Huawei, the new update arrives for 5 smartphones: what are they

EMUI 10.1 is ready to be released in stable version for the first 6 Huawei devices: here are what they are and the main new features

After the beta phase that lasted a few weeks, Huawei is ready to release the stable version of EMUI 10.1 for the first group of smartphones. This is a total of six devices, including two top-of-the-line devices such as the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro and the brand new MatePad Pro tablet, launched to challenge the iPad Pro. On the update to EMUI 10.1 there is great attention. In fact, this is not just a transitional update, but a real update that brings with it several important new features, such as the new MeeTime video calling app and the Celia voice assistant.

The release of the update will happen progressively for the devices and before the arrival in Italy it could take some time. Per controllare se la EMUI 10.1 è disponibile sul proprio smartphone, basta accedere nelle Impostazioni del dispositivo e verificare se c’è un nuovo aggiornamento. In alternativa si può utilizzare l’app HiCare presente su tutti gli smartphone Huawei e dedicata appositamente agli aggiornamenti software e a tutte le novità.

EMUI 10.1: all the news

Why is there so much anticipation around the release of EMUI 10.1? Because it's not just an update that improves the stability of the system, but a real update that releases new features and makes Huawei smartphones take another step towards complete autonomy from Google services. What's new in the EMUI 10.1 update?

First and foremost are two new, very useful applications: MeeTime and Celia. MeeTime is Huawei's answer to FaceTime and all the video calling apps and will be available only to Huawei users. Celia, on the other hand, is the new voice assistant that is going to replace Google Assistant. At this early stage, however, it won't be available in Italian.

Improvements in other aspects of the smartphone as well: a Muti-windows mode that allows you to better manage apps in multitasking, new animations for the Always on Display and the dark theme that supports more third-party apps.
