Honor 9 Lite update: EMUI 9.1.0.113 available in China with camera and Bluetooth improvements

Latest news

June 07, 2019: The Honor 9 Lite is receiving a new EMUI 9.1.0.113 update in China with improvements to the camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and bug fixes.

You must be coming from EMUI 9.1.0.111 in order to receive the latest OTA update. Once installed, your Honor 9 Lite should enjoy improved camera performance and stability for better photo quality in certain scenarios, fixes for issues of static when Bluetooth headphones are used in certain scenarios and WeChat payments occasionally cannot be used when App twin is enabled.

The update also improves system performance and stability, so be sure to grab it once the OTA arrives.

March 15, 2019: A new update is seeding in China for the Honor 9 Lite with model numbers LLD-AL00, LLD-AL10, and LLD-TL10. The update is arriving as EMUI 8.0.0.186, bringing along a new Android security patch for February 2019 alongside other bugs fixes and improvements.

The OTA update will take time to reach all units and even maybe even longer to arrive in other markets across the globe.

If you are using this same variant but with EMUI 9.0 beta on board, a new update to EMUI 9.0.1.103 is available too. However, you must have at least EMUI 9.0.1.42 or 8.0.0.183/186 installed on your device in order to qualify for the latest Pie beta.

Honor 9 Lite second Pie beta update

February 19, 2019: The Honor 9 Lite is receiving a new update in India. The update tags along a number of goodies, beginning with a new security patch for January 2019. The update also adds support for ViLTE, a feature that lets Indian users of the device make video calls over LTE. This can be done natively from the device’s phone app.

The new Honor 9 Lite update also introduces gestures for navigation in line with the upcoming Android 9 Pie. You can find this feature under Settings – System – System Navigation. The update weighs 368MB and comes with two versions depending on your current version.

If your current EMUI version is  8.0.0.192, the incoming update has version 8.0.0.194. For those currently on build 8.0.0.200, watch out for an OTA with version 8.0.0.202.

Honor 9 Lite Android 9 Pie update

  • Android 9 Pie update expected in Q2 2019
  • Beta update available in China

The Honor 9 Lite (review) is one of the first budget phones to launch with Android 8.0 Oreo preinstalled. We don’t expect an update to Android 8.1, but we do know EMUI 9.0 is coming based on Android 9 Pie. In fact, those in China can already download and install the beta version, but only if you registered for the program.

Given that it runs Oreo out of the box, the Honor 9 Lite has Google’s Project Treble on board. It is possible this feature is behind this hurried rollout of the OS, which is the exact thing it was meant for.
