Huawei’s Mate 9 just received the update towards Android 9.0 “Pie”/EMUI9.0, bringing to the device the latest version of Android. A few days ago, we had published an article mentioning this, so it’s good to see that Huawei did indeed deliver as expected.

Curiously, this version of EMUI9.0 is labelled as “EMUI9.0.1” instead of “EMUI9.0”. This is the first time that we come across this version of Huawei’s Android skin on one of our devices.

This new patch changes the version from MHA-L09 to MHA-L09 and is 3.44 GB in size.

The patch notes read as following:

EMUI 9.0 is here. Built on Android Pie, EMUI 9.0 preserves the essential Android flavour, with an added dash of nature and simplicity. This new version contains wonderful new technology and streamlined processes, as well as a friendlier, more beautiful design.

We wouldn’t be more proud to put EMUI 9.0 in your palm, and we hope it brings you joy and delight.
