When will Huawei phones be updated to Android 10?

The Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro launched with an open-source version of Android that does not feature any of Google’s apps as standard, and without even access to the Play Store due to the recent Android ban.

The Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro devices already received the Android 10 update earlier in September, while it was reported that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro started to receive the update on October 12.

Sourced from Chinese social media Weibo in late September, the following timetable shows all of the updates set to take place up until December of this year, with all the remaining devices presumably having to wait until 2020 for the new software:

  • Huawei P30 series: Mid-October
  • Huawei Mate 20 series: Late October
  • Huawei P20 series: Late October
  • Huawei P Smart 2019 series: Mid-November
  • Huawei Mate 10 Series: Late November

What will Android 10 bring to Huawei phones?

In the promotional video embedded below, Huawei is most keen to show off new features of the interface, including redesigned icons, smoother functionality, and the new Dark Mode feature. Dark Mode will introduce an optional black-and-grey theme to your device’s display, which may save some battery life and is also less harsh on your eyes than bright white light — especially when you’re in the dark. You can find out more about the OS’s new features, such as Focus Mode, Live Caption, and Gesture navigation, in the article below.
