Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro start getting the EMUI 10.1 (Magic UI 3.1) update in Europe

Alongside the launch of its flagship P40 series earlier this year, Huawei rolled out a slightly upgraded version of its custom Android 10-based skin called EMUI 10.1. Shortly after the launch, the company shared an update roadmap detailing the EMUI 10.1 beta release timeline for older Huawei and Honor devices. Since then, the company has rolled out beta updates for a bunch of devices in its portfolio, with some premium devices even receiving stable updates. Last month, the company shared a list of all Huawei and Honor smartphones that were scheduled to receive the EMUI 10.1/Magic UI 3.1 update this year. Keeping in sync with its release schedule, Huawei has now started rolling out EMUI 10.1 (Magic UI 3.1 in this case) to the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro in Europe.

According to recent posts on our forums and on the Honor subreddit, Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro users in Europe have now started receiving the EMUI 10.1/Magic UI 3.1 update on their devices. The update (build no. 10.1.0.230) brings all the new features introduced with the Huawei P40 series earlier this year, including a preloaded app called “MeeTime” for video calls, Huawei’s digital assistant Celia, multi-screen collaboration, new fingerprint animations, and a cross-device photo gallery.

It’s worth noting that while some users have revealed that the update is currently available through the Support app, several other users have not received the update notification on their devices. This leads us to believe that Huawei is pushing the EMUI 10.1 update in a staged fashion and it should reach all users in the coming weeks. In case you haven’t received the OTA update notification yet, you can manually check for the update by navigating to the Update section in the Support app on your Honor 20 and 20 Pro.
