March 15, 2019: Huawei Honor V9 is receiving a new update in China as EMUI 9.0.1.160. The update, which is available for models DUK-AL20 and DUK-TL30, brings optimized camera performance and stability for improved launch and photo taking speeds, updates the pre-downloaded songs to better cater to your preference, fixes an issue where the navigation bar cannot be displayed in Smart cover mode and installs March 2019 security patch.

It’s available over the air, meaning some units will receive the download notification ahead of others.

January 21, 2019: Huawei has a new software update to the Honor V9 with EMUI 9.0.1.150. The update is targeting the Chinese variant and besides installing a new Android security patch for January 2019, the V9 also adds VoLTE support, fixes the problem of blackening the lower boundary of a special scene, and fixes an issue where a particular scenario could not be applied separately.

On top of the above, the V9 is also getting support for new full-screen gestures for better navigation as well as system optimizations. It’s an OTA update that is still limited to the Chinese market, so it should take a few days before all units get the download notification.

For those who are not taking part in the beta program, a new EMUI 8.0.0.359 update is rolling out with the latest Android security patch for January 2019 alongside the usual system enhancements and optimizations.

Honor V9 Android 9 Pie update

  • Android 9 Pie beta now available
  • Stable version expected in late 2018 or early 2019

Huawei Honor V9 has multiple variants, two of which are now receiving an update to EMUI 9.0 beta based on Android 9 Pie. The update is only available to those who submitted their interest when the company announced the program for the device back in October 2018 and is available over the air as EMUI 9.0.1.55. In order to qualify for the OTA update, one must be using at least EMUI 8.0.0.356 on either of models DUK-AL20 or DUK-TL30.

It’s worth noting that the Honor V9 is also known as Honor 8 Pro (DUK-L09) in other markets and while we expect Pie to be released for this device, we still have no news about if and when the beta update will also be released.
