Chinese Huawei Mate 9 finally gets Oreo-powered EMUI 8.0 update

科技动态 2017-12-07

Beta testing for the Android 8.0 Oreo update to the Huawei Mate 9 ended in early November . Now, less than a month later, it looks like the official update is getting ready to roll out to Chinese versions of the handset .

While an OTA update is still nowhere to be seen, owners of certain Chinese Mate 9 variants can manually upgrade to EMUI 8.0 by requesting it via the Huawei Mobile Services app. Here are the currently supported models:

  • Mate 9 MHA-AL00
  • Mate 9 Full Netcom Version MHA-TL00
  • Mate 9 Pro Full Netcom Version LON-AL00
  • Mate 9 Porsche Edition

Once in the app, you can follow a series of on-screen prompts which will guide you through the upgrade process. The upgrade does not require a factory reset.

Android 8.0 Oreo brings plenty of new features to the Mate 9, including picture-in-picture (PIP), battery optimization, updated design elements, and a stronger integration of Google Assistant.

It’s also worth noting that the latest version of EMUI includes a number of useful tweaks that go beyond Google’s Oreo upgrade including a desktop UI mode, Huawei-specific AI improvements, and dynamic wallpapers — just to name a few.

What about owners of the global variant? For now they are stuck playing the waiting game. Still, this is a positive sign and hopefully means that the wait for the Oreo-powered EMUI 8.0 is finally coming to an end.
