Huawei announces update plans for Android Nougat and EMUI 5.0
However, we now have official information from Huawei, covering which devices will get the sweet taste of Nougat and the refined EMUI experience. After the company introduced beta builds of the EMUI 5.0 for the Huawei Mate 8 and P9 a few months ago, it now confirmed that the two devices will be getting an official stable release in Q1 of next year. A few other Huawei handsets will also be upgraded, a few weeks later.
The full list of devices, confirmed to get Android 7.0 Nougat and EMUI 5.0 is:
- Huawei Mate 8
- Huawei P9
- Huawei P9 Plus
- Huawei P9 lite
- Huawei Nova
- Huawei Nova Plus
We have yet to know for sure if any other older handsets will join them afterwards, but we assume that the list above is just the start and devices like the Huawei P8 will also get some love next year.
