Update | The Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, P20, and P20 Pro finally start receiving the stable Pie update
Update: Honor 10 users in Europe are confirming receipt of the EMUI 9 update. The OTA weighs in at a heavy 4 GB download, which makes it one of the biggest Pie updates we've seen so far. Users of the Mate 10 Pro in the US, however, are still yet to receive the OTA.
Back in November, a rumor surfaced claiming that Huawei was set to send out the Pie update to its flagships on a certain date. Said date came and went without users of the devices receiving the update, though, which must have been disappointing considering how much buzz was created. Most of those users can finally rest easy, however, as the company has actually begun the stable Android Pie update’s rollout.
The update doubles up as an EMUI 9.0 update and brings a slew of features including Gesture Navigation, HiVision (Huawei’s take on Google’s AR Lens), and HiTouch a feature similar to HiVision.
The update is currently being sent out to the Huawei flagships only. That is, the Mate 10 and P20 phones. Honor flagships will have to wait a while longer, although we expect them to get theirs within the next few weeks. Devices like the Nova phones will likely get theirs just after, with mid-rangers like the Honor 8X expected to come after that.
