As for other models not listed on this apparent roadmap? Well, it seems like you’ll either have to ask Huawei or wait until Q2 2020 to see if your device is included.
Either way, you should expect Google support with these devices as the U.S. trade ban only affects new models at this point.
Original article, August 9 2019 (6:23AM ET): Huawei’s EMUI is one of the more divisive Android skins around, but the Chinese brand has done a great job of improving it over the years. EMUI 10 was officially unveiled at Huawei’s Developer Conference along with a few details about when to expect the EMUI 10 beta release.
According to Huawei, the EMUI 10 beta will be available for the Huawei P30 series from September 8, 2019. There’s no word if the beta will be available for global users on this date, or if it will be restricted to the Chinese market.
The company adds that the EMUI 10 beta will also be accessible on Huawei Mate 20 series — i.e. the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X, and Mate 20 RS). Huawei didn’t reveal any launch timelines or markets for the beta here either.
The Chinese brand hasn’t revealed much about EMUI 10 at the conference — where it also revealed its open-source HarmonyOS platform — although it’s confirmed that it features a better dark mode (including APIs for third-party developers), and improved cross-device connectivity. The conference is scheduled to end on August 11, so we might learn more about the new update yet.
We’ve contacted Huawei representatives for more details regarding the EMUI 10 beta roll-out, and will update the article accordingly. What would you like to see in EMUI? Give us your thoughts below!
