Huawei P20 and Mate 10 series to receive Android 9.0 Pie soon
Huawei kicked off Android 9.0 Pie beta programs for no less than 9 smartphones last month. The handset maker confirmed the first device to receive the update will be the P20 series, followed by Mate 10.

Huawei P20 Wi-Fi Alliance certification

True to its promise, Huawei is now gearing up for a global Android 9.0 Pie rollout, which might start as soon as this week. Several Huawei smartphones running the new version of Android have been recently certified at Wi-Fi Alliance, which suggests the update is ready to be deployed.

The following smartphones have been spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance: Huawei P20, Huawei P20 Pro, Huawei Mate 10, and Huawei Mate 10 Pro. Surprisingly, two phones from the P20 and Mate 10 series are missing from the list – the P20 Lite and Mate 10 Lite, but they might be included in the second wave of devices to be updated to Android 9.0 Pie.

Besides the handsets mentioned above, Huawei plans to deliver Android 9.0 Pie updates to the Mate 10 Porsche Design, Mate RS Porsche Design, Honor 10, Honor V10, and Honor Play.

Although Huawei may start pushing out the Android 9.0 Pie update to the P20 and Mate 10 series very soon, it might take a while for the update to land on all devices across the world, so don't get too excited yet if you own one of these flagships.

All versions of the Mate 10 Pro are on Oreo, unless you're taking part of the beta program. But yes, it sucks that the North American variant of the Mate 10 Pro is behind in security updates.

I agree. No excuses whatsoever. If a small company like Essential can keep their product updated, why can't they do the same?

Essential only has one product to update, and they haven't been making anymore. Real easy to do it when you only have one product to focus on.

I don't care if it's one phone or many. The point is that they are able to keep their device updated on DAY ONE.

What you care or don’t care about is immaterial. The least they can do with their one and only phone is keep it updated, as they don’t have to expend any resources on anything else.

You don't know that. But don't let the facts get in the way of you trying to push that goalpost back further.

I know that they aren't working on anymore smartphones, as that's a documented fact. But don't let the facts get in the way of YOU moving the goalpost back further.

Can't wait for Android Pie to hit my Mate 10 Pro. Hopefully, this will bring the current security patch with it.

Meanwhile the Essential phone is already on Pie with the September security update. What is Huawei and other OEMs excuse for not at least providing the monthly security updates?

Not having just one phone in the market.

Exactly. Essential only has one phone to update, with nothing else on the horizon. The least that they can do is keep it updated.

You just can't stop pushing that goalpost back can you?

You just can’t stop changing the facts to suit your false narrative, can you?
