Huawei Mate 9 ready to receive Android 8.0 Oreo update in China

Huawei Mate 9 ready to receive Android 8.0 Oreo update in China

The great thing about EMUI 8.0 is that it is based on Android 8.0 Oreo. Though it is a tedious work, but worth doing it as the update brings lots of new features and functionalities. The Huawei Mate 9 MHA-AL00, Mate 9 Porsche Edition, Mate 9 Pro Full Netcom Version LON-AL00, and Mate 9 Full Netcom Version MHA-TL00 are supported. It's not an open beta at the moment - Huawei says it's capping the number of enrollees, and that it's a first-come, first serve deal - but if you manage to get in, you'll get an over-the-air update to EMUI 8.0 version B323.

Since the Chinese ROM is slightly different from the worldwide ROM (lack of Google apps and more) for these phones, it might take a few more days for the global version to get the Android 8.0 update.

The EMUI 8.0 update for the Huawei P10 and Honor V9 is now in Beta. Still, Huawei's latest flagship smartphone Mate 10 and Mate 10 have not yet gotten out of the Beta test. The company is only looking for 250 volunteers, so if you want to test the update, you have to be quick.

The Huawei Mate 9 sports a 5.9-inch full HD (1080p) display. The application also includes feedback option for any bugs or issues that you might encounter while testing the Oreo beta. If you don't have the same version, you are out of luck.

Some important Android 8.0 Oreo features that can be expected include better Google Assistant integration, picture-in-picture (PIP), updated design elements, and battery optimization.
