Honor View20, Honor 20, and Honor 9X will get Magic UI 3.0 based on Android 10 globally next week
In October last year, Honor opened Magic UI 3.0 beta for the Honor View 20 and Honor 20. A month later, the company began rolling out stable Android 10 updates to both devices in multiple regions before the rollout was paused for undisclosed reasons. Now it appears the company has resolved whatever issue it had been facing and is resuming the Magic UI 3.0 rollout globally for four Honor devices.
Through a press release, Honor has announced it will be rolling out Magic UI 3.0 (EMUI 10) with Android 10 to the Honor 20, Honor 20 Pro, Honor View 20 and Honor 9X starting 15th March 2020, globally. The update will bring all the highlight features of EMUI 10 and Android 10 to the devices, including the system-wide dark mode, new navigation gestures, smoother animations, GPU Turbo for improved gaming performance, security and privacy enhancements and much more. The Magic UI 3.0 also updates the camera UI with a more modernized look and accessible video recording features such as the assistive grid, horizontal level, and timer.
For those wondering whether this update will have any impact on Google Mobile Services (GMS), it should be noted that these phones are already Google certified and users will continue to have access to all Google apps as well as GMS-dependent apps after installing the update.
Apart from the above-mentioned devices, Honor told us they are also planning to bring the Magic UI 3.0 update to the Honor 10 Lite, Honor 20 Lite, Honor 8X, Honor 9X Pro, Honor V10 and Honor 10. The company says the update is currently under testing — however, it did not reveal any details regarding the exact rollout date for these devices.
If you own the Honor 20, Honor 20 Pro, Honor View 20 or Honor 9X, keep an eye out for the Magic UI 3.0 OTA notification in the coming weeks.
