While Huawei might not be thriving in western markets at the moment, it continues to hold a good share of the smartphone market in China. Previously, we reported that the company is prepping the release of HarmonyOS 2.0.
This is the company’s in-house platform which will soon be available on a slew of smart devices. But Huawei seems to be sticking with Android for its smartphones for now. Speaking of which, the rollout of EMUI 10.1 based on Android 10 is underway.
Earlier, we reported of the release of the new software version for 13 new devices. Furthremore, two new smartphones from the company are now receiving the update.
The devices in the spotlight are the Huawei Mate Xs 5G and the Mate X. Both foldable smartphones are now receiving the stable EMUI 10.1 update in China. Huawei’s first folding phone, that is the Mate X released with Android 9 Pie on board along with EMUI 9.1. On the other hand, the newer Mate Xs 5G released with EMUI 10 on top of Android 10.
This new update comes in with a download size of over 4GB. And it bumps the EMUI version from 10 to 10.1. Users on Weibo confirmed the arrival of the new software version for the Mate X and the Mate Xs 5G in China.
EMUI 10.1 does not bring any major changes to the OS. However, it does offer a few improvements and features that help improve the user experience. This includes the set of new themes and Huawei Share which is similar to AirDrop.
Now that most of the eligible devices are receiving or have received the Android 10 update, the company can now shift its focus on Android 11. A few days ago, we reported that the company might be planning to release Android 11 this quarter (Q3).
