March 05, 2019: Huawei is rolling out a new EMUI 9 update to the Nova 3e as version 126.96.36.199. The release notes say that you must be using version 188.8.131.52 in order to receive the latest OTA, so be sure to upgrade to the most immediate previous version.
As per the changelog, the update optimizes mistouch prevention, fixes general bugs and performs system-wide enhancements.
February 26, 2019: A stable EMUI 184.108.40.206 update is now rolling out to the Huawei Nova 3e in China with model numbers ANE-AL00 and ANE-TL00. The airborne update installs a new security patch for January 2019, fixes bugs and performs various system optimizations.
Having just begun rolling out, it may take several days before all units receive this download.
January 21, 2019: Huawei opened the beta registration into Android 9 Pie for users of the Nova 3e and today, those whose application was successful can download and install a beta version of EMUI 220.127.116.11 to the device. This update installs an unfinished version of Pie to the Nova 3e, so be sure that you really want in.
Your Nova 3e must be running EMUI 18.104.22.168 in order to qualify, so make sure you have updated the phone to the proper version. Also, the update is currently limited, so don’t be surprised if your model or region isn’t invited. On the brighter side, a stable version should be released towards the end of Q1 or in early Q2 2019.

Huawei has this habit of releasing the same phone with different names in various markets across the globe. For instance, the phone that many know as the Huawei P20 Lite is known to those in Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, China and a few other markets as the Huawei Nova 3e.
In fact, Malaysia has seen just about every other Huawei Nova device, a family of phones that started out in 2016, apparently following the failed deal between Google and Huawei with respect to the OG Pixel phones. While we already have a dedicated page for Huawei P20 Lite software update news, this page is specific to the Huawei Nova 3e, giving you all there is to know regarding the phone’s software update news, release date, download links (where possible) and their changelogs.
