One of the major problems with the Android phone manufacturers is lack of timely updates. Companies like Samsung and Huawei, have earned a bad repute by providing slow updates for their phones. Huawei, however, aims to change that by promising to provide the bi-monthly updates to an array of its flagships and midrange phones.
Not only the latest phones but the flagships from 2016 will also be getting bi-monthly updates from now on. The main reason behind these updates may be the heavy UI customization that prevails as a trend in the Chinese OEMs like Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo.
Notably, with a recent update, Huawei P20 Pro has also got a super slow-mo feature like the Galaxy S9. Seems like the company has finally realized the importance of frequent updates. Huawei’s bi-monthly updates will cover the following handsets
- Huawei P10
- Huawei P20
- Huawei P20 Pro
- Huawei Mate 9
- Huawei Mate 10
- Huawei Mate 10 Pro
- Huawei nova3e
- Huawei nova 2lite
- Huawei nova 2i
The update cycle will start for the above-listed devices before the end of July which will include security patches and face unlock feature. The security patches will compliment the security configuration of the handsets while face unlock, well we all know how much popular feature it is nowadays.
However, Huawei does not remain the only company to provide the feature via updates. Nokia has also confirmed that the face unlock will arrive in Nokia phones with OTA updates.
It’s good to see that the Huawei not only aims to provide bi-monthly updates to its handset but also reserves an aggressive sales policy ahead by the setting its sales goals to 200 million units.
