- Huawei is reportedly rolling out the Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0 update to the Mate 10 Pro.
- The new Huawei update is apparently restricted to European users for now.
- Prominent EMUI additions include a fingerprint-enabled password manager and GPU Turbo 2.0.
Huawei isn’t the fastest when it comes to system updates, but it looks like the company is stepping up with Android Pie. According to GetDroidTips, the Chinese colossus has pushed out a Pie-based update to the Mate 10 Pro.
The update is bundled with the EMUI 9.0 Android skin and has the build number 18.104.22.168, the website claims. The OTA is reportedly being pushed out to Mate 10 Pro users in Europe, but will “soon” spread to other markets.
EMUI 9.0 packs plenty of features, such as the Google Lens-inspired HiVision feature, GPU Turbo 2.0 for better performance in selected games, and a biometric-enabled password manager (seen below). The Chinese brand is also touting faster app launch speeds and smoother system performance with the new skin.
Android Pie should also bring a few new features to the Mate 10 Pro, such as digital wellbeing, wind down functionality, Google’s take on gesture navigation, and adaptive brightness. It’s unclear whether Huawei will adopt Pie’s adaptive battery feature, as EMUI already has its own power-saving features.
News of a European roll-out means other regions can’t be far behind, so sit tight if you’ve got a Mate 10 Pro in the U.S. or elsewhere. Hopefully the P20 series and budget Huawei phones aren’t far behind in receiving a Pie-based update, either.
We’ve contacted Huawei for confirmation of the OTA and will update the article when/if we get a response. Have you received the update though? Then let us know in the comments!
