Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is an important device and the company keeps on rolling out new softwares for this martphone including the EMUI 12. Owners of this phone lost their hopes of getting a new major transition but by the end of last year, Huawei shocked them all by announcing its eligibility over EMUI 12.

Back in July, Huawei began to rollout EMUI 12 for Y9 Prime 2019. Since then, Huawei started expanding it for more smartphones. This new software brings major new changes to the smartphone as it upgrades from EMUI 10 to EMUI 12. Yes, the device skipped EMUI 10.1 and 11 because it wasn’t eligible to grab these softwares.

As compared to EMUI 10, Huawei installs new user interface features such as control panel, notification panel, animations, large folders, system perfomance improvements and better system security. There are new options to manage interconnected devices that wasn’t available before.

EMUI 13:

EMUI 13 is also on the horizon but Huawei has not confirmed Y9 Prime 2019 smartphone’s slot for the upgrade roadmap.

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 users can download this software update by going into Settings > tap on System & updates and then tap on Software updates to fetch the latest firmware rollout. Speaking of which, we suggest you to make a backup of important files to prevent unwated data loss.
