Huawei Mate 9 to get Android 8.0 Oreo OS update soon


Well, Huawei Mate 9 has been just been spotted on Geekbench running Android Oreo 8.0. And this could only mean one thing. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer is already testing the OS and it could be that the company has pretty much conducted the necessary tests and will roll out the update to the users.

Considering the Geekbench listing and some reports, it has been suggested that Huawei might roll out the Android 8.0 Oreo update to its users in the coming months. The Mate 9 currently runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box with Emotion UI 5.0 skin on top. But if the reports are true then the Mate will be upgraded to the latest iteration of Android. Apart from the Mate 9, Huawei is also expected to roll out the Oreo update for several other smartphones like Huawei P10, Honor 8 Pro, Honor 8, Honor 8 Lite and Honor 6X.

Meanwhile, if the update is indeed rolled out then Huawei Mate 9 users will be able to experience Android Oreo and its new features hands on. Mate 9 smartphone users will basically able to use features like Picture-in-Picture mode, Notification Dots, Android Instant Apps, Longer battery life, Notification channel, and more.

In any case, now that the smartphone has been spotted on Geekbench running the new version of Android it might be not too long before the update is released. However, the update should come as an OTA update and the rollout will happen phases. Not everyone will get the update at the same time.

That being said, Huawei Mate 9 users should keep a close eye on the notification tab going forward. Huawei might be among the first manufacturers to roll out the update to its smartphones.
