Earlier this month, we reported that at least 14 Huawei and Honor mobiles have been made eligible to EMUI 9.1 beta update. Today, Huawei surprises with the rollout of EMUI 9.0 stable update to even more company devices.
As per reports, the global users of Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 9 series have been started receiving the EMUI 9 update. This is really surprising as the company is pushing the latest Android 9.0 Pie update to Mate 9 which is already two-years-old as of now.
Alongside the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 9 series, users of Mate RS, Mate 20 Lite, P20, P10, and the Nova 3 series also getting the taste of Google’s latest mobile operating system.
This is interesting to see Huawei providing Android updates to its devices even though the company lost its Android license last month (temporary received 3-months license). Huawei still has to announce whether their devices are eligible for Android Q update or not after the Google-ban on Huawei. However, Android Q Beta is available to download for the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, shortly after being pulled out of the Android Q beta program.
Huawei through a tweet said it has already upgraded over 80 million Huawei and Honor phones to EMUI 9.0 globally. It also adds that the figure will cross 100 million by the end of this month.
