Huawei, Is there any chance of EMUI 13.1?



Huawei EMUI 13.1

2023 is on and we’re still waiting for EMUI 13 on past phones, as Huawei Mate 50 Pro is the only device with this software access in the global market. However, there’s still a chance that we can start an early discussion on Huawei EMUI 13.1.

I get it, the company has not released the new EMUI 13 for old devices. Yet, we’re here to talk about software that is not even announced. On that, we’ve to explain a few things before we jump to a conclusion.

Dual flagship:

The past report reveals that Huawei will launch dual flagships this year. It will be the first time when Huawei will launch the P series and Mate series (traditional) smartphones in the same year.

While it was 2020 when the company unveiled Huawei P40 and Mate 40 series. After that, the company only brought – the P50 series in 2021 and Mate 50 series in 2022.

Two software:

Before 2021, Huawei followed two different flagship strategies, and these two phones were packed with two versions of EMUI.

For example, the Huawei P40 provides EMUI 10.1 and Huawei Mate 40 delivers EMUI 11. Interestingly, the tradition previously followed by P30 and Mate 30 with EMUI 9.1 and EMUI 10 respectively.

But in the past two years, this break in dual flaghip, allowed Huawei to only use one major software for all of its devices.


Huawei P50 was launched in 2021 with the new EMUI 12 pre-installed. While Mate 50 series with EMUI 13 in the following year.

What’s next?

In China, Huawei is preparing HarmonyOS 3.1 to mark its entrance in the first quarter of 2023. To be mentioned, it could be featured with the Huawei P60 series, which will also debut around Q1. Meanwhile, HarmonyOS 3 was installed on Mate 50 series.

Keeping the fact that the Huawei P60 series may also meet the global market, we can’t deny the possibility. That Huawei may introduce this new flaghip to global consumers with a collection of features in EMUI 13.1.

For now, Huawei has not made any official announcement on this matter but we could take it as an early opening for this discussion. Before that, we want to check the roadmap for the EMUI 13 rollout and we’re eagerly waiting for the release.
