Huawei expanding new Petal app software upgrade package for Nova 5T in more countries



Huawei Nova 5T categorized under the popular smartphones of Huawei and has a huge amount of shipped units across the world. The main focus of the Nova 5T that makes it make a star was the best hardware and software offerings at affordable prices.

Due to its vastness, Huawei always keeps the Nova 5T smartphone in priority and release major as well as minor software updates. In the recent past, the company concluded the EMUI 11 major rollout for this smartphone in different markets.

After EMUI 11, now the Nova 5T user’s interest shifted over the HarmonyOS and they are eagerly waiting to get their hands on the latest operating system. But, the global users have to wait a little more than Chinese users maybe till 2022.

Apart from this, Huawei has recently delivered a new software update for Nova 5T to some users. This update brought a number of popular apps to the system with a large update size.


So, Huawei fans do you really want to know about the apps? According to the information, the update package added download shortcuts for apps including Petal Search, Petal Maps, Reader, Member Center, Game Center, and SkyTone services to the system.

It means that Huawei has started expanding the major app update outside of the limited market. However, currently, it is in the early stage of expansion so it may take some time to cover all Nova 5T devices.
