Huawei’s EMUI 9 based on Android Pie has been available as a beta for a while. Now a stable update has begun rolling out to some devices.
If you own the Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, P20, or P20 Pro and reside in Europe, you should check your phone as the update is already being pushed to these devices. The update is also rolling out to the Honor View 10, Honor 10, and Honor Play. There is even a report that the Honor View 10 is receiving the update in India.
EMUI 9.0 not only brings Android 9 Pie but also brings some new features. There is a new gesture navigation and also HiVision which is just like Google Lens but with some neat tricks of its own such as calorie identification in foods. The overall UI has also changed, system response speed is said to have increased by 25.8%, and there is now support for multiple back ups to various storage devices.
The rollout is gradual and may take a few days before it hits your device.
