Huawei has finally started rolling out Android 9.0 Pie-based EMUI 9.0 firmware update to Huawei P10 series across the globe. These include the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus devices.
Recently, Huawei said that it has successfully rolled out EMUI 9 update to at least 80 million Huawei and Honor devices all over the world. But, the Chinese telecom giant was not happy with these figures and promised to include more 20 million users for EMUI 9.0 Pie update so that it can reach a milestone of 100 million devices.
To fulfill its promise, Huawei has started rolling out the Android Pie update to seven more devices. The list includes Huawei Mate 10 series, Mate 9 series, Mate RS, Mate 20 Lite, P20 series, P10 series, and the Nova 3 series.

The EMUI 9.0 is built on top of Android 9 Pie and is being pushed via OTA. It brings the version EMUI 18.104.22.168 for Huawei P10 and P10 Plus and is available to download for users in multiple countries.
As the update is rolling out in a phase-wise manner, it might take a couple of days or even a week to appear on each and every Huawei P10 series device. Users can also manually check for updates from Settings > System > System update > Check for updates.
The Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0 firmware brings several UI tweaks and adds new features including new navigation gestures, Huawei Share, Password Vault, SD card backups, and much more. You can find the list of EMUI 9.0 Features here.
As the situation between the Huawei and US government is not looking good, it’s important to note that this could potentially be that last gull Android release that may Huawei or Honor handsets get for some time. Huawei has already worked on its own operating system called HongMeng which might be rollout to all its devices once it is stable enough.
