March 11, 2019: A new EMUI update is available for owners of the Honor 9 in China using models STF-AL00, STF-AL10, and STF-TL10. The EMUI 18.104.22.168 update comes with a new Android security patch for March 2019, optimizes camera performance and stability to improve its launch and photo taking speeds, and updates the pre-downloaded songs to better cater to your preference.
Of course, the rollout is staggered, meaning some users will receive the download notification ahead of others. Also, Honor says your device needs at least version 22.214.171.124 of EMUI in order to receive the OTA update to EMUI 126.96.36.199.
January 22, 2019: A new update is available for non-beta testers of the Honor 9 that installs EMUI 188.8.131.529, bringing along the latest Android security patch for January 2019 alongside the usual bug fixes and performance optimizations.
The update is available over the air and so far it has been spotted in China, but global variants should get the OTA pretty soon.

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 188.8.131.526 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.
