Huawei’s P20 Pro has just received the long-awaited EMUI10 update, which, initially, was scheduled for May 2020. This update brings all the new features announced with EMUI10, such as the improved phone settings, various general optimizations, Huawei’s new Assistant, which replaces Google’s Feed/Discover, and many other improvements to the general user experience. We also see the addition of the Huawei Browser, as well as the possibility of accessing the Member Centre app through the phone settings, although this one has to be downloaded separately from AppGallery. Furthermore, this update also includes April’s 2020 security patch, with the P20 Pro having been stuck on March’s security patch since the beginning of April.

Interestingly enough, this update also includes a patch improving system compatibility with some third-party applications, although, as usual, it is unclear what these “third-party” applications are.

This new update changes the version from CLT-L29 to CLT-L29 and is 4.53 GB in size. The second patch changes the version to CLT-L29

The patch notes read as following:
