Huawei unveiled the EMUI 11 in September and during the launch event, the company also announced the beta testing for a number of flagships including P40, Mate 30, and MatePad Pro models.

Following these devices, the Chinese tech giant began the test flight for the Huawei Mate 20 smartphones and later expanded this testing program to more markets in Europe and in the Middle East.
