There is no official word on the release date yet, we can expect the update won’t take much time before the telecom major releases the stable version of Android Pie to all the carrier-locked Mate 9 and P10 handsets in Australia.
It is a major upgrade brings all the EMUI 9.0 features on top of Google’s Android 9.0 Pie goodness.

A couple of days back, Huawei announced its latest flagship smartphones – the P30 and P30 Pro at a global event in Paris. These are the company’s first devices to run on the latest EMUI 9.1 skin out-of-the-box. The latest Huawei’s custom Android i.e. the EMUI 9.1 comes with GPU Turbo 3.0 with support for more than 19 Android games. GPU Turbo is a hardware-software integrated graphics processing acceleration technology that reconstructs the traditional graphics processing framework at the lower layer system, thus aiming to improve the user experience. So, one can have the best gaming experience on their smartphone. The good thing about this GPU Turbo feature is that the company has not limited it to just flagship smartphones, but several budget devices such as Honor 7X and Honor 9 Lite also received the feature.
