Here we have shared a simple guide to manually download and install EMUI 9.1 firmware on Huawei P20 Lite. Earlier this year, Huawei promised to roll out the EMUI 9.1 update to at least 49 Huawei and Honor devices. As per promise, the company already started rolling out the update and the Huawei P20 Lite is the latest one to get it. The EMUI 9.1 update is released for ANE-LX1 and ANE-LX2 variants of P20 Lite.
The EMUI 9.1 update for Huawei P20 Lite is still based on Android 9 Pie. New EROFS file system, GPU Turbo 3.0, the AR Measure app, Dual-View Video along with improved performance, new wallpapers and icons are the highlights of the EMUI 9.1 OS. The latest software update for P20 Lite also brings the July 2019 Security Patch.
