Huawei has been very busy releasing EMUI 3.0 update for their latest smartphones for the past few days and finally EMUI 3.0 update is available for the China Unicom Honor 3C H30-U10 starting today. This new firmware is marked as a development firmware and as you might know, you could easily get it installed on your international Honor 3C H30-U10 if you wish.
