From now on all the Huawei Mate 20 smartphones can be updated to EMUI 9.1, which is a Pie-based update. The list of eligible devices includes the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X, and Mate 20 RS Porsche Design. Unfortunately, Mate 20 Lite users are out of this party. Interesting enough, the rollout for the Mate 20 X started a few days ago. We believe that the device served as the last test for the final release.
EMUI 9.1 is based on Android 9 Pie but offers improved experience including a new file system, EROFS, and GPU Turbo 3.0 (supporting 25 games). It also introduces Moon Photography mode, originally from P30 phones, making you ready for this “capturing moon photos” trend. Mate 20 devices have been in beta since April this year.
If you own any of the eligible devices, check a quick video tutorial for installing the update:
This basically concludes Huawei’s update schedule for June. Now we expect to see many more devices receiving EMUI 9.1 in July. When it comes to the Huawei Mate 20 owners, they can now rest and wait for the Android Q-based EMUI update. The company already confirmed that the entire Mate 20 series will receive Android’s upcoming version.
