EMUI 10.1 roadmap reveals beta timeline for Huawei and Honor smartphones

EMUI 10.1 roadmap reveals beta timeline for Huawei and Honor smartphones

Just a few days ago, Huawei unveiled its newest series of flagship devices, which include the Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, and the Huawei P40 Pro+. The Chinese OEM is shipping a slightly upgraded version of their custom Android 10-based UI, dubbed EMUI 10.1, with the P40 lineup. One notable inclusion in EMUI 10.1 is Celia, Huawei’s own Voice Assistant, which can be invoked with the hotword “Hey Celia,” or by holding the power button for a second. Now the company has announced the rollout schedule of EMUI 10.1 beta for existing Huawei and Honor branded devices.

The current roadmap is applicable to the Chinese device variants. This internal beta will be further expanded to a series of public beta tests before concluding with the stable release of EMUI 10.1. Huawei has been known for prioritizing their home country to conduct beta testing or release updates and take several months before rolling them out worldwide. Hopefully, this incremental update doesn’t take that long, as the EMUI global Twitter handle is actively teasing EMUI 10.1.


The full list of eligible devices can be found below.
