Reports have it that Huawei has just started closed Beta recruitment for the company’s next version of EMUI, EMUI 10.1. The initial closed Beta run will be for the Honor 20 Youth Edition, Huawei Enjoy 10S.

Before taking the plunge and signing up for the EMUI 10.1 Beta update, Huawei is giving prospective testers a few precautions. As always, pre-release software is obviously not daily-driver material as many features are under development.

Some of the precautions that Huawei wants prospective testers to take note are as follows. Please note that this has been directly translated from Chinese.

1. Since some third-party applications are not compatible with Android 10, after the upgrade, there may be cases where the third-party applications cannot be used normally (such as flashback, stuck, power consumption, etc.). It is recommended that you try to update the application to the latest version in the Huawei application market . If you still cannot solve the problem, it is recommended that you wait patiently for the application update information and update it in time.
2. Please make sure that the mobile phone has 6G or more internal storage space, otherwise, there will be a risk of upgrade failure (see storage space method: Settings> Storage);
3. Please make sure that your mobile phone does not have ROOT.
