About a month ago, Huawei announced that it would release an update for the Mate 10 that would bring lots of new features such as 960fps slow-motion recording. That update has arrived as EMUI 8.1.

The Mate 10 series launched towards the end of last year with EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo. Following its release, Huawei has regularly pushed out updates that brought new features to the device.

Back in March, Huawei pushed out an update that brought Face Unlock to the Mate 10. Then in May, another update brought the Huawei P20 Pro’s “long exposure without tripod” feature. June’s update came bundled with GPU Turbo for improved gaming and all-things graphics-related.

With the Mate 10, Huawei has shown that you do not have to buy the latest flagship to enjoy new features.

The latest update not only brings 720p 960fps slow-motion recording but also brings AI photography, 3D portrait light effect, and a smart gallery.

For AI photography, the update increases the number of scene recognition modes from 13 categories to 19 categories and total scene/o recognition to over 500. Now, the camera(s) can identify more scenes and objects.

Owners of the Mate 10 can grab the update by heading to the Huawei Club app and register as an early adopter under Member Services. The update should then be pushed out to your device when done registering.
