EMUI 11 & Magic UI 4.0: Here’s the List of Eligible Huawei and Honor Phones

Huawei and its sub-brand Honor have quite the market share in the smartphone business. Despite the company’s differences with the US, it has managed to maintain a strong position for itself. Now, every year, Google launches a new Android version, and Huawei and Honor patch their EMUI and Magic UI on top of it. Last year, we had Huawei devices running on EMUI 10 and Magic UI 3.0, based on Android 10 OS. Now Android 11 is official. So, here we will discuss Android 11-based EMUI 11 and Magic UI 4.0.

EMUI 11 and Magic UI 4.0 Based on Android 11

Dr Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei’s Consumer Business Software Department, has confirmed in an online event that EMUI 11 will announce in Q3 2020. It is expected that the next generation’s EMUI will debut alongside the upcoming Huawei Mate 40 series.

Recently, the Huawei Member Center app, available on AppGallery, has received the latest update in China. In the changelog, “Optimized for EMUI 11” is clearly written, which suggests development for the next version of EMUI has started.

It took Huawei two months of testing before rolling a stable version of EMUI 10 for the Mate 20 and P30 devices from Huawei. As Magic UI is just a rebranded form of EMUI, it didn’t take the company long to roll out Magic UI 3 for the Honor View 20, Honor 20, and Honor 20 Pro devices. A report has come in that, to date, more than 50 million devices worldwide are running on EMUI 10.

Now, it is not even a fraction of the total devices that Huawei has out there. So it will probably be the Q3 of 2020, by which all the eligible Huawei devices will be running on EMUI 10. So, by the time this becomes a reality, we will probably have Huawei working on EMUI 11 on top of Android 11, which will launch later this year.

Now, based on past experiences, we have come up with a list of Huawei and Honor phones that are most likely to receive the Android 11-based EMUI 11 and Magic UI 4.0 update. These are just speculations, though, and the actual results might change in the future. However, the list so far seems fairly true.
