At IFA 2018, Huawei announced EMUI 9.0, and now it’s more than 8 months – there are many Huawei/Honor smartphone users still waiting for EMUI 9.0 update to reach their devices.
We have received more than 200 emails, where users were asking for the EMUI 9.0 update release date in their regions. Around 40 emails from India and 25 from the UK, and remaining from other countries all around the world.
One user from the UK wrote to us:
“Huawei is working on Android Q beta but where is EMUI 9.0 for my P20 Pro. I am disappointed with you Huawei, send me my update”
Another one also from the UK:
“My brother using Android Pie on his Honor 8X but I didn’t get any why? I have the 8X too”
One desperate Honor 8X user from Pakistan wrote:
“Give me update or I will not buy any phone from you”
Another one from India said:
“I have P20 Lite and Honor 9N and I don’t have EMUI 9 update on any of my phone. What are you doing you? When will I get this update?”
And there are so many emails…
Huawei previously responded with this”
“It might take a while for an update to arrive due to the release of the updates in different and separate batches as the IMEI’s are chosen randomly. Also, please be informed that another part that is important when receiving an update depends if the device is unlocked (SIM Free) or locked in a certain network (branded.) Therefore, some users might receive updates and security patches sooner than the others.”
We understand that you are not happy with the update process and I am here to provide some explanations on this. First, the update process is based on many factors (the network operator, the region, model of the phone, type of update, etc) and that’s why the company cannot provide an estimated time or date for a specific update.
The roll out process is random, that’s why some devices might receive it earlier and some later. Also, I wanted to assure you that you will receive a notification if you have an update available. From there you will be able to download and install it. The notification will arrive when the update is fully optimized for your device. Also, if there are any security risks or issues, the company will make sure that you will have the patches on time to solve that.
Huawei is doing an outstanding job out there with the EMUI OS. Since its launch in 2012, the operating system keeps evolving over time with EMUI version 5.0 the company enhanced it with a new set of features. With EMUI 8.2 added new technology including GPU Turbo. In EMUI 9 with Link Turbo and with EMUI 9.1 the company introduced its latest file system technology EROFS and new ARK compiler.
Drop your comments if you have received the EMUI 9.0 update or are you still waiting for it?

Huawei smartphone market loss became iPhone 13’s blessing
Huawei has to give its dominance over the global and Chinese smartphone market due to the sanctions. However, the phone market loss of Huawei has become a major blessing for recently launched Apple’s iPhone 13.
In the past two years, Huawei has been continuously disturbed by U.S. sanctions. The Chinese tech giant has been accused under a narrative and later it was cut with supplies of essential parts as well as services to build new products such as smartphones.
Huawei’s smartphone market loss:
In May 2019, Huawei has been placed under the U.S. entity list, a program specially designed to restrict Huawei from purchasing required components such as mobile and network equipment chipsets. Since then, Huawei has been hit by 4 rounds of sanctions that impact the company in a very devastating way.
Coming to the results, Huawei is unable to print new Kirin chipset design, had to sell its subsidiary – Honor, and it’s now out of the top smartphone maker and the recently in the absence of 5G chipset, the Chinese tech maker is selling “flagship” phones with 4G connectivity.
The damage is surely there but the company is finding its way to rise up again. However, “once a giant smartphone maker” has left a big opening of opportunity of its competitor in the market, even on the home ground.
The same goes for the premium segment, the Chinese consumers are looking for a new substitute for their premium smartphone choice and what could be better than the new iPhone 13.
Blessing for iPhone 13:
According to a report coming from SCMP, Apple has made strong pre-orders of the iPhone 13 lineup on the Chinese e-commerce platform – JD.com. As of Thursday, the American phone maker has registered over 2 million pre-orders, which surpasses 1.5 million pre-orders of last year’s iPhone 12 lineup on the same platform on the same timeline.
According to the report, the record iPhone 13 pre-order credit goes to the decline of Huawei’s phone market. On the other hand, consumers made an easy choice between Huawei phones and Apple’s in order to get better tech such as 5G.
Huawei has recently launched P50 Pro that comes with a monstrous camera setup and picture quality that surpasses all phones. Despite its premium design and lots of new features, analysts believe it lacks key selling points such as the 5G network.
“There isn’t a smartphone [in the market] which can be a threat to the iPhone 13 above the 5,000 yuan (US$776) price range,” said Qi Counterpoint Research senior analyst Ethan Qi “There isn’t a product that is as strong as the old Huawei Mate series.”
As a matter of fact, Apple isn’t the only one enjoying this market growth. Other Chinese phone makers are also taking their fair share of share left behind by Huawei.
