Earlier this month, Huawei launched the 2019 EMUI 11 Beta program for P-flagship P30 / P30 Pro devices. Today, the company has expanded the program to 14 other devices all running on the same SoC.

As MyDriver reports, Huawei has announced Open Beta for various Huawei and Honor older flagships and tablets. The program on Huawei and Magic UI 4.0 devices for Honor brings EMUI 11 based on Android 10. You can see the list below:

Huawei devices

  • HUAWEI Mate 20
  • HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro
  • HUAWEI Mate 20X
  • HUAWEI Mate 20X 5G
  • HUAWEI Mate X
  • HUAWEI nova5 Pro

Devices of honor

  • PART 20
  • PART 20 Pro
  • PART V20
  • HONOR Magic2

Huawei MatePad tablets

  • HUAWEI MediaPad M6 10.8
  • HUAWEI MediaPad M6 8.4
  • HUAWEI MediaPad M6 Turbo

It is worth noting that the above devices have already received a closed beta version of EMUI 11 and Magic UI 4.0. Interestingly, they are powered by Huawei’s two-year-old Kirin 980 SoC.

Although it is a very old CPU, it is built on a 7nm process that other companies still use on their chipsets. And it is the world’s first 7nm chipset with dedicated NPUs (Neural Processing Unit). In addition, it’s good to see Huawei updating older chipsets despite missing Android 11 features and Google Mobile Services due to the U.S. ban.

Anyway, the current Beta is for the Chinese market and as usual, users will have to go to the Huawei Club to sign up for it. You can follow the steps below exactly to get the latest update:

  • at Huawei Club (application)
    • Open the Huawei Club application -> Forum -> right corner -> 㗊 -> EMUI area -> Beta program.
  • using a PC,
    • Huawei Club website-> section-> EMUI-> Beta program

With that in mind, the devices above which it was launched globally, will receive an update by the first quarter of 2021 according to the company’s timeline. Assuming a steady update of public beta users by next month in China, global users expect to arrive soon after.

However, there is no exact date yet, and we suggest that you wait for the company to officially state it. In the meantime, you can take a look at the latest features of EMUI 11 that were announced at HDC 2020 in September.
