More than two years after its launch, it is nice to see the Chinese manufacturer deploy its latest EMUI 9 update (based on Android Pie) on its devices ( Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro, Mate 9 Porsche Design) as well as the Nova 2s.

How do I update?

You have several options to update your device. The easiest way is of course to wait for the manufacturer to offer it (i.e. in OTA), or to install it manually. As you can imagine, manual installation can be quite complicated for beginners: you need to use an image file (usually provided by the manufacturer) and install it after a few manipulations.

Are you expecting the Android Pie update on your Huawei Mate 9?

    Great! I always had a question soon after I became familiar with Huawei's flagship smartphones, that how's Huawei's software support. I have heard that as far as major software versions are concerned, you definitely get them. And Huawei's smartphones don't slow down.

        That's why I shelved my Mate 9. Also had the 8 and the 2 before it. Since the government tossed Huawei under the bus, I doubt the US version will ever see 9, unless you root, unlock & custom flash.
