Huawei is set to announce EMUI 10.1 alongside the P40 series tomorrow, with the new flagships likely candidates as the first smartphones to run the latest version of Huawei's OS. The announcement has been met with considerable criticism from people still awaiting EMUI 10 and Android 10 on their Huawei smartphones, though.

With Huawei announcing earlier this month that it would be releasing the P40 series on March 26, the company has now confirmed that EMUI 10.1 will be too. As its name suggests, EMUI 10.1 will likely be an incremental update, and it will certainly be based on Android 10.

Described as offering smarter ways to unwind, mingle and multitask, nothing has been confirmed about what EMUI 10.1 will offer over EMUI 10. However, the responses to Huawei's teasers posted in the last three days highlight the levels of dissatisfaction felt towards the company's rollout of EMUI 10.

As we have discussed previously, Huawei is issuing EMUI 10 in batches. On a support page, Huawei implores people to remain patient until their device receives the OS upgrade. In our experience, it can take over four months for EMUI 10 to reach certain handsets, which is something that Huawei has failed to communicate to people.

Seeing as Huawei lists EMUI 10 as "TBD" for some devices like the P30 Lite, announcing a new version of its in-house OS was always going to frustrate people. Nonetheless, it serves as another reminder that Huawei remains one of the tardiest of Android OEMs at delivering software updates.
