Huawei P9 and Mate 8 are updated in China to Android 7.0 Nougat 1

The latest version of Android lands in China for the smartphones Huawei P9 and Huawei Mate 8. We are talking about two of the most searched devices among online deals these days so close to Christmas (thanks to their very competitive specifications and prices). The fact that this new Android update is available for both Huawei devices, makes them even more attractive to Western users, who can now expect a launch via OTA from Asia with all the possible certainties (and in a short period of time). However, at the time of writing these lines, there are no official dates, so we have to be patient.

Huawei is ready to continue the updrate to the Google operating system as part of the update program that the Chinese company has prepared for its latest flagship devices. Since December 7 is taking place in China, and once finished there, will reach the rest of the world in which these two devices have been sold. The build number for Huawei P9 is B352, and B552 for Mate 8. The update will also include the enhanced version of the internal EMUI interface, which will go into version 5.0 with new features and simplify the entire internal submenu. We take this opportunity to refresh your memory on both devices.
