Huawei Honor 9 Lite has become one of the best budget smartphones in 2018. It is high enough performance combined with a relatively moderate price. I am also pleased that Huawei provides regular updates for this popular model, increasing the safety of its use, correcting “bugs”, as well as adding small but pleasant functions. But users are wondering whether Honor 9 Lite will be upgraded to Android Pie and when will the long-awaited update begin?
Hillary on theandroidsoul.com website notes that the update presented in the second half of December 2017 is Honor 9 Lite to Android 9 Pie is expected in the first quarter of 2019. On September 29, 2018, the Honor 9 Lite smartphone received two software updates, which were also reviewed.
When Honor 9 Lite gets Android 9 Pie?
Honor 9 Lite – a smartphone for glass lovers – became one of the first budget smartphones, shipped with the pre-installed Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. His upgrade to Android 8.1 is not expected, but it is expected that he will get Android 9 Pie. Probably the update will be provided in the first quarter of next year or a little later.
Since Honor 9 Lite is running out of the box running Oreo and supports Google's Project Treble, the likelihood of updating it to Pie increases. After all, Huawei's desire to quickly provide updates is widely known, so it will not surprise anyone even if Honor 9 Lite gets a Pie earlier than expected.
This update will be received by Honor 9 Lite with EMUI 9.0 shell. EMUI is a customized software shell for smartphones from Huawei. Users hope that in EMUI 9.0, Huawei will reduce the amount of redundant software that distinguishes the shell from the clean version of the Android operating system.
