Huawei confirmed the road map for the upcoming EMUI 10 update based on Android 10 at IFA 2019. It looks like the company is planning to upgrade 30 devices to Android 10 by Q2 2020. While the Mate 30 series will be the first ones to come with EMUI 10, the Huawei P30 Pro is expected to get the update first, in November 2019. That said, we are still unsure which version of EMUI 10 will the Mate 30 series adorn since the phones won’t be using Google services.

According to the roadmap, Honor devices will start getting the EMUI 10 update based on Android 10 in December 2019. The first Honor devices being the Honor 20, 20 Pro and Honor View 20, alongside the Huawei Mate 20 series. The Mate 10 series and P20 series will be updated to Android 10 in March 2020. The full EMUI 10 roadmap is mentioned below:

December 2019 - Huawei Mate 20 series, Honor 20, 20 Pro and Honor View 20
March 2020 - Huawei P20 Lite, P20 series and Mate 10 series
Q2 2020 - More models

"More models" mentioned above could include devices like the Honor 8X and Honor 10.

EMUI 10 was first showcased at the Huawei Developer Conference in August 2019. The Android 10 update will bring a new UI, system-wide dark mode and much more. Moreover, Huawei will allow third-party developers to make use of the dark mode on Huawei phones by merely calling an API. It will also bring an upgraded magazine lock-screen and support for a colourful always-on display. Additionally, Huawei is also looking to introduce an Android Auto replacement - the HiCar. 

EMUI 10 will officially roll out with the launch of Huawei Mate 30 series on September 19. The launch event will take place in Munich.
