All the models mentioned are receiving an OTA file which takes them from EMUI 22.214.171.124 to version 126.96.36.199 SP1. As for the innovations introduced, alongside generic optimizations of system stability and performance, support for WeChat Pay is added among the payment methods that can be associated with Huawei Smart Pay.
Huawei P30, P30 Pro, P30 Lite:
The news of the updates Staying at Huawei, there is another full series that is receiving a new update and it is the one made up of Huawei P30, Huawei P30 Pro and Huawei P30 Lite. Unfortunately for none of the three smartphones the time for EMUI 11 has yet come (here is our in-depth analysis on the news) and the consolation is rather meager: the security patches of December 2020 are rolled out. In particular, the former top of the range Huawei P30 and P30 Pro are receiving an OTA file of only 139 MB which contains the firmware version EMUI 10.1.0.194. The same update is also arriving on the cheaper Huawei P30 Lite, which for its part is receiving a 103 MB OTA package and firmware version 10.0.0.381. In none of the three cases does the official changelog report any other news.
