Honor 9X and 9X Pro started their EMUI 10.1 journey on March 6, 2020, with internal beta recruitment in China and now the company has decided to conclude this beta activity by pushing a stable OTA.

Honor has released the stable EMUI 10.1 update for Honor 9X and 9X Pro devices. The update will allow both beta and non-beta testers to install this latest version of EMUI.

Honor 9X Pro is recently released in the global markets with EMUI 9.1. On the other hand, its global younger brother – Honor 9X has already received EMUI 10.0. Meanwhile, users of both devices are still waiting for EMUI 10.1.

However, this rollout confirms that EMUI 10.1 for Honor 9X will start soon. While the company may also directly upgrade the Honor 9X pro to the latest EMUI version instead of EMUI 10.0.
