Huawei Mate 9 to receive Android 8.0 Oreo update soon

News about Huawei working on new Android updates for the Mate 9 dates from April. Although Google didn't even launch Oreo, the Chinese company was already rumored to test early builds of the new OS for its last year flagship.

More recently, the smartphone was spotted at Geekbench with Android 8.0 Oreo on board. Huawei MHA aka Mate 9 was Huawei's first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat, just like the Mate 10 is expected to be the first to come with Oreo.

Even though we don't have a specific timeframe for the release of the update, the recent listing of the Mate 9 at Geekbench suggests it won't be long until Android Oreo will arrive on Huawei's high-end smartphone.

Huawei has already confirmed its next flagship will be revealed on October 16, but the phone isn't likely to hit the shelves until the end of the month. Huawei will probably want to release Android 8.0 Oreo for Mate 9 only after the Mate 10 makes its debut on the market.
