Huawei's updating devices to EMUI 10

Nothing better than an update in the morning!

Huawei, despite all the bad press and fearmongering out there, makes a hell of a device.  The P30 Pro is still my home gaming phone and recorder of most of our videos on this page.  And those devices are still getting updates, like to their new EMUI 10.

Essentially, EMUI 10 is the Huawei take on Android Q, bringing those core Android updates and back end features and then including some fancy Huawei takes.

Roll out of the update should hit P30 / P30 Pro on January 14th.  Mate 20 Pro will be Feb 4.  Older P20 / Pro / lite will be March.

Check out their write up.  I'm writing this the night before it hits my P30 Pro, so nothing here for me yet.  I'll let you know how I like the changes.
