Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro get EMUI 8.1 open beta in China, based on Android 8.1

Today Huawei has made the open beta release of EMUI 8.1 available for its Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, and Mate 10 Porsche Design. The new software is based on Android 8.1 Oreo, still the latest officially released iteration by Google.

EMUI 8.1 is currently out in China only, for the various Mate 10 models that are sold over there. It brings with it the GPU Turbo feature that made its debut in the Honor Play. The company has promised to outfit other models with the technology, and now it’s delivering on that promise.

It’s not certain that an international beta release of EMUI 8.1 will ever be outed, but we’ll let you know if it does show up. The good news here is that the company is working on releasing Android 8.1 for the Mate 10 line, and the finalized version should arrive within a few weeks.
