Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has started upgrading three of its smartphones i.e. the Honor 10, Honor Play and Honor View 10 to Android 9.0 Pie based EMUI 9.0 in India as promised. The EMUI 9 made its first appearance at the IFA 2018 last year and since the company has started rolling out this major update to its latest flagship devices followed by mid-rangers. Currently, the update is specific to India but might soon reach to other global countries in the coming days.
The latest EMUI 9.0 update for Honor 10, Honor Play, and Honor View 10 bring gestures-based navigation features and a new UI (user-interface). GPU Turbo 2.0 is another cool feature introduced to this update bringing on-demand performance boost thereby reducing power consumption when using power-intensive applications.
