Huawei Mate 9 with EMUI 5.1 spotted online

Huawei Mate 9 Android flagship might get EMUI 5.1 after all
Huawei Mate 9
Although Huawei recently claimed that its handsets currently running EMUI 5.0 would not get EMUI 5.1, an updated Mate 9 has been spotted in the wild by a member of the well-known XDA Developers community.

A recent statement by Huawei disappointed most of its customers who are currently using EMUI 5.0-driven handsets. Although the EMUI 5.0 custom UI is applied on top of Android 7.0 Nougat and the Mate 9 phablet has high-end hardware specs, this handset was also supposed not to get EMUI 5.1. Fortunately, it looks like the improved interface might soon hit this flagship after all.

According to XDA community senior member duraaraa, there are already Huawei Mate 9 units in the wild that run a firmware build that includes EMUI 5.1. The XDA website also reveals that duraaraa claims that this firmware runs without problems and it looks "very similar to P10's firmware at this point." At last, Google Play Services seem to be included out of the box as well - something not happening with the normal Chinese version of the firmware.

Since nothing is official yet, all the above should be taken with a spoon of salt for the time being. We will get back to this topic as soon as something new surfaces, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
