Being the current flagship from the company (just before the release of the P10), many expected that the tech company will make it a priority to push the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update to the device probably in late 2016 or early 2017. After introducing its new flagships, the P10 and P10 Plus, which are running the new EMUI 5.1, Huawei announced it would begin the global rollout of Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.0 to the P9 in Q1 2017. The announcement also features an image touting "Get ready to twiddle thumbs better on your Huawei P9", indicating that Android 7.0 Nougat will bring a faster and smoother user experience.
March is the last month of this year's first quarter that's why Huawei P9 owners should assume to acquire the long-awaited in the coming days. As a result, some users may not obtain EMUI 5.0 and Android 7.0 Nougat in March.
The smartphone features a sleek metallic design, a 5.2-inch full HD display (1080p), a Kirin 950 processor, Mali T880 MP4 graphics, two 12-megapixel rear cameras, an 8-megapixel front shooter, a rear-mounted biometric fingerprint reader, and two configurations for RAM and internal storage.
The phone was unveiled April 2016 and like any other phone that came in at that time, the Huawei P9 comes preinstalled with Android Marshmallow out of the box.
Android 7.0 Nougat will remain unavailable for the Huawei devices.
The base Huawei P9 configuration packs 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of native storage space, while the more powerful one sports 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage.
According to a tweet by Huawei India, the rest of the globe will receive the Huawei P9 Android 7.0 Nougat OTA before the end of this month. Let us know in the comments section below.
