Huawei Mate 20 (Pro) December security update up for grabs on both EMUI 9.1 & 10

Owners of Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are in for a treat, as the Chinese OEM has recently pushed in the latest EMUI 10 update based on Android 10 for the users.

Keep in mind that Huawei began the rollout of the EMUI 10 updates with the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro units in Europe back in September. And eventually, it was later on pushed in for other devices as well.

Besides, users who are running the EMUI 10 on their Mate 20 and 20 Pro are getting this new update with version number V10.0.0.180. The update weighs in a massive 4.45 GB in size. So, we would recommend downloading the update on a stable WiFi network.

To recall, previously we have reported that the EMUI 10 (Android 10) update arrived for the Mate 20 series users in Europe back in November. 

This new update also brings in the December 2019 security patchset for the Huawei Mate 20 and 20 Pro devices as well. Moreover, it also tags in all the new features and goodies of EMUI 10 and Android 10 for the devices.

For instance, new user interface, dynamic animations, GPU turbo, phone clone, enhanced security for the device, and some more features for media and entertainment.
