April 19, 2019: Owners of the Mate 20 X in China have a new stable EMUI update arriving as version 188.8.131.52, up from the recent version 184.108.40.206 beta that brought a bunch of improvements on top of April 2019 security patches. For those who had not installed the beta version, the stable EMUI 9.1 is very huge weighing in at 4.56GB, so be sure to get a stable Wi-Fi connection.
The OTA has just started rolling out, meaning it will take some time before all units receive the download notification.
March 16, 2019: The Mate 20 X in China with model numbers EVR-AL00 and EVR-TL00 is receiving a new update to EMUI 220.127.116.11, which adds multiple green apps and simplifies settings and options of the device.
According to the changelog, the new OTA certifies multiple apps as green ones for your selection and simplifies settings and options for easier operation. After the update, TrustSpace will now be found in Security & privacy under Settings while the settings for Virus scan and other options now appear under Online virus scan.
Huawei says this update also combines the auto-update settings of the phone number directory and business card templates under Auto-update databases, making it easier to access all related settings in one place.

Huawei Mate 20 X Android Q update
- Eligible for Android Q
- Release date expected in Q3 or Q4 2019
The Mate 20 line of flagship devices usually receives at least two major Android OS upgrades. With the Mate 20 X running Android 9 Pie out of the box, the first OS upgrade will be Android Q, whose first public beta is expected at the Google I/O 2019 event.
Huawei didn’t have any device participating in Android P beta. We hope this will change with Android Q, but even if it does, we can’t guarantee that the Mate 20 X will be part of the program, but a stable update should be out in Q3 or Q4 2019.
