Breaking: Huawei P30 and P30 Pro begin receiving EMUI 11 [Global]



Huawei P30 Pro

Huawei P30 is one of the most versatile smartphones that Huawei has ever released, it comes with Leica quad-camera system with a revolutionary image processing system and far-reaching periscope zoom camera. Talking about the hardware, the P30 and P30 Pro has an excellent display, Kirin 980 processor, and a better software system.

The device was initially launched with EMUI 9.1 based on Android 9, later it was upgraded to EMUI 10.0 and then 10.1. The device is capable of running high-performance tasks and the company began testing EMUI 11 for this device in November last year.

After concluding the EMUI 11 beta testing for Huawei P30 devices in China, Huawei then moved on to the beta program for the devices in the global market. However, it remained limited to some users.

But the company later announced the EMUI 11 upgrade plan, which promised the rollout of EMUI 11 for the P30 and P30 Pro in the first quarter of 2021. Since we’re now running fast in Q1 2021, Huawei has finally begun the rollout of EMUI 11 for the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro, which the users have been eagerly waiting for.

As we can expect, the EMUI 11 rollout for the Huawei P30 flagship is in the early-stage and may take some time to cover all of the devices in the global market.
