Confirmed: Honor Play not getting EMUI 10/Android 10 [Updated: May get]



[Update: Honor Play ma get the EMUI 10 software update, it is not final yet. Read here more.]

There’s sad news coming for Honor Play users, who are eagerly waiting for the EMUI 10/Andorid 10 update because the company has now confirmed that this smartphone will not receive the latest EMUI update.

“We regret to inform you that EMUI 10.0 / Android Q will not be available for your device due to hardware limitations as it requires higher hardware specifications for optimal performance. We appreciate your understanding and patience” said the company.

For us, this reason doesn’t make sense because the Honor Play comes with heavy specs including a good hardware support.

Honor Play is powered by the Kirin 970 – the same processor as the Honor 10 and Huawei P20 series. It has 4/6GB of RAM, a 64GB of storage, support expandable storage by MicroSD (up to 256GB), and a 3,750 mAh battery. It has the 6.3-inch, 19.5:9 display with really impressive viewing angles.

To be noted that, Honor Play has almost the same specs as Huawei P20, which is already confirmed by Huawei for EMUI 10 or Android Q update.

Another remarkable thing is that Honor Play was launched after Huawei P20 Pro. Both of the smartphones featured Android 8.1 or EMUI 8.2 at the time of launch. At present, Honor Play upgraded to EMUI 9.1 based on Android 9 Pie.

Something similar was found in the case of Honor 10 that was introduced by the company on May 2018 with Android 8.1 and is identical as Honor Play.

The previous time we contacted the company, they replied that the phone is under evaluation process to check the eligibility for this update but now they’ve put the Honor Play out of the league.

We’ll continue to track this story to keep you informed.
