Huawei launching EMUI 9.0 based on Android Pie at IFA 2018, Updates to start in September

Android Pie has been made official just a couple of weeks ago and it is only available on smartphones from the Google Pixel line-up and the Essential Phone PH-1. But Huawei will soon bring the new major version of the operating system on its devices. According to a company’s official, the new custom user interface EMUI 9.0 based on Android Pie will be officially announced at IFA 2018 in Berlin, one of the most important hi-tech related trade shows of the year which will take place on August 31.

The company has also confirmed that the first updates to the new version will start to roll out right after the announcement. We don’t know if the company will start updating its handset from the day after, but surely the update will start coming in September. If so, Huawei will be among the first companies to update its main handsets to Android Pie. The first smartphones to receive the update will be the ones from the Huawei P20 series. Together with them, the Mate 10 series (including the RS Porsche Design edition) will receive the update notification as well, but it is not said that it will roll out at the same time.

 

 

It is speculated that the Mate 9 series may join too. There is no official confirmation regarding all the other devices from the Chinese company. But we presume that some of the most important flagships from the Honor sub-brand will be updated as well, such as Honor 10 and V10. Just to remind you, it has been previously confirmed that the company is working on testing the update even for these two devices. EMUI 9.0 based on Android Pie will surely bring several improvements, just like every major Android version. Among these ones, there will surely be a better battery management.
