EMUI 11 for Huawei Nova 5T users in New Zealand, followed by March 2021 security update



Huawei is rapidly upgrading its previously launched devices over EMUI 11, the latest Android-based mobile operating system, across the globe as soon as possible. In the meantime, the company is also preparing to release HarmonyOS for general smartphone consumers.

Coming to Huawei Nova 5T smartphone, this device also gets the chance to participate in the EMUI 11 beta testing program. After completing the beta activity, Nova 5T beta tester, as well as EMUI 10.1 users, began to receive this major upgrade.

Since February, the stable EMUI 11 version is rolling out for Nova 5T devices. As one of Huawei’s most popular smartphones, Huawei has sold a huge number of units of the Nova 5T and because of its vastness, it may take some time to reach EMUI 11 in different markets places.

So far, EMUI 11 for Huawei Nova 5T touched the UK, Europe, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Philippines, and Latin America. And users from these countries started enjoying the latest EMUI 11 features.

Now, the EMUI 11 major upgrading is expanding for Nova 5T smartphone users in New Zealand and comes with new user interface changes including smoother animations, better multitasking, improved multi-screen collaboration, and other features.

Aside from this, the company has also released the March 2021 security patch for this device user that enhances security by fixing different levels of exploits and issues.

We advised users to first install this EMUI 11 major update on their respective Nova 5T device and further March 2021 security improvements for device safety.
