Following the footsteps of Samsung’s One UI 2.1, Huawei also came with its own iteration of EMUI 10.1/Magic UI 3.1 which is based on Android 10 and provides some additional features over EMUI 10 or Magic UI 10.
The EMUI 10.1 or Magic UI 3.1 is meant for the Huawei or Honor phones that are already running the Android 10 OS. As of now, quite a bunch of phones from Huawei have picked up the EMUI 10.1 or the Magic UI updates.
And the latest entrants to this list are the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Honor View30, and the Honor View30 Pro 5G. Note that the EMUI 10.1 is live for the Huawei Mate 20 Pro while both the Honor phones are picking up the Magic UI 3.1 updates.
EMUI 10.1 brings in a lot of features like multi-screen collaboration, sound booster, Huawei Assistant Ceila, new UX design, Huawei share, Cast + Wireless Projection, new themes, Deterministic Latency Engine, enhanced privacy and more.
Whereas, Magic UI 3.1 is also not far behind and it tags most of the features from the EMUI 10.1 along with some extra features to cater to the Honor phones.
The updates for all the three devices are live in their home country of China. Let us take a look at the updates one by one:
