Android 8.0 Oreo for Huawei Mate 9 will be rolling out soon

As early as last April, Huawei  was already rumored to test early builds of the new OS for the Huawei Mate 9 although Google has yet to announce the arrival of Android Oreo.


Recently, Huawei’s 2016 flagship smartphone appeared at Geekbench database with Android 8.0 Oreo on board. Codenamed Huawei MHA, the Mate 9 was Huawei’s first smartphone to run Android 7.0 Nougat inside, and now it seems possible for it to be the first Huawei device to receive Android 8.0 OS update.

While we are still unable to tell how soon the latest Android OS will roll out officially, but the recent Geekbench listing of the Mate 9 shows that the new OS update is already in the middle of its way to debut later this year.

While we are waiting for the Mate 10 to grab the headlines next month, Huawei Mate 9 with Android 8.0 Oreo still looking strong in the current high-end segment.
