Updated: More Huawei devices get EMUI 9.0 Beta update. According to the source, Huawei has opened EMUI 9.0 Beta slots for the Huawei Mate 10 Pro as well, along with other devices such as Honor Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Honor View 10, and Honor 10. So see how to download and install EMUI 9 beta based on Android 9.0 Pie.
Huawei’s EMUI 9.0 Pie Beta program is now rolling out for several flagship phones. We have seen EMUI 9 Beta for Huawei P20 and P20 Pro. Today, right after Mate 20 Pro’s launch, the manufacturer started enrolling Huawei Mate 10 users for the latest Android 9.0 Pie beta firmware update. All you need to do is download the Friendly User Test app and register your device for latest Android 9.0 Pie beta based on EMUI 9.
EMUI 9 features a new and simpler user interface similar to that of the latest flagship Mate 20 Pro. According to the users, who have already signed up for the beta testing program, the firmware feels faster and smoother in transition. The boot up time has been decreased significantly. The beta version feel near stable. This is because Huawei has been testing and optimizing the EMUI 9 firmware for long. The face unlock features that was introduced to the Mate 10 devices not so long ago now works faster. Most importantly, the camera UI has been revamped that looks just like the Huawei P20 camera app and the picture quality improved significantly.
However, Huawei missed out on certain things. The notifications are still white and cannot be turned darker even after applying a theme. The new Google Pixel navigation gestures may not have been implemented as well.
The new EMUI 9.0 beta comes to a single variant of Huawei Mate 10 – ALP-L29 with build number C636. More variants in different region will receive similar update along with the Huawei Mate 10 Pro soon. So stay tuned. Once you sign up for the Huawei’s Friendly User Test (FUT), you will get an OTA update notification. Simply download it and apply. Note that the full firmware file is well over 3 GB in size.
