Huawei Mate 10 Lite Android Oreo beta program reportedly opens up in Pakistan
The Huawei P20 series is the talk of the town lately thanks to the ridiculous camera specifications of the Pro model, but it wasn’t too long ago that Huawei announced the Mate 10 series of devices. The Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro garnered most of the attention as they were the first devices with Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 970 system-on-chip, but Huawei also launched a lower-end Mate 10 Lite model with quad-cameras. That phone launched with Android 7.1 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 on board, but it appears that Huawei is finally opening up an official Android Oreo beta program with EMUI 8.0 for users in Pakistan.
According to several members on our forum, the beta program has opened up for model RNE-L21C185. RNE is the Huawei Mate 10 Lite while L21 tells us the variant and C185 is the region (Pakistan). Users can sign up for the beta test on Huawei’s Friendly User Test (FUT) page and after signing up can expect to receive the update within a few days. So far, several members have reported success in signing up, but none have actually received the Android Oreo update. As such, we can’t say whether or not the update will bring Project Treble compatibility.
We should note that the update is available for flashing right now on this model from FunkyHuawei.club, though that is a paid service so many would prefer to wait for the update to roll out officially for the device. Keep up to date on the latest news for the Huawei Mate 10 Lite by following the official XDA forum for the device.
