We’ve entered the second month of this year and Huawei is still expanding January 2023 EMUI security update for the global P50 Pro. Meanwhile, the wait for EMUI 13 has now become unpredictable for the users.
Huaweiblog reports that Huawei is expanding the reach of the January 2023 software update for P50 Pro global users with EMUI version 18.104.22.1680 and it comes with 358 megabytes of OTA package size. The upgrade will bring a new set of security patches for the smartphone.
Similar to the initial rollout, we’ve not noticed any new feature in the changelog. However, the main concern of Huawei smartphone users stands still as EMUI 13 because the phone will be the first to install new firmware.
But the fact is that Huawei has not yet published the EMUI 13 roadmap, which is splitting the views of Huawei smartphone owners.
EMUI 13 comes with a variety of new features that installs a brand new user experience for the consumers. Speaking of which, this software will let you grab a new smart folder with a variable layout, as well as service widgets group and stacking. On the other side, Huawei P50 Pro users will be able to use swipe-up gestures.
All of these features are exciting but we’re still bound to wait as there is no confirmation available on the next EMUI version.
You can download the latest software update via Settings > System & updates > then tap on Software update and follow the on-screen instructions. You can also request a new version via My Huawei app.
Huawei Nova Y90 and Y70 grabs January 2023 EMUI update
Huawei has released the January 2023 software update for the Huawei Nova Y90 and Y70 smartphones in the global market, and this firmware clearly improves these phones’ security aspects for a better user experience.
Both Huawei Nova Y90 and Y70 runs EMUI 12 out of the box but it would be interesting if the company could have sent EMUI 13 instead of the security patch. Speaking of which, no one knows, when Huawei will rollout EMUI 13 for global users for the time being.
Coming back to the rollout, January 2023 security update for Huawei Nova Y90 and Nova Y70 comes with EMUI version 22.214.171.124 and EMUI 126.96.36.199. This update is suggested to install on all of the devices sold marketed outside of China and will appear in batches.
We suggest the corresponding users look into the settings > then open System & updates, followed by a Software update, and then tap on CHECK FOR UPDATES. You can download the latest firmware also from the My Huawei app.
You should know that the update won’t erase your personal data but it is suggested for you back up any important data before updating the device. On the other hand, the package will be deleted automatically once the installation succeeds.
