Huawei India clarifies specific reasons for not providing EMUI 10 for specific devices.
“We would like to inform you that the updates for the device have been stopped due to hardware specifications as the motherboard cannot take more updates hence it is a risk for rolling the updates which may harm your device. We appreciate your understanding and patience.”
We’ll wait for more official confirmation on this matter as the rollout for EMUI 10 goes wide for older devices.

Recently we’ve gathered some of the replies regarding the EMUI 10 eligibility for some of the Huawei and Honor smartphones mentioned below.
- Honor Play
- Honor 9
- Honor 9 Lite
- Honor 8X Max
- Huawei Y9 2019
- Huawei Nova 3
- Huawei Nova 3i
- Huawei P20 Lite
Honor Play comes at the top of this list because it’s equipped with high-end specs including flagship processor Kirin 970 but didn’t make it to the EMUI 10. Check below what Honor has to say about it.
“We understand your interest in EMUI upgrade. Please be informed that we have roll-out our EMUI upgrade plan for all the devices. For Honor Play we will continue to provide regular security updates and necessary update enhancing devices to perform at optimum level. For more details kindly stay tuned to our official pages.
