Huawei is not known for its particularly fast updates or dedication to security patches, but the company has been doing better with the Mate 20 Pro. Security updates haven’t been instant or monthly, but a current update every two months isn’t so bad. The company is now rolling out the latest update, version 9.0.01.83, featuring the January 2019 security patch, bringing it in line with Google’s Pixel devices.
Also included with the update is a dedicated Super Macro Mode (this mode was automatically enabled before if you had Smart AI on, but now you can manually trigger it), an improved zoom button, improved gesture navigation, and various other fixes.
It’s good to see Huawei focusing on keeping their flagship up to date, but we can only hope that they keep it up. The update is now rolling out so if you have a Mate 20 Pro, keep an eye for its arrival!
