Great News! Huawei and its sub-brand Honor has started rolling out the EMUI 9.1 update for another batch of devices. There are currently 8 devices in the list being upgraded to EMUI 9.1 OS. The rollout comes a month after the Chinese telecom giant released the EMUI 9.1 update to 10 smartphones, which includes the Huawei Mate 10, P20, and Honor 10 series handsets.
The latest devices to get the EMUI 9.1 goodness includes: Honor 9, Honor V9, Huawei P10, P10 Plus, Nova 2s, Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro, and Mate 9 Porsche Design. The update is currently live in China, while it might take time to reach the global handsets.
The new user interface is still based on Android 9 Pie and brings software improvements, bug fixes and GPU Turbo 3.0. That feature boosts the performance of the graphics unit to provide better gaming on the expense of the battery life. It also brings support for 20 more games titles including PUBG Mobile and Fortnite.
EROFS (Extendable Read-Only File System) is another highlight of the EMUI 9.1 skin which increases read speed by 20% and saves about 2GB of system storage. You can also check the complete list of EMUI 9.1 Features here.
EMUI 9.1 update is rolling out via OTA in a phase-wise manner. So, it might take a couple of days to appear on your notification bar. Users can also check update manually via Settings > About Phone > System update > Check for updates. Moreover, the EMUI 9.1 update can also be requested via HiCare app.
