Android 8.1 Oreo beta on Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro

Huawei has announced the release of EMUI 8.1 open beta with Android Oreo 8.1 for its flagship smartphones Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. However, this update is only for the Chinese users, but we can expect the global release is not far behind.

As mentioned clearly that it’s a beta version and mainly meant for developers and testers because it might contain bugs and errors. If you think you are OK with this then you can register for the beta program by going to the Huawei Pollen Club official forum.

You can only participate in the beta testing program if your smartphone version is B113 and your device has not been rooted.

The new Android 8.1 Oreo update on Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro also brings new EMUI 8.1 skin along with minor tweaks here and there. It also brings the GPU Turbo technology to the Huawei Mate 10 which can improve the performance of mobile GPUs and graphics processing efficiency by 60%.

Currently, the Android 8.1 Oreo update is only available for Huawei Mate 10 Full Netcom, Huawei Mate 10 Mobile Custom Full Netcom Edition (ALP-TL00), Huawei Mate 10 Pro Full Netcom (including Porsche Design Edition), Huawei Mate 10 Pro Mobile Custom Full Netcom Edition (BLA-TL00).
