Huawei removes all EMUI ROM downloads from their website

Many Android users find it much easier to directly download updates from the manufacturer’s website and upgrade their devices themselves. Huawei smartphones could also be updated using the above specified method, however, this might be not the case now. The Chinese manufacturer has removed all of its EMUI images for its smartphones from the official EMUI website. While visiting the website, we were greeted with the message: "SD card update packages are no longer supplied. By this time, all the SD card upgrade packages will be removed from the website and the download page will be closed."

You can dismiss the message and carry on to the website, however, if you click any of the smartphones images, you are directed to a blank web page, which confirms that all the download links along with ROM’s have been removed. There is no explanation yet as to why Huawei has decided to remove all its EMUI ROMs from its website, though the message displayed while visiting the website says that it is done in order to deliver a more convenient and satisfactory update service.

Huawei is all set to launch its latest flagship smartphone, the Huawei Mate 10 on October 16th. The smartphone is tipped to sport a 6-Inch QHD display which may be near bezel-less. The smartphone is expected to be powered by the company’s recently launched Kirin 970 chip. The new processor sports an AI onboard the SoC itself and can process data much faster. Huawei claims that the Mate 10 will be capable of achieving  faster data transfer capabilities of up to 1.2Gbps and offer simultaneous dual-SIM 4G support. 

The Huawei Mate 10 is expected to be launched with Android Oreo with an updated EMUI. Currently, the EMUI 5.1 is the latest version which is based upon Android Nougat 7.1 and brings about features like one-button navigation, improved security, machine learning, multi-window support and quick switching option.
