Honor 10 Lite is the latest in the growing list of smartphones to receive the February 2020 security patch. The security patch is bringing more fixes for some of the known vulnerabilities. The smartphone has now started receiving a new EMUI update which brings February security patch. However, most users will be pleased by the support for VoWiFi calling features. Airtel was the first to enable VoWiFi calling feature for its subscribers in India.
It was immediately followed by Reliance Jio, which also supports VoWiFi features. With Voice over WiFi or VoWiFi, smartphones users can make normal voice calls using their WiFi network as opposed to standard airwaves. The WiFi calling feature is primarily seen as a way to improve indoor calling experience. With networks struggling indoors, the VoWiFi feature is seen as a way to bridge the gap. The release of this update for Honor 10 Lite was first detailed by an Honor Club user and reported by Huawei Central.
While the VoWiFi feature is the big addition to Honor 10 Lite, the update also brings security fixes. The February 2020 security patch brings fixes for two critical and 20 high levels of Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE). One of the critical vulnerabilities known as CVE-2020-0022 or BlueFrag has also been fixed with this update. This vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute silent code on the device.
