Chinese technology company Huawei has started rolling out the latest EMUI 12 update on many of its eligible devices, including the flagship models of Huawei Mate 30 & 30 Pro. This is a great start of the year for Huawei smartphone users since they have been awaiting the release of EMUI 12 stable for a while now. The company has not made the user interface available for its entire smartphone range. This means EMUI 12 update will only be working on selected Huawei smartphone models.

Huawei Mate 30 and its better half, the Mate 30 Pro came out in the latter half of 2021. The device got out of the box with EMUI 10 and soon got the EMUI 11 update. The smartphone received a lot of positive critique for its beautiful, luxurious design and excellent performance. Aided with a powerful and versatile camera and even great battery life, the only enemy of Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 was its non-inclusion of Google Apps. However, this didn’t make the people refrain from buying this flagship device from the Chinese multinational technology corporation, Huawei.
In fact, Huawei’s survival is no feat. Even after the United States banned the company back in 2019, it has still managed to remain one of the largest smartphone manufacturers. But this ban ended up severing Huawei from Google, rendering them unable to use Android anymore. Huawei took no time to get back on its feet and switched to its own operating system, called the Harmony OS.
