Huawei Nova 4e Android update status

Currently: Android P

Currently the latest official Android version for Huawei Nova 4e is Android P.

Upcoming updates?

Expected: Android 10

Huawei has promised that Huawei Nova 4e will get Android 10. However, this is only the manufacturer's promise, as far as we know - Huawei might release even further updates to the phone later or might end support earlier on.

About Huawei's Android policy

As Huawei has been on United States export ban list since 2019, Huawei doesn't have access to official Google Android versions or Google services. Currently, Huawei is shipping updates called EMUI 11, EMUI 12, etc to its phones. However, for example, EMUI 11 is not Android 11. Instead, it is a Huawei-customized version of Android 10.

So, we can't currently tell much information about Huawei's Android update status, as they are doing it totally differently than anyone else. Basically, Huawei's implementation is not considered official Android and therefore, we can't list their updates here properly.

It is very uncertain whether Huawei phones will get official Android updates, at all. Only time will really tell.

Why my phone still has the older Android version...?

Please note that most of the time the new Android versions get rolled out relatively slowly: manufacturers don't deliver over-the-air (OTA) Android updates to all users at the same time, but instead, roll out the update in cycles.

Additionally, if your phone has been bought from an operator, this complicates things. While the unlocked phones might get the updates, the operator-specific, so-called "locked phones" might be out of luck. Typically, the large operators have their own customizations in place for the phones sold through them and due those customizations, the update schedule for operator locked phones can be totally different than those that are unlocked.

You can try to manually check if there's an update available for your phone by visiting your phone's Settings. There, you can find a place for System updates. Visit that section: it will check whether there's updates available for your phone right now.

If you think our data is incorrect, please let us know and we'll fix it ASAP.
