Huawei’s Android Nougat to debut on P9, Mate 8 today in China

With all the fuss about betas and super software updates from Google, Samsung, HTC and Lenovo (among others), we haven’t really covered the Android Nougat path for Huawei’s hardware.

The Huawei Mate 9 already features the smarter and cleaner EMUI 5.0 on top of Android 7.0, though, so its’ only a matter of time that the P9, Mate 8 and other entries from Honor get their fixings. But how much time?

Apparently, the software roadmap puts us closer than you might think. According to a thread on the Chinese Huawei Club forums, the P9 and Mate 8 will get their official Nougat updates today. The Honor 8 and V8 are going through their first full beta builds right now and so is the Huawei P9 Plus. The mid-range Huawei Nova is currently shuttling its first betas out as well. We presume more phones will be tacked onto that list as time goes on.

Keep in mind that these dates are not global, so we’ll probably have to bide our time elsewhere.
