Huawei began distributing the first beta version of its proprietary EMUI 11 shell to users who signed up for the European testing program.
The testers are Huawei P40, P40 Pro, P40 Pro+ and Mate 30 Pro. The company announced the shell on September 10 at the HDC 2020 conference and started to recruit beta testers in Europe in mid-September. By the way, applications for participation are still accepted from those who want to – until October 12.
Now Huawei has started distributing the first beta shell for users of Huawei P40 and Mate 30 Pro series in Germany, UK, Russia, Turkey, Spain and other European regions. The update brings a new smart “always on display” (Always-on Display, AOD), improved Multi-window function (split screen with several windows), the ability to edit notes from different devices simultaneously, smooth animation and so on.
The EMUI firmware with the number 188.8.131.52 is available for airborne testers and is 2.32 GB in size.
Huawei warns that the beta version may contain errors, and rollback to the previous firmware version will be available only after the test is completed. Accordingly, if you are not ready for possible errors or inconveniences when using a smartphone, it is better to wait for the release of the stable version.
