Huawei P30/P30 Pro EMUI 10 (Android 10) update changelog goes live before first public beta

During IFA 2019, Huawei surprised everyone by introducing the Pixel-esque two tone design on a revamped edition of P30 Pro. The matte-and-mirrored glass variant of the phone comes with Android 10 out of the box, while the generic P30 Pro is still running Android Pie based EMUI 10 in the stable channel.


Well, both the regular edition of Huawei P30 and the Pro variant are entitled to get the Android 10 based EMUI 10 update in the coming months. Owners of the phone duo in China can now enroll themselves in the public beta testing to get the first taste of EMUI 10.

According to Huawei, the registration window should be open till September 11. They also initiated the pilot testing via global FUT program. Non-Chinese users need to download a small app and apply for the testing. However, they have yet to push the Android 10 based software update to the testers.

A number of third party apps (including banking ones) are incompatible with the EMUI 10 builds at this moment, so think twice before installing the beta on your primary phone. Users should also revert back to the stock theme as third party theme support is still shaky.
