Just a few days ago Huawei announced the arrival of face recognition via EMUI 8.0 to all its terminals of the P10 range, that is, Huawei Mate 10, Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus (with the Huawei P10 remaining in limbo). At this point there are many customers of the brand who expected to know the policy of update of the firm regarding Android 8.0 Oreo for the Huawei P9.
If we look back, we can remember how the Chinese firm announced the mobile phones that would begin shortly to receive the beta of Android 8 Oreo . Then, in addition to Huawei Mate 8, Honor 8, Honor Note 8 Y Honor 6X anticipated the availability of Google software for the Huawei P9 . Unfortunately it seems that this update will not come to light. And, according to an email sent by the Huawei Support Center in the United Kingdom, it seems that the Chinese brand has canceled the update of Android 8.0 Oreo for the Huawei P9 .
Goodbye to Android 8.0 Oreo for the Huawei P9
It is striking to see how the update is canceled even more considering that the old top of the range was one of the first terminals to receive the beta of Android Oreo . This has led some users to ask the brand when the final version of the operating system would arrive to their devices, but they have found the least expected response.
The Huawei mobile phone was launched on the market in 2016 with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and in mid-2017 it received the corresponding update of Android 7.0 Nougat. However, it seems that Huawei has finally decided to terminate the testing of Android 8.0 on the Huawei P9 due to operational problems. Specifically, the manufacturer, in the response email to users, mentions “failures of the built-in system function, freezing of the device, and an exaggerated energy consumption”.
If the mobile phone malfunctions and also presents a poor energy consumption, it is likely that the company has tried to optimize the software, but it seems that they have found themselves in a “dead end” that has pushed them to pull “down the road”. in the middle”. After knowing that the Huawei P9 runs out of Android 8.0 Oreo Many will ask about the Huawei P9 Plus or the Huawei P9 Lite . The brand has not commented on whether they will receive the update, but it is expected that they will also be left without it, since we are talking about phones with similar or inferior hardware.
