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 Kirin and HarmonyOS appears in Chinese study syllabus
According to the inputs coming from Weibo, Huawei Kirin, HarmonyOS operating system and other self-developed Huawei technologies appeared in the study test syllabus question book.
A picture shared online shows questions that have carried out an inventory of the product names of China’s most influential technology companies. And said that these product names are very distinctive, including the mobile chipset “Kirin”, the operating system “HarmonyOS”, the server chip “Kunpeng” and more.
The latest appearance of these popular technologies is the result of the people behind the development that put countless hours to bring them into reality.
U.S. wants to cut Qualcomm supplies to Huawei
The U.S. wants to impose further restrictions on Huawei to completely cut off the supply chains including the goods from Qualcomm and Intel. We could just call it the latest addition to the U.S. administration’s obsession with Huawei.
Reuters reports that the U.S. Government under Joe Biden has come up with a new policy of denial to sell items to Huawei. The list of denial now goes beyond 5G to cover products for 4G, WiFi 6, WiFi 7, A.I., and high-performance cloud computing and cloud items.
A person familiar with the matter revealed that the Biden administration wants to tighten its grip on Huawei and the reversing the approval of 4G chip technology transfer. However, these chips were also approved under the early office of Biden himself.
Back in 2019, the former U.S. president ordered to put Huawei into the so-called Entity List, which bans other companies from selling their goods to Huawei. This led to massive outages in Huawei’s supply chain, as the intent was to empty Huawei from all of its tech access.
So, It lost Google mobile services, 5G chipset, and other crucial components used in telecom products. These sanctions didn’t have effect immediately but the U.S. government staged them to check the impact on the Chinese tech maker.
Qualcomm and intel are one of these companies that were approved to ship their chip to Huawei. Thereafter, Huawei continues to use Qualcomm chips in its all products whether its flagship, mid-range, or tablet device. Therefore, the U.S. likely come upfront to cut Qualcomm and Intel from Huawei.
For the time being, reports are colliding that the latest decision has been made, while a few suggest that the decision is under discussion. Either way, it’s a decision made by a government sitting in a fantasy land and licking a fantasy popsicle.
Why not? The U.S. banned Huawei out of nowhere, and the U.S. government puts a ban on Huawei every year to showcase in the name of protecting U.S. citizens, while it’s just a matter of some headlines that come after such a step.
The U.S. administration thinks that attacking Huawei means attacking China, while the U.S. continues to ship a large number of technologies to many big Chinese smartphone makers. Would, the U.S. also consider cutting ties with them as well, it won’t be a matter of national security.
Truth be told, Huawei is the only company that dominated both the network and smartphone market, and there’s an old saying “When you can’t beat the odds change the game”. Odds have always been in favor of Huawei but the U.S. is continuously changing the game since 2019. But the question is, for how long?

Previously, Yu Chengdong said that “the difficulty ten years ago was that no one recognized or knew Huawei’s brand, but today, ten years later, we have accumulated a lot of core technologies and core capabilities.” Yu Chengdong emphasized that innovative technologies are hard-won, However, Huawei will not be afraid of challenges, insist on investing in research and development, keep climbing, and continue to lead the industry forward.”
He further revealed the moment he was proud of the smartphone, recalling that Mate 7 achieved great commercial success, in the beginning, Huawei had no expectations about its sale but it was purchased by people all over China.
