Huawei's revealed details on Chinese social network Weibo confirming that their flagship devices will get an EMUI version of Android Q.

With the beta of Android Q being available to non-Pixel devices, the company's rollout of the next EMUI version will be available on the Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20X, Mate 20 RS, Huawei P30 Pro, P30, Honor View20 (V20), and Honor Magic 2.

No timeline has been issued. The Android Q beta which is only available for the Mate 20 Pro currently has stock Android visuals but keep in mind that the release is not final and subject to bugs.

Google have soft launched Android Q's 3rd beta build at Google I/O this year. New features include system-wide dark mode, navigation gestures and privacy enhancements. Huawei is trying to build EMUI aesthetically close to Android's own design so it's likely they'll adopt the same design principles.
