Huawei Mate Xs EMUI 10.1 beta update rolling out, rollback to EMUI 10 possible

Foldable smartphones were thought to be the new evolution of smartphones. However, a couple of years in and the folding smartphones we have seen leave a lot to be desired and the pricing, well, lets just say ‘early-adopters’ tax’ is a thing.

One of the folding smartphones we have seen is Huawei’s Mate XS. This device is different from the other folding smartphones in that, it folds outwards instead of folding in like many other foldable.

One would expect that such a unicorn device would get as much support and attention from Huawei as possible. ANd for the most part, yes! This device has been pretty well-updated.

Last we saw the Huawei Mate Xs get the April 2020 security patch update with a few bug-fixes and security enhancements. More on that here. Today, the company is rolling out EMUI 10.1 Beta to Huawei Mate Xs owners in the Beta channel.

This update, EMUI version 10.1.0.110 is an internal test build. It brings optimizations to the device’s camera and adds a Kingfisher micro stereo clock style in the screen display among many other enhancements.

The update is rolling out to users of the Mate Xs who signed up for the Beta program using the Huawei Club app. The eligible devices for this EMUI 10.1 update is the Huawei Mate Xs with model number TAH-AN00m III. It is also worth noting that this update is rolling out to users in China, at least for now.

Also worth noting is that, you can roll back to EMUI 10 should you have issues with EMUI 10.1. However, you will lose all your data in the process so you might want to make a backup of your device before updating to EMUI 10.1 Beta.
