Huawei Mate 10 Lineup Receiving a Significant Bug Fix Update

The Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro have a significant bug fixing update rolling out in the manufacture’s home country, China.  The update brings a number of bug fixes and stability improvements to both devices.  The update to EMUI, the company’s Android Oreo build, is version 8.0.0.127 (SP1C00) and it is the same for both devices.

From an optimization perspective, there are seven improvements noted in the release notes for the build.

  • Optimizes Camera and the Navigation dock.
  • Optimizes the Beauty feature by adding special touches based on the genders of the photographed subjects.
  • Optimizes the accessibility of the Navigation dock, which can now be used in Ultra power saving mode and the notification panel.
  • Optimizes the system power consumption by controlling the consumption of third-party apps
  • Simplifies the operation of the status bar (tapping on it to return to the call screen is supported).
  • Increases the speed of grabbing WeChat lucky money.
  • Enjoy being faster than the rest even when in the same network environment.

As for fixes, there are five noted:

  • Fixes an issue where a hidden WLAN with strong signal could not be connected to.
  • Fixes an issue where time zones could not be automatically updated according to location for certain carrier SIMs in countries with multiple time zones.
  • Fixes an issue where music being played over in-car Bluetooth couldn’t be paused.
  • Fixes an issue where Kaiseda K8 Locks couldn’t be connected to.
  • Fixes an issue where Camera would occasionally fail to open or display a black screen shortly after opening.

With the firmware now rolling out in China, it is only a matter of time before the international variants of the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro see this update.  Huawei, like other manufactures, tends to release updates close to home first to make sure everything runs smoothly before turning the spigot up on the rest of the world.

As for the US, the Mate 10 Pro is available for pre-order with a shipping date of February 18th.  It is $799 with a free $150 Amazon Gift card on Amazon.
