EMUI 10 now running on over 1 million Huawei and Honor smartphones

Huawei has been setting a couple of notable milestones lately.

First, it registered over 200 million smartphone shipments in record time.

Now, the Chinese company says that its latest software release, EMUI 10, has already been installed in over 1 million devices from both its own expansive smartphone lineup as well as that of sub-brand Honor.

EMUI 10, the latest version of Huawei’s custom software overlay, is based on the latest version of Android, Android 10.

Huawei started seeding EMUI 10 in early September with its flagship P30 and P30 Pro smartphones being the first in line to get the beta version.

Since then, availability of EMUI 10, which remains under testing, has been expanded to several other smartphones, high-end and budget.

This week, for instance, the company has rolled out EMUI 10 to budget devices like the Huawei P30 Lite and the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019. The latter got upgraded to EMUI 9.1, the immediate predecessor to EMUI 10, just 3 months ago. Huawei has been selling both devices locally for months now.

While much of the testing remains exclusive to Huawei and Honor device users in China, a number of devices in the global market are also eligible for Huawei’s Android 10 beta programme.

EMUI 10 brings with it most of the new features that Google has brought to Android with Android 10 while also adding lots of other features that are exclusive to Huawei devices like a new file system, changes to the overall user interface, better optimization for mobile gaming as well readying Huawei mobile devices for an expanded role in Huawei’s device ecosystem.
