Huawei is slowly noticing the problem with outdated Android smartphones. Some people claim that this problem lies with Google, but it is smartphone manufacturers who are responsible for providing updates to users. That’s why Huawei announced that selected models will receive regular updates in a two-month cycle. Below you can find their list.
The two-month update delivery cycle proposed by Huawei is not what Google provides in the form of monthly security bulletins that contain the latest patches. However, this is better than the current lack of any periodicity. As part of the aforementioned updates, Huawei will provide not only the latest security patches, but also new functionalities. At the beginning, the users of selected models will be given the option of unlocking the smartphone using the face. The Face Unlock feature will be available for: P10, P20, P20 Pro, Mate9, Mate10, Mate10 Pro, nova3e, nova 2lite and nova 2i.
Huawei needs to work on more frequent Android updates
All indications are that users of Android smartphones are aware of the importance of using the current software. Once, people aware of this problem were doomed to a series of Nexus devices (currently Pixel) that use a system prepared directly by Google. Now the situation looks much better. One of the first producers to solve the problem of the lack of updates containing security patches was Samsung. Koreans have been providing monthly security bulletins for their flagships and several high-end models for a long time. The proverbial “average” is updated quarterly. However, there are also companies that solve this problem even better.
Nokia (or more precisely HMD Global) is very concerned about the safety of its customers. In the case of fins, each smartphone with Android is updated every month. This also applies to budget models. This policy is very positively reflected in good sales results. The Nokia brand has always been associated with high quality, so HMD Global had to ensure that this association also applies to new smartphones. That’s why nobody should be surprised that Huawei, which directly competes with Samsung, also begins to take care of updating its devices.
