Every Huawei smartphone owner is looking forward to EMUI 3.0 which is Huawei’s latest UI available for the most recent Huawei smartphones such as Ascend Mate 7. Huawei has recently published the time schedule for EMUI 3.0 release for other selected smartphones as we covered right here – http://huaweinews.com/2014/09/emui-3-release-schedule/. On that article we have mentioned that Ascend P7 will get EMUI 3.0 update in the form of development firmware on October 20th which is today.

However Huawei has released the development EMUI 3.0 firmwares yesterday for the Chinese variants of Ascend P7 such as P7-L00, P7-L05, P7-L07 and P7-L09. We are little bit disappointed because of the fact that they have missed the update for P7-L10 which is the international version of the phone. There are speculations going on that P7-L10 update will be released sometime today as the day isn’t over yet but there is no guarantee about that.

Please don’t try installing these firmwares on your international P7-L10 because it might brick your device. Most people have imported these Chinese variants such as P7-L00 so if you own one, you can flash EMUI 3.0 today. Also note that you must be running one of firmwares mentioned below on your P7 in order to upgrade to EMUI 3.0.
