Huawei has finally started rolling out stable versions of its all-singing, all-dancing EMUI 10 operating system (based on Android 10) for the P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro.
Numerous P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro owners in Europe have taken to Reddit to announce they’ve received a final version of the software. The new build is dubbed 10.0.0.168 and weighs in at a pretty hefty 4.5GB, so you should probably make sure you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network before downloading it.
You can check for the Huawei update on your device by heading to Settings > System > Software updates.
Don’t see the new software? Don’t worry. It’s likely Huawei is rolling out EMUI 10 to devices gradually, so you should see it appear soon.
EMUI 10 is Huawei’s newest operating system that was first unveiled at its scheduled Developer Conference back in August. The software is easily the Chinese vendor’s best yet, chiefly for its new design that makes it easier to use large devices (like the P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro) with one hand by placing the majority of app content towards the middle and bottom of the display à la Samsung’s One UI.
It’s taken Huawei far too long, but EMUI 10 finally lets you access your app drawer by swiping up from the bottom of the screen rather than forcing users to place a button on their home screen that took up precious space.
Huawei phones have always placed a heavy emphasis on their cameras – EMUI 10 does the same. The software dramatically alters the aesthetic of the camera application by introducing a simplified layout that’s more intuitive overall.
There’s also a number of other new features worth shouting about in EMUI 10 with our favourite being the ability to more meticulously customise your always-on display.
Not only will fans be able to add clock faces and pictures to their always-on display, but Huawei has also launched an always-on display market that’ll provide access to a swathe of designs created by third-parties.
And of course, EMUI 10 boasts a wealth of Google features in Android 10 such as refined navigation gestures, improved notifications and new privacy features.
Express.co.uk went hands-on with EMUI 10 back in August and has since tested the final version of the software, too.
