Huawei has opened up the closed beta stage for 14 Kirin 980-based smartphones and tablets to the Chinese public, allowing users to get to grips with the EMUI 11 (Huawei) or Magic UI 4.0 (Honor) Android operating system overlays. The software update is based on Android 10 and is currently available to users who sign up to the Huawei Club. EMUI 11 and Magic UI 4.0 have been internally tested for a while now and public availability has only just been announced.

The 14 smartphones and tablets that are now included in the latest EMUI 11/Magic UI 4.0 testing are as follows:

All of these devices feature Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC which was released in 2017 and is an octa-core processor based on a 7 nm manufacturing process. At the time, the Kirin 980 was classed as a premium high-end chip, and it is capable of clocking at up to 2.6 GHz.

While the current testing phase is restricted to users in China, it shouldn’t be too long before Huawei extends the test to variants of the qualifying devices from other regions, such as Europe, India, and Latin America. An already revealed EMUI 11 roadmap stated that the first quarter of 2021 was the target timeframe, so it seems Huawei is keeping up with its upgrade plans.
