Huawei EMUI August 2021 Updates List



Huawei is currently rolling out the new HarmonyOS 2.0 software for its eligible devices and continuously expanding the new software versions in China.

However, the global users are still running EMUI and waiting for the HM OS 2 as well as its new features to arrive. Meanwhile, the company has not yet revealed any plan for users outside China.
