Update (01/23/2018): Huawei is rolling out a new update for the Huawei P9 (international variant) that brings with it a couple of notable improvements to the phone’s photography suite.

The updated build (EVA-L19C185B393) adds Moving Picture mode which lets users take dynamic photos in the Camera app’s Standard mode. There are also improvements to the Gallery app, including the ability to search for photos by date, location, or album name, and the addition of Highlights – a feature that lets users select multiple images and videos to commemorate an occasion or moment.

As well as general optimizations to the Mirror app and selfie shots, it also adds a new setting which, when activated, prompts the phone to install the latest updates between 2:00 am-4:00 am when not in use.

Welcome to the Huawei P9, P9 Lite and P9 Plus Android update tracker page. This page covers all the major software news for the Huawei P9 and will be updated regularly with new information.

Unlike many of our other Android update tracker pages, this article doesn’t contain specific carrier details as the Huawei P9 family is sold in the US unlocked. Also, we won’t be covering general security patches in our list.

We recommend you bookmark this page so you can stay up to date with the very latest updates.

Huawei P9 Android Nougat and Oreo update

Huawei began its global rollout of Android 7.0 Nougat to the P9 series in mid-2017 via EMUI 5.0. The question now is will Huawei update P9 devices to Android 8.0 Oreo?

We’re still waiting, but if you do want to try and upgrade to EMUI 5.0 (Android Nougat) on your P9 now, you can have a go at this guide from the XDA Developers forums. It would essentially mean that your device becomes an unbranded UK model running EMUI 5, however, it looks quite tricky and means you would void your device warranty. Your call.
