Huawei Mate 20 Lite was in the beta phase for the latest two and half months. Now, the company has finally started rolling out the stable EMUI 12 update for the Mate 20 Lite users in the European market.
The update can be downloaded as an OTA update. The size of the update is 326MB. If you don’t have the EMUI 12 Beta pre-installed, the update file should be larger accordingly. A download via WLAN is recommended due to the data size if you do not have enough data volume.
