Android 9 will be replaced by Android 10 on a selection of devices released since 2017.
23 Huawei smartphones will soon benefit from the upgrade from Android 9 to Android 10. This concerns: phones marketed in 2019, 2018 and 2017. As commendable as it is, the effort is far from trivial.
As a reminder, the Chinese firm has not been authorized since May 2019 to integrate Google services on its new devices. Example: the Mate 30 Pro presented in September 2019 is deprived of the application store Google Play Store, Google Maps, YouTube …
To save the furniture, Huawei is focusing on 3 axes:
– To exploit again and again the potential of phones that escaped the ban (P30, P30 Pro).
– Present as new phones marketed elsewhere in the world just before the ban (example: the Huawei Y6s of January 2020 is in fact the Enjoy 9e launched in China in spring 2019).
– Doping Huawei Mobile Services, Huawei services and applications intended to replace Google Mobile Services.
In short, Huawei is in a delicate position. By injecting Android 10 on 23 phones, the manufacturer is fighting back, sending a clear message. It presents itself as a manufacturer that does not drop its old smartphones, and by extension its customers.
From the last days of January 2020, 6 Huawei phones will receive a notification inviting them to download and install EMUI10, the new interface powered by Android 10:
– P30 Pro
– Mate 20 Pro
– Mate 20
– Mate 20 X (4G)
– New 5T
In the coming months, 17 other references will benefit from the same preferential treatment:
– P30 lite
– P20 Pro
– Porsche Design Mate 20 RS
– Mate 20 X (5G)
– Mate 20 lite
– Porsche Design Mate RS
– Mate 10
– Mate 10 Pro
– Porsche Design Mate 10
– Nova 4e
– P smart 2019
– P smart + 2019
– P smart Pro
– P Smart Z
– Nova 4
– Nova Lite 3
The importance of updating
Updating the operating system is the big flaw in Android smartphones. Manufacturers sell so many models that they end up quickly abandoning upgrades on many devices.
To put it another way, when you buy an Android, it is impossible to estimate the number of major updates (from Android 9 to 10 for example) that you will receive.
Conversely, investing an insane amount in the latest iPhone guarantees you at least 4 to 5 major updates of iOS, Apple’s mobile operating system.
Huawei – Which smartphones are updated to EMUI 10?
Huawei announces the complete list of smartphones that will receive EMUI 10. Is your smartphone one of them?
Huawei remains stuck in the web of the US government but continues to update its old smartphones. The Chinese company has just published a list of smartphones that will receive its EMUI 10 overlay based on Android 10.
Not all of its devices are penalized by US sanctions. Some had already had a taste of the new features of EMUI 10, but the system is now ready for international deployment.
The 22 Huawei smartphones that will receive EMUI 10
The first smartphones to benefit from this update are the Mate 20 and P30. Among them are the Huawei P30 Pro, P30, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 and Mate 20 X.
The Huawei Nova 5T released more recently is also part of this first wave.
There is nothing to do the update is done via OTA. You will receive a notification when the update is ready to be installed on your smartphone.
16 other Huawei smartphones are also among the lucky ones (see the full list below). There are models as old as the Mate 10. We will have to wait a little longer.
The update will be phased in over the coming months.
You will notice that there is no Honor smartphone in the set. They may be the subject of a separate communication.
What’s new in EMUI 10
The EMUI 10 overlay is based on Android 10. It is an important update for the company’s smartphones. It brings several novelties. We can cite some of the most important.
In addition to improving performance, security and smoothness, EMUI 10 has a new Dark mode. This has the particularity of forcing applications to switch to dark mode even if they do not have one.
The update also brings a new multi-screen system to simply use your smartphone with a PC and Windows.
We can also cite the latest version of the GPU Turbo for video games.

Huawei: 23 smartphones will go under EMUI 10 (Android 10) in stable version
Huawei has just shared a new roadmap for the deployment of EMUI 10 on Android 10 on its smartphones for this year, and 23 new models are affected.
The American embargo which prevents Huawei from having Android licenses from Google for its new smartphones does not prevent the Chinese brand from continuing to develop its terminals already on the market.
This is how 23 smartphones from the brand or its subsidiary Honor will soon benefit from EMUI 10, the manufacturer’s overlay developed on the basis of Android 10.
Huawei specifies that this is a switch to the stable version of EMUI 10 which is, so far, still offered as a beta version. For this month of January, 6 references are already concerned:
- Huawei P30
- Huawei P30 Pro
- Huawei Mate 20
- Huawei Mate 20 Pro
- Huawei Mate 20 X
- Huawei Nova 5T
Then, 17 other smartphones will benefit from the update over the coming months:
- Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design
- Huawei Mate 20 X 5G
- Huawei P30 Lite
- Huawei Nova 4G
- Huawei Nova 4
- Huawei Nova Lite 3
- Huawei P20
- Huawei P20 Pro
- Huawei Mate 10
- Huawei Mate 10 Pro
- Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design
- Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design
- Huawei Mate 20 Lite
- Huawei P Smart 2019
- Huawei P Smart+ 2019
- Huawei P Smart Pro
- Huawei P Smart Z
The update will be broadcast automatically and offered to the user once it is available, but it will be possible to check in the system settings if EMUI 10 is available for download. Huawei recalls in passing that currently, more than 10 million smartphones have already switched to EMUI 10 in beta.
EMUI 10: Huawei is now rolling out Android 10 to the P30 Lite
Huawei has just launched the deployment of the EMUI 10 update on the P30 Lite. According to reports, Android 10 is already available for download in several countries in Asia. The firmware should soon arrive in Europe. We explain how to install the update as soon as it is available. available.
The Android 10 update is coming to the Huawei P30 Lite, report our colleagues from Piunika Web on January 15, 2020. The firmware has already been installed by users residing in Asia, including countries such as Sri Lanka. As a reminder, the Huawei P30 Lite has been part of the Android 10 / EMUI 10 beta program since last October. Recently, the test program was closed, thus announcing the deployment of the final version.
HOW TO INSTALL ANDROID 10 ON THE P30 LITE?
In detail, the firmware deployed on smartphones weighs 3.93 GB. The weight of the update is obviously likely to vary depending on the country. In view of Huawei’s habits, the stable version of Android 10 should land on the European continent, including France, in the coming weeks. Unsurprisingly, the first models to receive the update are running sous EMUI 9.1. To check if EMUI 10 is already available on your device, follow our tutorial:
- Go to the Settings from your phone
- Go to the section System
- Then press Software update
- Finally, click on Check for updates
- Press on Download and install
Before starting the installation, make sure that your smartphone is connected to a Wifi network and that it still has at least 50% of autonomy. As a reminder, EMUI 10 will be available on 35 smartphones from the Huawei brand or its Honor subsidiary. Have you ever been able to install Android 10 on your Huawei or Honor phone? We await your testimony in the comments below.
Huawei claims more than 10 million devices running Android 10
Although heavily involved in the trade dispute between the United States and China, Huawei is keen to claim its position as a heavyweight in the Android sphere. For this, the manufacturer has already announced more than 10 million devices running Android 10.
Huawei may have lost access to Google’s apps, but the powerful Chinese manufacturer continues to bet on Android, and it doesn’t hesitate to let it be known. While Android 10 has only been officially available for a few months, and only for a few weeks (beta aside) in the form offered on Huawei terminals, namely the EMUI 10 overlay, the manufacturer announced on December 20. last to have crossed the threshold of 10 million devices benefiting from the latest version of Android. In the background, Huawei shows us that its deployment policy is voluntary and that it follows a pace at least sustained, since three weeks earlier, a press release reported a million terminals served.
The first models to benefit from EMUI 10 were the references of the P30, Mate 30 (upon release) and Mate 20 families. They were notably followed by their predecessors, that is to say variations of the Mate 10 and of the P20, quickly bringing the list of updated devices to around thirty names. Other phones have also joined the beta program and must follow suit before the end of winter, such as the Honor 8X and certain variants of the Honor 20. In fact, Huawei is currently one of the best students in this area. tracking software, even if all countries are not in the same boat.
It should be noted, however, that this voluntary approach is not only the result of a surge of goodwill or a need for communication. With the switch to EMUI 10, Huawei is laying the foundations for a functional ecosystem without Google’s applications, which it no longer has the right to install by default. The development of alternatives to Google Maps, Google Drive or Gmail would also be in the pipeline to quickly enrich EMUI and App Gallery, the equivalent of the Play Store signed Huawei. Recall that the manufacturer now bases its operating system on the AOSP source of Android (open source), so that it runs no risk of being deprived of the OS in the near future.
