After concluding the EMUI 11 program for the Huawei P40 series and Mate 30 in Europe, Huawei is moving to deliver this major software on more smartphones such as Huawei P30, Mate 20, and more.

Aside from EMUI 11, Huawei is also sending new software for the Huawei P40 devices users that have already received the EMUI 11. According to the information, the latest firmware for the P40 series in Europe brings December 2020 security patch, which improves system security.

Furthermore, the update also adds a new fast file transfer feature to transfer large files with high speed. The changelog doesn’t mention this feature but the source (mentioned below) confirms that it’s a part of this update.
