End of the road appears for Huawei Mate 20 seriesThe Mate 20 series, launched by Huawei in 2018, was quite tough compared to its competitors when we consider the conditions of that period. Powered by the Kirin 980 chipset, which is the successor to the Kirin 970 processor, the Mate 20 series will now be deprived of security updates. This decision taken by Huawei means that any security weaknesses that may occur in the phones will not be eliminated.
Huawei announced in recent months Mate 20 series (except Lite) EMUE 11 update would he explained. As a matter of fact, the company, which started to distribute EMUI 11 to Mate 20 users in certain regions from the beginning of this month, after its announcement, plans to fully deliver the update to the global market before the end of the first quarter of 2021. But the EMUI 11 update will apparently be the last update the Mate 20 series will receive. After that, neither the security update nor the user interface update will come to the members of the series.
By the way, only Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 X are affected by this decision made by Huawei; The 5G version of the Mate 20 X will continue to receive update support for a while, as it was announced later from its siblings. So if you are one of those using the 5G variant of the Huawei Mate 20 X, we can say that you will get a security update for a while.
