It also brings the system stability and improves performance by preventing or eliminating all the possible security vulnerabilities.
Now, talking about the Huawei devices, the OEM provides CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures), and similarly, the company has recently announced that the July 2020 Android security will be rolled out soon.
