Earlier this month, Huawei the Chinese smartphone manufacturer launched the P8 Lite (2017) running Android 7.0 Nougat-based EMUI 5.0 out of the box and now it seems like the company s bringing some more good news for the consumers. According to the latest report, the company's roadmap for releasing EMUI 5.0 to its other mid-range smartphones has been leaked.
Te devices which are expected to receive the update are Huawei's Honor 6X, Honor Note 8, Huawei Nova, and Huawei G9 Plus. These smartphones will be receiving the update throughout this year.
Well, according to the leaked table on Weibo, the first mid-ranger to get the update will be the Huawei Nova smartphone in March, followed by the Honor Note 8 and Huawei G9 Plus in April. In addition, the Honor 6X and the MediaPad M3 tablet will be receiving the Android Nougat-based EUI 5.0 update sometime in May.
Just to recall, last year during the launch of Huawei's flagship Mate 9, the company had officially announced its roadmap for Android 7.0 Nougat roll out. The announcement talked about smartphones such as the Huawei Mate 8, Huawei P9, Huawei P9 Plus, Huawei P9 Lite, Huawei Nova, and Huawei Nova Plus and that these would receive the Nougat update sometime in the first quarter 2017.
However, the leak now confirms Huawei Nova's timeline and we could expect the same to follow with other Huawei devices.
