To remind you, the Honor 9 Lite was announced back in 2017 running on Android 8.0 Oreo while the Honor Play was launched in 2018 with Android 8.1 Oreo. Both the devices have been upgraded to the latest Android 9 Pie-based EMUI 9.1 OS earlier this year. Honor 9 Lite being a mid-range smartphone and that too an older one, it will be a really tough job for Huawei to push the latest Android 10 update.
