Now that Google’s Android 9 Pie update is out Huawei users are patiently waiting for more details on when they’ll get it. With that in mind, here we’ll go over everything we know about Huawei Android Pie updates and what you can expect. Including Huawei betas and Honor Android 9 updates.
Back in March Google pushed out an Android P Developer Preview to Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL users to start testing it as early as possible. Then, they officially released it to the world in early August as Android 9 Pie.
For now, Android 9 Pie is available for the Pixel, Pixel 2, Pixel XL and Pixel 2 XL. Not to mention a few other devices like the Essential phone and the OnePlus 6. That said, the Huawei update is just around the corner as multiple phones are on the 2nd beta.
And while Huawei wasn’t one of the 11 manufacturers that partnered with Google to work on Android P early, they’re still ahead of the competition. In fact, the company recently confirmed a few devices and a rough timeframe on when updates could arrive.
Most notably, phones like the Huawei P20, P20 Pro, Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro are listed as running Android Pie, or will soon. In fact, here’s what Huawei had to say about updates “first, the P20 series will get released in September, and the Mate series will launch in the future”.
With September essentially over it doesn’t look like the company will hit that initial target. That said, we can expect updates throughout October for a slew of Huawei and Honor-branded phones. Plus, thanks to previous release cycles we have a pretty good idea of what to expect. We can start to piece together the update pie, and give you a sense of when it’s coming.
In our slideshow below we’ll share information about a few things you need to know about Huawei Android Pie updates.
Huawei Android Pie Betas (and Honor)
First things first, those with select Huawei phones can try Android 9 Pie right now. The company added a few devices to a beta program and even released a beta 2 update in mid-September.
Android Pie beta 2 is rolling out right now for the Huawei P20, Mate 10, Honor 10, and Honor Play. Then, we believe the company will add more phones to the beta program in the coming weeks and months.
Essentially, your P20 Pro can try the software now. However, we still recommend most users simply wait for the official software. If you are interested, here's how to join the beta.
