Huawei has begun distributing the first beta version of EMUI 11 for smartphones of the flagship Huawei Mate 20 series released in 2018.
So far, testing has begun in China. Users of Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X, Mate 20 RS and Mate 20 X 5G were able to take part in it. EMUI 11 beta 188.8.131.52 firmware brings a lot of new features that are standard for EMUI 11.
In total, the company plans to update 37 models of Huawei and Honor smartphones and tablets to EMUI 11 / Magic UI 4.0 by the end of the year.
In China, the stable EMUI 11 is already available for the Huawei P40 and Mate 30, nova 6, nova 7 5G, Honor 30, Honor V30 and Huawei MediaPad 10.8 devices.
EMUI 11 is released for 9 Huawei and Honor smartphones
Huawei continues to roll out EMUI 11 updates even as many of the company’s smartphone models are moving to HarmonyOS in the next couple of months. This time, the final version of EMUI 11 (aka MagicUI 4.0 for devices under the Honor brand) went to nine smartphones and one tablet of the company.
The final version of EMUI 11 was released for 9 smartphones. Among them are nova 6, nova 7 5G, Honor 30 and Honor 30 Pro. A complete list of updated devices is as follows:
- Huawei nova 7 5G;
- Huawei nova 7 Pro 5G;
- Huawei-nova 6;
- Huawei nova 6 5G;
- Huawei MediaPad 10.8;
- Honor 30;
- Honor 30 Pro;
- Honor-30 Pro +;
- Honor V30;
- Honor V30 Pro.
For now, the final version of EMUI 11 / MagicUI 4.0 for these devices is available in China, but will soon be released in other countries. An important point – it is installed only on top of EMUI 10.1.
EMUI 11 release schedule published for 37 Huawei and Honor models
Recently, in an interview, one of Huawei officials Huawei has announced that the company is preparing for the fact that the EMUI 11 user interface may become the last in the series of the manufacturer’s firmware, before switching to their own operating system. So, it’s interesting to see which Huawei devices will upgrade to EMUI 11.
The company has published a list of those models that will soon receive the new version of their user interface. It includes 37 devices from Huawei and Honor. Already in November, owners of flagship series Huawei P40, Honor 20, Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 20 will be able to upgrade to EMUI 11, and for Huawei Nova 7, Nova 7 Pro 5G, Nova 6, Nova 6 5G, Huawei P30 / P30 Pro, Honor V30 / V30 Pro, Honor 30/30 Pro / 30 Pro + and Huawei MatePad 10.8, they will have a beta version of the new firmware.
You can see the full list of models that will receive the update on the official timeline of the company. And note that we are talking about the Chinese version of EMUI 11.
With a high degree of probability; all of these devices are the first devices to get the proprietary HongMeng OS (Harmony OS) operating system. Recall that Huawei plans to transfer its devices to proprietary operating systems. In fact, EMUI11 is a transitional version of the firmware. It will mark the transition of the company’s gadgets to their own OS.
At the moment, HongMengOS 2.0 beta is already ready for various devices, including TVs and smartwatches. We expect that this particular firmware version should arrive on mobile devices. We are waiting for official comments from the company on this matter.
