Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has started rolling out a new software update in India for its flagship device, the Mate 20 Pro. The update brings two important changes, with the first one being February 2019 security patch, and the second being support for ViLTE. For those unaware, ViLTE means video calling over LTE, where users can make video calls to other users without relying on third-party apps.
The update is being rolled out as an OTA (over the air), and you can head over to Settings > Software Update and manually check for update if you haven’t received a notification yet. The update build is about 158MB in size. As this is being a phased rollout, it may take a couple of weeks for the update to reach your device.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is priced at Rs 69,990 and is available to purchase online via Amazon India. As a limited time deal, the company is also offering the wireless charger for free, which is otherwise priced at Rs 3,999. Unlike other wireless chargers, this one supports charging at 15W, which is a bit faster, and supports Qi standard too.
