Huawei P50 Pro February 2023 update expanding, while EMUI 13 beta begins
Last month, Huawei began to rollout the February 2023 security update for the global version of Huawei P50 Pro and it is now expanding for some users in Europe.
As reported by Huaweiblog, Huawei is expanding February 2023 software update for the P50 Pro with EMUI 220.127.116.112 build version. However, users will have to download a software package of around 300 megabytes in size.
For starters, Huawei releases these updates in batches, therefore, it took some time to reach some users around different regions.
In the meantime, we suggest users download the update as soon as it appears in the notifications panel. You can also check it manually via Settings. To do so, you need to navigate toward the software updates section and follow the on-screen instructions to get the new firmware.
Last week, Huawei announced EMUI 13 beta recruitment for the global users of Huawei P50 Pro along with other major smartphones. However, the program remains limited to the Asia pacific models.
Still, the activity is in the initial stage and may take some time open in other important markets such as Europe.
EMUI 13 is the newest addition to the EMUI universe and every Huawei smartphone owner is waiting to download this major upgrade. EMUI 13 brings various features such as the new smart folder, which allows you to manage the home screen apps.
Also, the latest swipe-up gestures help you to perform more with the slightest gestures over an app icon.
So, every Huawei P50 Pro user is excited about this upcoming upgrade. But then the time of the estimated arrival is yet to be decided by the company.
Meanwhile, Huawei is preparing to launch the Huawei P60 Series on March 23, and the Chinese tech maker will feed that with a lot of new technologies. These could make the phone a perfect successor to the Huawei P50 Pro, which is already a number one go-to companion for taking high-quality photographs for consumers.
A Chinese Huawei P30 Lite user received EMUI 12
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.
Huawei EMUI 12 comes with a brand new user interface for the P30 Lite owners. This includes a new control panel, better notifications, improved animations, and much more.
