Huawei Announces Android Nougat Update, Here Are The Smartphones Involved
The Huawei Mate 9 is the company's first device to offer the EMUI 5.0 — based on Nougat — out of the box, and now, Huawei is announcing when their other smartphones will receive the update. EMUI 5.0 will be rolled out to the Huawei P9, Nova and Nova Plus, and others in the first quarter of 2017.
Huawei Announces Android Nougat Update
As reported Giz Bot, HTC, OnePlus, Motorola and a few other big smartphone vendors have either already started updating their flagship smartphones or have announced a particular time-frame for the Nougat update. The latest company to join the list is Huawei, one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world.
It has recently launched both on the Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and is planning to push the software update to its other set of smartphones. The company has also confirmed a list of devices that will get Nougat update which it plans to roll out starting from the first quarter of 2017.
Here Are The Smartphones Involved
According to GSM Arena, the roll-out will begin sometime in Q1, 2017, with the Huawei Mate 8 and P9 getting the update first, followed by the P9 Plus, P9 lite, nova, and nova Plus.
Android Central reported that Huawei will roll out beta tests before kicking off the final builds. In his review of the Mate 9, Alex Dobie liked the changes introduced in EMUI 5.0:
Huawei claims that the new EMUI 5.0 is more efficient, secure, and user-friendly. It "significantly cuts down on the number of steps needed to achieve the desired function," the company says in a press release, adding that "furthermore, the user can reach 90% of the core functions in just two to three clicks."
EMUI 5.0 is, for the most part, the huge improvement it needed to be. Most of Huawei's own preloaded apps have been given a complete visual overhaul, with white backdrops, light grey accents and blue highlights. Apps like the dialer, messages app, calendar and settings look more like they belong in the modern Android ecosystem, as opposed to seeming like weird not-quite-right-looking iOS clones.
And the new, darker notification shade, is more customizable than ever, with more icons shown at once than the old grid setup of old.
