[Stable release timeline] Honor View 10 grabs Android 10 update as EMUI 10 beta, users on EMUI 9.1 facing issues with OTA
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on December 27, 2019) follows:
At the beginning of this week, Honor View 10 started getting the December 2019 security patchset on EMUI 9.1. Rewind back to a few more weeks, and you could spot that the EMUI 10 beta program also went live for global users.
In a recent turn of events, users who have signed up for the EMUI 10 beta program are reporting that they are having issues with the December security update.
Some of the users have reported bricking of their devices while the beta signup is gone under available projects for others after trying to upgrade their Honor View 10 with this update. Apparently the incremental update from the build with Novemebr patch (22.214.171.1243) is botched up.
There is one post from a user that has clearly mentioned that users who have registered for the beta FUT and are receiving the December update should not download the patch to avoid the issue.
What’s more interesting is that there are more EMUI 10 beta slots (3 to be specific), available in the beta app for Honor View 10 users. Besides, those who are still on build 126.96.36.1993 (aka November patch) can apply for the beta slots.
However, not everything has gone south for the owners of Honor View 10 because Huawei has started rolling the EMUI 10 beta update for this phone. The update is hitting the device with the version number V10.0.0.146 and is based on Android 10.
The update weighs in around a massive 4.32 GB and is currently available for users in India. The update brings in all the new features and goodies of the EMUI 10 as well as the Android 10.
You can check out the screenshots of the update received on the devices, shared by some of the users:
The update has hit the units of those users who have previously registered for the EMUI 10 beta program. Besides, the stable EMUI 10 update for the Honor View 10 is expected to start rolling out in January or February next year.
Notably, the update is hitting the units via OTA in batches and will take some time in hitting all the units. However, users of the Honor View 10 can manually check for the update notification by heading to Apps > System > Software update. Tap the Check for Update.
