This package can be accessed by users on stable EMUI 9.1 and will weigh 4.47GB while beta EMUI 10 users can download the OTA update sized 1GB. EMUI 10 is available on the Mate 20 and Mate Pro units in Europe as version 10.0.0.154 and comes in at 4.50GB. The Huawei Mate 20 X (4G) is receiving EMUI version 10.0.0.180.
EMUI 10 will bring a slew of features including system-wide dark mode, navigation gestures, Live Caption when media is playing, better Sharing Menu, optimized Permissions, Accent Colors and Themes, and more to Huawei smartphones.
