We recently acquired a Huawei P9 for testing purposes, with this device not having been updated in a very long time, and thus coming with EMUI4.1 out of the box. However, once a SIM card is inserted in the device, the updater will notify users of the various updates available, with the first one optimizing several settings, such as app icons and shortcuts, as well as fixing some important features such as the Calendar or some UI issues.

While we are fully aware we are very late with these updates, as the majority of users have likely already received them, we’ve decided nonetheless to publish these articles, as they might be useful in the future, such as for, for example, when comparing the UI between different EMUI versions.

This update changes the version from EVA-L09C02B127 to EVA-L09C02B137 and is a surprisingly large 760 MB in size.

The patch notes read as following:

This update adds an email printing feature and optimizes several functions and the UI display.
