Unlocked Huawei Mate 9 receiving Android 8.0 Oreo in the US

Unlocked Huawei Mate 9 receiving Android 8.0 Oreo in the US
Huawei kicked off the Android 8.0 Oreo roll-out for the Mate 9 last month, but the update wasn't released in the United States. If you happen to rock an unlocked Huawei Mate 9 and live in the US, you'll soon be able to update your phablet to Android 8.0 Oreo.

The update is now being rolled out to Huawei Mate 9 units with model numbers MHA-L29 and L09, which support GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile. There's little information on the contents of the update, but you'll get EMUI 8.0 for sure along with most of the new Android Oreo features and improvements.

Since this is a staged roll-out, not all Huawei Mate 9 units will receive the update at the same time, so you'll want to wait a few days if it's now showing up on your phone right away.

So, there you have it, folks. One year after the Mate 9 made its debut in the US, Huawei is updating the smartphone to the latest version of Android, which isn't bad at all considering many companies (I'm looking at you Samsung) are still struggling to update their last year flagships.
