Huawei promises to issue updates every two months for multiple devices




Smartphone manufacturer Huawei has promised, according to AusDroid, that different phones from the P, Mate and Nova series will receive firmware updates every two months. But how long that stays that way per device, is not told. In addition, multiple devices get face unlock .

According to Ausdroid it is at least the P10, P20, P20 Pro, Mate 9, 10 and 10 Pro and the Nova 3e, 2lite and 2i. These updates would contain both security patches and new features. The announcement follows very briefly on that of Oneplus, which promised three years of security updates.

The first of those updates will introduce face unlock on the above devices. However, it is not entirely clear whether these are all devices that get an update every two months, or that these are only the devices that get face unlock and other devices also get other updates.

However, such protection technology is known to be far from watertight. If a smartphone has only one front camera, which has the above mentioned devices, it can not make an estimate of depth. As a result, face unlock can be fooled with the help of an accurate, convincing photo.

Last month it became known that Huawei will no longer issue unlock codes for its bootloaders. This means that it is more difficult to install other operating systems on Huawei devices. A so-called custom rom is among other things an outcome when the manufacturer of a smartphone no longer makes updates for a device, but the community still does.
