Huawei P20 Lite receiving system security improvements with January 2021 software update



Huawei P20 Lite was officially debuted in March 2018 with EMUI 8.0 based on the Android 8.0 version. This smartphone features a 5.84-inch display with 1080x2280p resolution, powered by Kirin 659 processor, 16MP dual main and selfie camera, and more.

After the launch, Huawei released two major software upgrades for P20 Lite users, EMUI 9.0 and 9.1 that brought a new user interface and improved features. Meanwhile, this device is not eligible to get EMUI 10 and above updates.
