Huawei commences EMUI 11 rollout for 10 devices as HarmonyOS beta for smartphones set to debut in December
Huawei has begun issuing EMUI 11 to several devices. The Chinese company announced plans to update 37 devices to its latest OS last month, but it has not followed the order that it set for itself. According to Huawei Central, Huawei has commenced the EMUI 11 update process in China for the Mate 30, P40 and MatePad Pro series, which include the likes of the Mate 30 Pro, P40 Pro and the standard MatePad Pro.
The OS update is being offered for devices on EMUI 10.1 and on EMUI 11 beta, although it remains based on Android 10 for the time being. As per Huawei Central, the following devices are now eligible to receive EMUI 11 in China:
- Huawei Mate 30 4G
- Huawei Mate 30 Pro 4G
- Huawei Mate 30 5G
- Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G
- Huawei Mate 30 RS Porsche Design
- Huawei P40
- Huawei P40 Pro
- Huawei P40 Pro+
- Huawei MatePad Pro
- Huawei MatePad Pro 5G
EMUI 126.96.36.199 has already reached some Mate 30 Pro 5G handsets globally, too. As the screenshots below show, EMUI 11 contains an extensive changelog, including for new features like enhanced multi-window support. EMUI 11 is not the only smartphone OS that Huawei has on the boil, though. According to an official post on Weibo, Huawei will release the first HarmonyOS beta on December 18, with a stable release to follow by early Q1 2021. It remains unclear which smartphones will receive HarmonyOS 2.0, though.
