Honor Play Android 9 Pie update

  • Beta available

Update [September 21]: Last week, Honor released an update in Europe that we mistakenly thought was a stable version, but it wasn’t. The company is pushing a second beta update to the device in China and with it comes software version EMUI based on Android 9 Pie.


Update [September 14]: To our surprise, the Honor team has released the Android Pie update for their Honor Play. That’s really quick from the Honor team!

The Honor Play Pie update comes as software version (or B302) and weighs 4.05GB. The update seems to be available for the C432 custom version of the device. Honor Play’s Android 9 update was under testing for some time, BTW.
