Huawei has just announced that their upcoming Huawei and Honor flagship phones will be getting Android Q right after the Pixel phones.
On the Chinese social media Weibo, Huawei disclosed that EMUI based Android Q will come to their phones immediately after Google releases the OS on their Pixel phones. The Huawei and Honor devices that will be receiving the OS update include:
- Mate 20
- Mate 20 Pro
- Mate 20X
- Mate 20 RS
- P30 Pro
- Honor View 20 (V20)
- Honor Magic 2
Now, this is a big promise to deliver on, as we all know Huawei’s custom Android interface EMUI is a highly customized skin, far from stock Android. It has a long list of its own features and apps so it’ll be interesting to see what a combination of Android Q and the latest EMUI looks like especially since Android Q is bringing a long list of features of its own.
Huawei hasn’t announced what new features or visuals they’ll be adding with the Android Q updated EMUI. Android Q is coming out shortly after the release of Beta 5 and 6 in Q3 2019 so the ETA for it to appear on Huawei flagships should be somewhere later in 2019, around September or October.
