Since the company is not rolling out the update over-the-air (OTA), it’ll likely be available to users who registered for Huawei’s closed beta program. The program grants the registered users first-hand access to test the latest EMUI features before they are commercially available.
Beta users are mandatorily required to send feedbacks in order to help improve the overall outlook of the custom ROM and fix bugs before the stable ROM is released.
EMUI 10 is an important update as it improves smoothness and performance on existing devices. The company has even added a system-wide dark mode which even forces apps that don’t have a dark mode to comply. The system settings are better organized in this new version and the OS is designed to offer a better experience when working other devices like a Windows 10 laptop.
