Huawei has outlined its EMUI 11 upgrade plans in nine regions. Only nineteen devices will be eligible to receive EMUI 11, but most must wait until a vague Q1 2021 before Huawei's latest OS arrives. There is no word on Android 11 availability, either.

Huawei may not have finished the rollout of EMUI 10.1 worldwide, but the company has already confirmed its plans for the distribution of EMUI 11. According to a post on its consumer forums, Huawei will issue EMUI 11 in the following nine regions:

  • Africa
  • Asia Pacific
  • India
  • Japan
  • Latin America
  • Middle East
  • Russia
  • North-Eastern Europe
  • Western Europe

Most regions will begin receiving EMUI 11 from next month in some capacity, although it will be January 2021 before any device in Latin America or Japan sees Huawei's latest OS update. Similarly, Indian owners of a Mate 20 Pro or P30 Pro must wait until sometime in Q1 2021 for EMUI 11.

Only the Mate 30 and P40 series will begin receiving EMUI 11 before the start of 2021, but there are some important caveats. Huawei has ignored the Mate 30 Lite again, leaving it stranded on EMUI 9.1. Additionally, the P40 Lite, P40 Lite 5G and P40 Lite E have all been abandoned, leaving them on various versions of EMUI. Huawei only released the trio this year, so this is abysmal software support. The company continues to sell these devices, though.

Similarly, it is unclear whether the P30 Pro New Edition will receive EMUI 11. All P smart series handsets have been dropped too, as has the Y series. The 19 devices that will be upgraded to EMUI 11 can be found below. We have also included each upgrade plan that Huawei published on its community forums.
