today’s EMUI 11 release was widely expected to be based on Google’s new Android 11 update, but that’s not the case on the beta we loaded onto our Huawei P40 Pro unit the other day. Instead, Huawei’s latest Android software is still based on Google’s Android 10 release from last year—but that doesn’t mean there aren’t enough upgrades here to justify an EMUI version bump.
Now, you may be wondering when Huawei plans to roll out an Android 11-based EMUI update. Because of the ongoing U.S. trade restrictions, Huawei was likely unable to receive early access to Android 11’s source code, which was just made public the other day. That means the company has only had access to the Android 11 source code for a few days now, making it nearly impossible for them to have an Android 11-based EMUI build ready for launch. We’ll keep an eye out for when Huawei is ready to launch an upgraded EMUI on top of an Android 11 base.
