Huawei: the update to the EMUI 11 continues, where are we?

Although the sales situation in the West is not the most optimistic – and according to forecasts, 2021 will continue in this direction – Huawei continues to push forward its process of changing the name of Harmony OS. The new OS is ready and it is already possible to see it at work in devices located in China, while for Europe the question is a little different.

What is certain is that ties with the past cannot be cut and all customers must be supported, also because they have placed their trust in the Chinese brand by purchasing its smartphones (even when the waters were already rough).


In 2020, in September, Huawei had released official details on the EMUI 11 and how this would eventually arrive on smartphones under the support period of software update. Before the software could be considered stable, EMUI 11 also went through a beta testing period. Through the official words of the company we have a list to be disclosed, many have already been updated while others will be updated in the coming months. But where are we? This is the list of those already updated, we obviously refer to the European models:

  • Huawei Mate 30
  • Huawei Mate 30 Pro
  • Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G
  • Huawei P40
  • Huawei P40 Pro
  • Huawei P40 Pro +
  • Huawei MatePad Pro
  • Huawei MatePad Pro 5G
  • Huawei Mate Xs
  • Huawei MediaPad M6

All EMUI 11 updates are based on Android 10. In theory, the Chinese brand should update its software to the latest version of the green robot operating system but is probably concentrating its forces to transport as many smartphones as possible to Harmony OS.

In light of the above, has Huawei done enough to update its devices? It must be said that, as mentioned at the beginning of the article, it is a transition period pending an important transition to Harmony OS. Many other smartphones will need to be updated and we will bring them back to them as well. In fact, however, the future holds nothing good, with the latest moves that Biden wants to undertake about it.
