Alongside the Honor 20 series, Huawei also started recruiting Huawei Mate 20 series smartphones for Android 10-based EMUI 10 beta update. The beta program is currently live in China while it will slowly expand to other global countries in the coming days. Huawei Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro, and Mate 30 RS Porsche Design are the eligible smartphones for the EMUI 10 beta program. Here we have a detailed tutorial on how to download and install the EMUI 10 (Android 10) beta update on Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro.
Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro was announced back in October last year running on Android 9.0 Pie-based EMUI 9.0 OS. Later in July this year, the Chinese telecom giant released EMUI 9.1 update for these devices. The update brought improved performance, new wallpapers, GPU Turbo 3.0, new EROFS file system, AR Measure, and more.
Although the EMUI 10 beta update is happening now, the stable EMUI 10 update for Mate 30 series will happen only in December 2019. The new EMUI 10 comes with a bunch of new features. The interface seems to be more refined with changes in design elements as well as a new font. There is also a dark mode which should work best with OLED display equipped phones. Other top features include Magazine Design, Morandi Color, Dark Mode, Animations, App icons, Multi-screen support, Always-on Display and more.
