Huawei Mate 20 X EMUI 9.1 update now rolling out
The Huawei Mate 20 X is now receiving its promised EMUI 9.1 update. The new build is still based on Android Pie and involves a large 4GB download.
It comes with features like moon photography and GPU Turbo 3.0, and lets you set up video ringtones for specific contacts.
The new firmware also switches the file system of the Mate 20 X to EROFS, which should improve stability and performance.
That said, the update is currently seeding in the UK, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Bahrain, Thailand, Uruguay, Denmark, and Singapore.
If you don't get a notification, you will have to log in to the HiCare app and head over to the update menu to pull the new firmware manually.
If you happen to live in any other country and have already got EMUI 9.1 on your Mate 20 X, let us know by dropping a comment below.
Thanks for the tip, Fandroid!

Can anyone in US detail how you got your update... I am in the US and have not gotten it via HiCare or Settings. I can see it on Firmware Finder and see that it is approved, but HiCare says I'm up to date with version 126.96.36.199
