Honor 9 Android Pie update

  • EMUI 9.0 beta now available
  • Stable Android Pie update could be out in January 2019

Huawei started testing Android 9 Pie beta on the Honor 9 in October 2018, way earlier than what most of us expected. However, this update was meant for the Chinese market and while back then the company didn’t say whether other regions will also be invited to join the EMUI 9 beta program, the update seems to have opened up to more markets. You must be using at least version to qualify for this update.

The Honor 9 update to Android 9 Pie is its second major OS upgrade after Oreo, which was released to the device in April 2018.
