So, Huawei has not yet started EMUI 13 beta
We all are looking forward to EMUI 13 but Huawei has not started testing the software under the Beta program. Meanwhile, we’ve already entered November and it’s time that Huawei blesses us with new software.
It was November 9, when Huawei began EMUI 12 beta run for global smartphone users. The company first appointed Mate 40, P40, and Mate 30 Pro devices for the test. Later on, the program expanded to more models such as P30 and Mate 20.
Surprisingly, we’ve already passed 1 year since that happened and EMUI 13 has now been listed. Yet, there’s no showcase of progress for the test or roadmap at the moment.
Aside from these, the Chinese tech maker is launching Huawei Mate 50 Pro in different countries that come with pre-packed EMUI 13 software. On the flip side, if Huawei starts a new beta activity, then Huawei P50 and Mate 40 Pro will be the first beneficiary to get the EMUI 13. Followed by P40 and Mate 30 devices.
If you have any of these devices, then we suggest you download and install the Beta app. Then start searching for Beta firmware, the process is simple and easy to understand.
To be mentioned, Huawei has not said any official remark on upgrading past devices with this new EMUI. Although, it’s inevitable but users should know what is coming their way.
Because Huawei has already wrapped up Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) 2022 and there was no promotion for EMUI 13. Instead, the company chose to remain focused on the HarmonyOS operating system and unveiled related technologies.
This EMUI version comes with new smart folders and a new version of large folders with various layouts. On the other hand, there is new smart widget management to stack or group widgets on the home screen.
Furthermore, Huawei has improved the performance of smartphones as compared to EMUI 12. There’s a lot to explore in this software, check them below.
EMUI 13 Features: Super Device, App Gestures, Widgets, SuperStorage and more

Speaking of which, the company is currently testing EMUI 13 on top flagships – P50 series, P50 Pocket, and Mate Xs 2 smartphones. However, the availability is limited to a few markets/regions. We hope that Huawei Nova 9 will soon get a slot to test the new EMUI version.

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.
