Huawei P30 Pro Android Q update

  • EMUI 10 beta based on Android Q leaked
  • Official update expected in Q3/Q4 2019

Huawei P30 Pro, surprisingly, missed out on Googles Android Q beta testing program, with the Mate 20 Pro the only Huawei device allowed. Even so, the device is among the ones expected to get Q right on the back of the Mate 20 Pro and it seems Huawei is already working towards this, with a leaked EMUI 10 beta already doing rounds.

The stable rollout is expected to begin in Q4 2019, although Huawei should first provide a public beta version before pushing the final version.
