A special treat is on its way for all Huawei P20, P20 Pro, Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Honor Play, Honor View 10, and Honor 10 users before the year ends.
Huawei is now rolling out EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9.0 Pie for all these phones, after making it available in beta for a while.
If you own one of these seven devices, the EMUI 9 based Android Pie update should arrive on your phone via an over-the-air (OTA) update. The roll-out could be gradual so it may be a while before you see the update on your phone.
Huawei took to Twitter to announce that the EMUI 9 based Android Pie update is rolling out for the above mentioned devices.
This comes after the EMUI 9 based Android Pie update was rolled out to Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro users in China earlier this month. The new update is a global release, which means that it may be a while before all users see the update notifications.
We recommend you keep checking manually by heading over to the Settings Menu. It is advisable to update your device under a strong Wi-Fi connection and at least 80 percent battery life, or while the phone is on charge.
EMUI 9 based on Android Pie brings along a new UI, gesture-based navigation, and HiVision visual search that allows you to do image searches just like Google Lens.
Huawei claims that HiVision recognizes landmarks from 15 countries as well as over 10 million famous artworks. It also recognises a great range of food items and can provide a calorie estimate for users who are conscious of their calorie intake.
It also brings a new feature called HiTouch that enables users to search for something online by long pressing two fingers on an image.
