[Live in New Zealand] Huawei Nova 5T EMUI 10 (Android 10) update rolling out widely via HiCare app

This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on Jan 20) follows:

To date, more than twenty Huawei/Honor smartphones are running on the latest EMUI 10 based on Android 10. The first to receive the update was the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro followed by the Mate 20 series.

Somehow, Huawei managed to sneak the Nova 5T in there, with the device receiving its stable EMUI 10 update in mid-November 2019.

The update was limited to a few people in Europe, but going forward, the Nova 5T EMUI 10 rollout is spreading to more markets. Folks in Europe’s Belgium, Germany and Slovenia can confirm that the OS is now available to download.

The OTA is arriving as EMUI and weighs in at a huge 4.65GB, at least for those coming from EMUI 9.1 based on Android Pie.

If you already received the initial EMUI update, you should receive the new B184 as an incremental update weighing in at 788MB. It brings bug fixes, system stability improvements, and a new December 2019 security patch.

Huawei Mobile Australia has also published a tweet on its official Twitter account confirming that the Nova 5T EMUI 10 update is now available to download via the HiCare app alongside the P30 and Mate 20 series.
