What operating system does the P40 Pro 5G have?
The Huawei P40 series comes with pre-installed Android 10 AOSP (Android Open Source Project) with EMUI 10.1. It sits within Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), an ecosystem for apps which runs the same Android Open Source Project as Google Mobile Services (GMS).
How is Huawei’s operating system different to Google Mobile Services?
Both HMS and GMS are running Android Open Source Project (Android system) and they both support Android apps. However, some Android apps that require Google support may not work properly on the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) platform.
Huawei is working with global app developers to continuously improve the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) platform and offer a premium user experience.
Can I transfer my photos, contacts and calendar to the P40 Pro 5G?
Yes – the Phone Clone app, available on the AppGallery, can be used to migrate most of your data. You can also download this app on iOS and Android.
How can I download apps on the P40 Pro 5G?
You can transfer the apps from your current handset to your new Huawei device, using the Phone Clone app. There are also a large number of popular apps available on Huawei AppGallery, including Depop, TikTok, and Fornite. It also includes download links for apps such as Facebook and WhatsApp. The browser version of YouTube and Gmail can be used instead of the apps.
If you can’t find the app you’re looking for, you’ll most likely be able to download them from a third party app market.
Will my P40 Pro 5G still get security updates?
Huawei will continue to provide security updates to protect your device. The AppGallery features a four-layer detection mechanism to ensure that apps featured on the platform are safe to download and use.
