EMUI 11: These Huawei and Honor smartphones may not get new OS

Huawei introduced in September 2020 at the Huawei Developer Conference a new proprietary shell — EMUI 11 based on Android 10, which brings quite a lot of innovations both in the interface and in functionality.

The first batch of devices has already received a stable version of new OS. However, for many smartphones, Huawei has not yet started distributing EMUI 11 and some of them may not receive this update. According to the thematic resource HuaweiCentral, so far EMUI 11 has not received and risks being left without such models at all:
