After being in beta for the last couple of months, the EMUI 8 update for the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus is now rolling out globally. EMUI is Huawei’s own variant of Android and the version 8 build is based on Android Oreo. The release has started but it appears that Huawei is slow rolling it for now. It could be several weeks before the update gets to everyone.
The update for the Huawei P10 and the P10 Plus is build 188.8.131.520(C636) and this build appears to be for all variants of the devices (single-SIM, dual-SIM). The update also comes with the February 2018 Android Security Update patch.

As part of their efforts to get the EMUI 8, Android Oreo based update out, Huawei has opened up a limited beta for owners of the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus. The program will allow a limited number of P10 users to sign up for the beta and download the Oreo based build to their devices. The beta follows the release of the Oreo update for the Mate 9, last year’s flagship phablet from the company.
Huawei has already released the Oreo update for the P10 in China so this beta for the international versions of the phone will likely go quickly given the company has some experience with the build and the device together.

Good news this morning for Canadian readers. The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus are coming June 6th to various carriers in the country. Both the P10 and the P10 Plus were announced back in February at MWC and both have been well received. Reviews of the phones have been overall positive and Huawei has sold millions of units internationally. To this point, neither phone has been in the North American market but it has been widely expected that Canada would see the phones first. The US will likely see them too, just under a different name. That’s not confirmed however.
For those who have not had a chance, you can read my review of the P10 to get my thoughts. Personally, I’m a big fan of this phone and it is one of the fastest phones I’ve ever reviewed.
The P10 will be coming to Bell, Fido, Rogers and Videotron while the larger P10 Plus will be exclusive to Rogers for the initial release.
