Huawei’s sub-brand is rolling out a new software update for the Honor Play smartphone. This OTA update introduces a couple of new features, fixes issues, and brings in the latest security patch.

The software update being rolled out is around 770MB in size, AndroidSoul reports, so it is recommended you have a strong Wi-Fi connection for the update process. Honor also recommends the device’s battery to be above 50 percent, and enough storage space before initiating the update process.

One interesting addition to the Honor Play smartphone via this update is support for AIS. Artificial Image Stabilization is something you find on smartphones like the Huawei P20 Pro, and is said to be better than EIS. This feature is handy when clicking photos or shooting videos on the move.

The smartphone comes with GPU Turbo tech to enhance the overall gaming experience. But some users reported bugs in this tech, and this update fixes them. The update also brings in stability improvements to the Swift app, Party mode, and Water Mark features. The smartphone is also updated with the latest Android security patch.
