The rollout for EMUI 10 based on Android 10 for the latest Huawei P30 Pro and P30 was officially set for February.

Vodafone pushed out their update early back in December for carrier-locked Huawei P30 and Mate 20 series devices in several countries, including UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands and more. It is claimed that Vodafone has now completed this process.

Now O2 have started rolling out their EMUI 10 update for Huawei P30 series, but there’s no confirmation regarding the Mate 20 devices. The new update comes in a 4.5GB with an additional 226MB of O2 bloatware apps.

Both Three and EE have made no comment about this and it is expected they will follow the official timeline and begin in February.

I personally have a SIM-free model and have not been able to get the update yet, so I expect it will come in February.

The new update from O2 should be EMUI 10.0.0.178 and you can try and force the update via:
