Update [Sep. 21]: Huawei is rolling out the second Android 9 Pie beta update to the Mate 10. The update installs EMUI and with it, you’ll enjoy new bug fixes and performance improvements compared to the outgoing version [More details].


Huawei started testing Android Pie in China back in early August, but it’s at the IFA 2018 that the Mate 10 got the nod to try the OS. As expected, EMUI 9 is on top of stock Android, but you still get to enjoy the best of Pie such as digital wellbeing, app slices, app actions, gestures for navigation, a changed user interface, and plenty of other tweaks under the hood.

Looking at what happened with Oreo, where the company started testing in October and released the stable version in December, we can expect the stable version of Android Pie to arrive on the Mate 1o beginning November 2018. But of course, you can never be sure with software update timelines so take this one with a grain of salt.
