February 02, 2019: Following its launch in December 2018, Huawei Nova 4 is now receiving its first software update that bumps the software version to EMUI 22.214.171.124.
According to the brief changelog, this update tags along optimizations to the wide-angle AI camera effect and makes the colors more vivid when capturing scenes like the blue sky. Although not mentioned, the update should also iron out any kinks in the initial software as well as improve general system stability.
So far, we know the OTA is rolling out to model numbers VCE-AL00 and VCE-TL00, the Chinese variants and being airborne, it will take some time before all units get the nod to download the update.

Huawei Nova 4 became only the second ever smartphone to go public and a punch-hole display screen, days after the Samsung Galaxy A8s. But on this page, we won’t be delving into the design and specs of the device, rather, we are here about software updates, major and minor updates, be it official coming from Huawei or unofficial updates sourced from the huge Android developer community.

Huawei Nova 4 Android Q update
- Eligible for Android Q update
- No official release date, yet
As for when Android Q will arrive, we are potentially looking at a Q3 or Q4 2019 release date, much like it happened with EMUI 9.0, where the first Huawei device got it in Q4 2018.
On the other hand, things could easily change if Huawei decides to take part in the early beta program of Android Q, unlike last year where the company had to wait until September to begin beta testing Pie.
