Google recently released the latest iteration of its mobile operating system, Android 9.0 Pie. The operating system made its debut on Google’s own Pixel devices and was soon followed by the Essential PH-1. A new report suggests, Huawei will showcase EMUI 9.0 based on Google’s Android 9.0 Pie at IFA 2018.
According to the report from MyBroadband, Huawei will release EMUI 9 at IFA 2018, which will start rolling out to its flagship devices, the P20, P20 Pro, and P20 Lite by the end of September. Additionally, the report further states that the company is working on a stable and powerful software, which the devices will receive after the EMUI 9 update.
Huawei hasn’t officially confirmed which of their devices will receive Android 9.0 Pie.
