Will Huawei Nova 5i and 5i Pro get Android 11 Update?
As both the phones run on Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box, this raises a question if these phones will get the Android 11 upgrade or not. Perhaps the answer is these two models are highly likely to get Android 10-based EMUI 11 citing a list of Android 11 supported Huawei devices from a credible source.
When will Huawei Nova 5i and 5i Pro get Android 11 Update?
As said, both Nova 5i and 5i Pro are highly likely to get Android 11. Perhaps the timeline isn’t available as of now because Huawei hasn’t kept the information public yet. The update won’t arrive at least this year as there are a few phones that are already on priority so expect a 2021 release.
EMUI 11 Status
Huawei’s EMUI 11 is the next iteration that the company is working on at the moment. EMUI 11 is based on Android 11 and it is expected to arrive by the end of this year probably in September 2020 as per a report. The concern here is that Huawei hasn’t been vocal about the update yet and thus, we aren’t aware of the exact date when EMUI 11 will launch and the accompanying roadmap.
