Huawei P10 mobile phone line launched in 2017 gets a major update
Update brings May security patch and two new features
The Huawei P10 mobile phone line was launched in early 2017 with Android 7 customized with the EMUI 5.1 interface. Both Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus were later upgraded to Android 8 with the EMUI 8.1 interface and Android 9 with the EMUI 9.1 interface. As these devices have already received two major updates, they should not receive Android 10 customized with the EMUI 10 / 10.1 interface.
This does not mean that they have been completely abandoned by Huawei, as the company has started to release a major update containing the May 2020 Android security patch. and other useful resources.
The handsets of the Huawei P10 line have already been removed from the list of eligible phones for monthly and quarterly updates, but to the surprise of many, they are getting a major update with around 4.05GB.
As expected, this major update does not include EMUI 10.1, but it does come with two features that can be quite useful. The May 2020 security patch in this update is also very important, as it fixes two critical vulnerabilities, 22 high-risk vulnerabilities and 2 medium-risk vulnerabilities.
According to Huawei’s official changelog, the two new features introduced by the update are Smart Charge mode for battery charging and Huawei Assistant. Smart Charge mode helps reduce battery wear by adapting and preventing it from being charged continuously when full. This feature is enabled by default. Huawei Assistant is located on the home screen and displays smart reminders, personalized news, and other relevant content for the user.
