The U.S. federal government’s order has been full of suspense and dilemma for users who has or wants to purchase Huawei and Honor Android devices for the last two months. While Huawei has supposedly been working on an alternative to Android, the development of EMUI 10 based upon Android Q seems happening at full speed too.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”bzyqm5d3e04029f48f”]
Android Q is not yet released and is in a 4th beta-testing state on a lot of smartphones. Huawei has recently got back its Android license, is also on the list of beta testers as its sub-brand honor. The development of EMUI 10 which is Huawei’s exclusive skin based upon Android Q is complete steam ahead in spite of the shadow of a United States blacklist and the Honor 10 and Honor 8X mobile phones launched in 2015, will be getting the Android Q upgrade. Previously only the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro smartphones had been confirmed to get Android Q update.
The Honor 10 which was introduced last summer with EMUI 8.1 based upon Android 8.1 Oreo and ultimately upgraded to EMUI 9.0 based upon Android 9 Pie previous year itself. The Honor 8X ran a somewhat refined UI out-of-the-box with EMUI 8.2 based upon Android 8.1 Oreo when it released last year. However, it got an upgrade to Android Pie in March this year.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”zxikm5d3e04a8f1451″]
Now, according to Honor India, the official twitter account of it, the EMUI 10, which is based on Android Q is under development for both smartphone models – Honor 10 and Honor 8X. However, we don’t see any assurance and leaves a question mark about Android Q update for other popular Honor devices such as Honor View 20, Honor Play, and more. The Honor 7X, from 2017, is most likely to get the Android Pie update by the end of this month. Huawei devices, Mate 20-series, and P30-series are initially in line to get the Android Q upgrade as and when it rolls out.
