Huawei Mate 9 was launched in December last year. It’s just a four months from the launch date, and the smartphone vendor has already managed to sell out near about 5 million units of the flagship phone. This is really a milestone that Huawei achieved with its new launch.
The Chinese smartphone vendor is further working on making the Huawei Mate 9 a tremendous success. We say that, as the company is now planning to update the smartphone with the latest Android software update – Android O. Latest media reports making rounds on the internet suggest that Huawei is currently testing Android O build for Mate 9.

Starting up with the newly unveiled Huawei Mate 9. With these tweaks in its EMUI interface, Huawei is planning to make its flagship – Mate 9 compatible with all the upcoming Android operating system.

The leaked picture shows that the latest Android version comes with a build number – MHA-AL00C00B007-log on Mate 9. The leak further suggests that the new build will probably be called – EMUI 5.1.
Although Huawei didn’t confirm the coming of Android O officially, the picture-in-picture mode highlighted in the leaked renders almost confirms the coming of Android O onboard. If the speculations are true, Huawei Mate 9 users will now be able to be able to multi-task, for instance, watch two videos at the same time, which they couldn’t have done with the earlier Android version.
According to a report coming from a member of XDA-Developer, the initial build of the update will be probably based on the developer preview of Android O, which suggests that at first, the Huawei smartphone will only support two languages – English and Mandarin. With every passing day, the updates will also start improving further.
Not to forget, Android O itself is at an initial stage of development, hence if the rumours about Huawei Mate 9 getting the latest software update is true, it will be very limited and will be for internal testing only. This means, if the Mate 9 gets the Android O update, the company might not roll out the upgrade globally.
