On the other hand, Huawei has denied sending EMUI 10 updates for these smartphones for the following reason, which is almost the same reason for every device that is not getting the EMUI 10.
“We regret to inform you that EMUI 10.0 / Android 10 will not be available for these devices due to hardware limitations, as it requires higher hardware specifications for optimal performance“ Huawei.
If we look at their specs, both Huawei Nova 3 and Honor Play are equipped with previous flagship processor Kirin 970, it is also inherited by Mate 10 and P20 series smartphones eligible for the update.
Moreover, Huawei Nova 3i also comes with some good specs that are very comparable to the Honor 8X that is receiving the EMUI 10 first hand.
Currently, there’s no official reply available on the confirmation of EMUI 10 for these devices but we’ll let you know as any new information appears.
