Following the release of Huawei OS (HarmonyOS) to battle the smartphone world with Android OS, the China-based company has released another major update EMUI 10 for Huawei P30, P30 Pro, and Huawei Mate 20 Pro for some selected Huawei phone running the EMUI 9. We are still hoping that the Huawei EMUI 10 will be available for EMUI 8 devices such as Huawei Y9 (upgraded to Huawei EMUI 9), Huawei Y9 Prime and some other Huawei phones to enjoy the new Huawei EMUI 10 that is made available for Huawei P30, Huawei P30 Pro, and Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Pending the time the new Huawei OS [HarmonyOS] will be made available for all Huawei phones, the Huawei EMUI 10 will possibly be extended to other 2018 and 2018 Huawei phones. However, while other Huawei phones will possibly get the EMUI 10 OTA with time without downloading the EMUI 10 OS package from developer sites, we’ll take a look at how to upgrade Huawei P30 to EMUI 10, Huawei P30 Pro, and Huawei Mate 20 Pro to EMUI 10 from EMUI 9.
