Latest news

January 15, 2019: If your Honor 10 has model number COL-AL10 or COL-TL10, a new software update is available for your device. The update has software version EMUI 9.0.0.181 and once installed, you get the latest Android security patch, adds support for Bone ID, a feature that lets users of the Mate RS use their voice to unlock the device as well as make payments, adds voice commands to FlyPods Pro headsets, and fixes screen playback issues where it would occasionally turn black during multitasking.

In the new update, you also find AI-based features like AI Smart Scheduling for a superior gaming experience as well as plenty of other bug fixes and performance optimizations.

The update is airborne, which means it will take several days before every Honor 10 unit gets the download notification. This calls for patience, but if that’s not your cup of tea, you may want to try nagging the system update section in the settings menu and you might just get lucky.

January 14, 2019: Last Friday, Honor India started rolling out the stable version of Android 9 Pie with EMUI in the country.
