After the Mate 20 series announcement, Huawei’s last year flagship, the Mate 10 is getting an Android 9 Pie update. More than two months have passed since Google released Android 9 Pie for the Google Pixel/XL and the Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL. Official Android Pie updates by device makers have been few and far between, mostly dealing with Essential and OnePlus. And then we have seen Sony Xperia XZ2/XZ2 Compact and Xiaomi roll out Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 update for the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.
The Android Pie-based EMUI 9 is now rolling out for Huawei Mate 10 devices in Europe, but other regions are likely to follow soon. The Android Pie update size is huge, it is approx 4GB, which is typical of major Huawei OTA firmware updates but which remains unusually large in the broader Android world. So make sure you have enough free storage on your phone.
The 9 phone models that will receive the EMUI 9.0 update include:
- Huawei Mate 10
- Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Edition
- Huawei Mate 10 Pro
- Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design
- Huawei P20
- Huawei P20 Pro
- Honor 10
- Honor V10
- Honor Play
