However, more number of Huawei smartphones will receive Android Oreo update along the line. During the Mate 10 series unveiling event, the Chinese manufacturer assured that the Mate 9 and P10 series will also be updated to Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 in the coming months. First it will be rolled out to Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro. Then Huawei P10 and P10 Plus will get the taste of Oreo.

As for the timeline, Huawei will start pushing out the Android Oreo update to Mate 9 series within 3 or 4 weeks after the Mate 10 is shipped. The company didn't specify any timeline for the P10 series tough, it just said the update will be rolled out "in the near future".

While the EMUI 8.0 wouldn't bring many visual changes to the UI, there will be many under the hood improvements. As per the claim made by Huawei, the performance has been enhanced by 12 percent.

Sadly though, it has been clearly stated that Mate 9's camera wouldn't get the real-time smart scene recognition features. Looking at the bright side, the update will add several other AI features.
