Huawei starts rolling out July Android security patch to both variants of Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus in Europe and Asia (VTR-L09/VTR-L29 and VKY-L09/VKY-L29). The security update (patch level July 5, 2018) will improve the system security further.

The OTA update (B367 and B371) weighs around 108MB and as it is rolling out to users incrementally, it will take several days for all Huawei P10 and P10 Plus owners to see it.

If your Huawei P10 or P10 Plus (single SIM or dual SIM or VTR-L09/VTR-L29 and VKY-L09/ VKY-L29) is running on the most recent version of the OS, then check for the OTA update manually by going to Settings > About Phone > System Updates > check for the new firmware. If you cannot wait for the OTA, you can download and install full firmware manually.
