Huawei started the official rollout of EMUI 10.1 for the Huawei Mate 20 (Pro) at the end of June. Meanwhile, the rollout seems to branch out in the Netherlands and the Android 10-based update reaches a wider audience. Huawei has optimized features in the update.

It is now almost two years after the launch of the Huawei Mate 20 series in London. Since then, the phone has been equipped with EMUI 10 based on Android 10; this time Huawei follows with EMUI 10.1, and existing functions are further optimized. Several tech largest readers have announced that they will receive the EMUI 10.1 update on their Mate 20 Pro, about two weeks after Huawei started rolling out the new EMUI version.

EMUI 10.1 is still based on Android 10 and brings some minor changes, including the introduction of Huawei Today. With that, Huawei brings a successor to the Discover feed from Google. Although the Mate 20 Pro still uses GMS (Google Mobile Services), Huawei has developed a new service with Microsoft. In the Huawei Today feed you will find references to the Microsoft services and at the bottom of the page, we see, as usual, a news overview.
By the way, one is not stuck with the Huawei Today feed, via the settings it is possible to return to the Google Discover feed. In addition to the changes to the news overview, Huawei has dedicated the update to improving the Always-on-Display. The Chinese manufacturer has also added new animations for the in-display fingerprint scanner of the Mate 20 Pro. After EMUI 10, the development of multi-window functions started, which will be available from EMUI 10.1.

Finally, EMUI 10.1 contains a function to ‘charge your battery smart’, so that the battery should in principle last longer. Huawei thereby stops charging the phone as soon as the battery is charged to 80% of its capacity; the phone will only start charging again when you really need it. Such moments will take place in the morning, among other things, after your phone is charged as little as possible during the night hours. OnePlus previously introduced the same ‘charging plug’ at 80 percent of the capacity.
Several readers indicate that the rollout of EMUI 10.1 on their devices recently started – the editorial has not yet received the update on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. One reader reports that this update came in through the Support app on the Mate 20 phones. Earlier, the Android 10 update of the Huawei Mate 20 (Pro) also first rolled out via the Support app. Have you already received the update on your Mate 20 Pro? Let us know in the comments.
