A number of HUAWEI HK users just had their smartphones bricked after they were automatically updated overnight. So hold off automatic updates for now!
HUAWEI HK Smartphones Bricked After Automatic Updates
HUAWEI hasn’t had a moment of respite since the Trump ban kicked off. The recent great news about critical technical memberships being restored was marred by reports that HUAWEI HK was facing a crisis involving automatic updates.
According to Apple Daily, the HUAWEI HK service centre in Mong Kok was flooded with users waiting to have their bricked smartphones repaired. They all said that their smartphones failed to work after being updated the night before.
According to interviews conducted by HK reporters, these users left their HUAWEI smartphones to update and/or charge overnight. When they woke up in the morning, their devices either displayed a white System Recovery Mode screen (if they were left charging), or powered off after running out of battery power.
A Mr. Lam said that his HUAWEI smartphone suddenly displayed a “white screen” while charging on the night of 28 May. The HUAWEI HK service centre repaired it in two hours, but it was wiped clean and he lost all of his data, including his photos.

Another user, Ms. Kwok said that she updated her HUAWEI Mate 10 on the night of 28 May as well, but found it stuck in the middle of that update. She left it running but it ran out of power overnight. When she recharged and booted it up, it entered into the white System Recovery Mode screen.
Mr. Lau, who uses a HUAWEI Mate 9 was also affected by the same problem, telling Apple Daily that “When I turned it on this morning, it showed that it was upgrading the operating system automatically, together with a music app. Then it stopped in the middle of the update, and could not be turned off.“
An Eastern Network reporter who called the HUAWEI HK customer service hotline was informed that customers had informed them that the system update caused their smartphones to fail. However, they do not yet know the reasons for the problem.
The HUAWEI HK service centre in Mong Kok said that most of these smartphones failed to complete the upgrade process, but the reasons were not clear. They advised those who came with this problem to factory-reset their devices – a process that takes an hour or two.

It would make their smartphones usable again, but they would lose all of the data stored in their phones – contacts, emails, photos, videos, music and so on.
Some users, like a Ms. Wong, could not accept that solution because she had “many of her late mother’s photos and videos” in her phone. Eventually, the HUAWEI HK service centre agreed to help her copy out her data, but it would take them several days to do it.

Huawei EMUI 9.0 For Android 9 Pie
EMUI 9.0 is Huawei’s latest operating system based on Android 9 Pie. Conceptually, it adopts a nature-inspired design that Huawei promises will transform the experience of their phones through sight, sound and touch.
Huawei EMUI 9.0 Key Features
EMUI 9.0 applies scenes of nature in everything from color selections to default caller portraits, using a combination of hillside, ice and rocks images.
It also implements a Smart Color Picker technology to ensure that even users who are not apt at choosing get the best colours to scroll through.
The AI interface, screensaver, and UI elements have been improved to deliver a more comfortable viewing experience. Huawei, for instance, reorganised various UI elements to minimise stress on the eyes – lights and shadow are replicated within this design such as the clock hands casting shadows on the clock face.
Photography and music have always been one of the biggest selling points of smartphones. With EMUI 9.0, users will be able to immerse themselves in a more natural experience with real-world sounds.
Ambient nature sounds like birds chirping and flowing water as ringtones and alarm alerts are among the many soothing sounds that will greet Huawei users.
EMUI 9.0 comes with a new mode of navigation for its users. Gestures will replace the traditional navigation bar without the phone losing any of its functionalities. You’ll be able to ::
swipe inwards from the edge of the screen to go back
swipe up from bottom to go to the Home Page
swipe up from the bottom and pause to access the multitasking interface
Especially for mobile gamers, EMUI 9.0 is able to reduce the touch-response delay by 36% when compared to EMUI 8.1 through its GPU Turbo 2.0 technology.
