Huawei Mate 20 Pro demoted to quarterly EMUI update section
We’re in September and Huawei is rolling out monthly software updates for its devices. Therefore, the company recently released September 2021 EMUI security update details as well as devices that are eligible to get the corresponding firmware.
To be mentioned, there are some noticeable changes that have been made to this list of Monthly and Quarterly EMUI security devices list. This includes the mention of Huawei Mate 20 Pro EMUI update status under the quarterly section.
This means, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro EMUI update will rollout once every three months, which is not a bad routine to follow. However, in the past, we’ve witnessed that Huawei doesn’t bound to its update schedule and sends updates anytime.
Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro (EMUI 11) also received a new rollout recently that installs June 2021 security patch for better system security. That’s not it because the phone previously received May 2021 patch.
Furthermore, the company has already seeded new apps such as Petal Search, Petal Map, Reader, and Member Center and added a new Game Center app. This update also brought of March 2021 security patch.
However, in January, Huawei has removed all of the Huawei Mate 20 series models from the listing for regular (monthly) updates. There are many people that attempted that this device lineup will no longer receive software updates but later the confusion was cleared by the company.
HarmonyOS in China:
As of September 3, 2021, all models of the Huawei Mate 20 series have completed HarmonyOS 2.0 operating system installation in China. The eligible Mate 20 lineup models are:
- Huawei Mate 20
- Huawei Mate 20 Pro
- Huawei Mate 20 X
- Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design
- Huawei Mate 20 X 5G
This latest operating system brings a new user interface design and provides a better user experience over the EMUI software powered by the latest distributed software capabilities.
Still, the global Huawei smartphone users definitely want to test HarmonyOS 2.0 on their devices but the company has not made any official announcement on this matter.
Meanwhile, the Chinese tech maker has pulled another move under the EMUI campaign named EMUI 12. This new EMUI version comes with a HarmonyOS 2.0 UI design scheme and has a more user experience than the EMUI 11.
Although Huawei has officially listed its latest EMUI version on the official website but not made any announcement regarding this new EMUI version or its rollout date for the global market.
Furthermore, you check the EMUI 12 features in the article linked below.

Huawei is yet to share EMUI 13 roadmap
EMUI 13 beta kicked off for global users and it’s quite exciting but the roadmap of eligible Huawei devices is still awaited. While there’s no official news available on this matter.
In 2021, Huawei released EMUI 12 roadmap during the Asia pacific launch event but this year, there are no such plans revealed. Instead of the roadmap, Huawei opened the EMUI 13 beta for all Huawei P50, P50 Pro, P50 Pocket, and Mate Xs 2 foldable phones.
Unfortunately, the program is open for the Asia region but more users want to join the beta activity. Especially the European models are waiting for term to dive into the testing pool.
Despite the delay, we hope that the oldest set of devices may also get a slot into this EMUI 13 release program.
In the meantime, if you have a flagship phone, tune into the Beta app. From here open the “Me” section and then search for a new EMUI 13 beta project.
You need to sign up for the beta application and wait for the submission. Once submitted, you will be notified to download the OTA update package.
If the activity is not available on your phone, don’t worry, you will see the project after the beta opens in your country. Yet, we also suggest you keep an eye on the Beta application.
EMUI 13 Features:
EMUI 13 focuses on reinventing EMUI 12, this includes better security and privacy. This new software can review all of the data safety measures thanks to the new privacy center.
It has new options to allow or revoke permission, check the timeline for all of the user permission, and so on. You can also set new image privacy to hide the image meta information.
EMUI 13 also plays well around the user interface and there are many improvements made to features such as large folders and service widgets.
