On October 9, 2019, Honor announced on Weibo the arrival of the EMUI 10 beta on four smartphones by the end of the month. As always, the beta program will initially be reserved for resident users in China before reaching other countries.
Not surprisingly, the beta opens first to the latest high-end devices of the subsidiary. The Honor 20, the Honor 20 Pro, the Honor View 20 and the Honor Magic 2. So far, Honor has managed to stick to the promises of its deployment schedule released in September. As a reminder, the final version for these 4 devices should be deployed in December.
