A Huawei P30 lite Chinese smartphone owner received the latest EMUI 12 software update in China and the user posted it online, which is surprising to some users, while to us it’s completely normal.
Back in July, Huawei P30 Lite users in the global market received the major EMUI 12 software. The phone has long been running EMUI 10.0, and it’s a direct jump towards EMUI 12.
Throughout 2022, Huawei P30 Lite received this upgrade in many countries. However, the latest case is different.
Actually, the model shown in the screenshot is not Chinese and the Huawei P30 Lite device’s EMUI 12 build version is Asia pacific. Therefore, it has received a delayed OTA upgrade, if the user is operating the phone inside the country.
For your information, the Chinese users already have a P30 Lite dubbed version of Nova 4e, which was launched first in China. However, this phone later installed the HarmonyOS operating system, while the global version only runs EMUI.
So, it’s a big upgrade for the Huawei P30 lite and most of them already grabbed it firsthand. As for those looking for confirmation over EMUI 13, may need to wait for the time being, as a roadmap is yet to come.
If you want to upgrade your phone to the latest version, open the system settings, then tap on System & updates, and from here touch on the software updates. Afterward, follow the on-screen instructions to get the new firmware.
Don’t forget there are certain precautions that you need to follow to download this new software on your smartphone.
