Huawei P30 and P30 Pro are getting their stable EMUI 10.1 updates globally
The Huawei P40 lineup comes with EMUI 10.1 out of the box, which is a slightly updated version of Huawei’s EMUI 10 software built on top of Android 10. A bunch of older devices from Huawei’s portfolio are also scheduled to get EMUI 10.1. The Huawei P30, Huawei Mate 30, and Huawei Nova 5T users across the globe, for example, received the global beta build of EMUI 10.1 around a month ago. While the Chinese OEM is planning to deliver the stable build to the Huawei Mate 30 series sometime next month, the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro are now receiving their stable EMUI 10.1 update in several European countries.
The version number of the new firmware is 10.1.0.123, and it brings in features like enhanced Always-on Display (AOD) clock styles and new fingerprint scanner animations. Huawei is also merging the latest May 2020 security patches in this update. There seems to be no prior requirement of enrolling in the initial beta testing phase to get this update as users in Spain, France, and Germany are able to download the massive OTA (around 4.59GB) through the Huawei Support app.
Interestingly, the so-called “New Edition” of the Huawei P30 Pro ships with factory-installed EMUI 10.1 which might be the reason for the quick availability of the 10.1 update to the regular P30/P30 Pro. However, Huawei is also pushing a different software version based on EMUI 10 for the phone duo with the same May 2020 security patch level (SPL) in some regions, thus the actual broad-scale EMUI 10.1 rollout for these devices might be scheduled for the next month.
Interestingly, Huawei’s new Celia voice assistant isn’t included in the current EMUI 10.1 build for the P30 series. The company has recently enabled its own virtual assistant on the Huawei P40 lineup, but there is no confirmed timeframe of its arrival on older models as of yet.
