Huawei P9 update tracker

This is the Huawei P9 update tracker, covering all major news for the US and international devices.
By
May 5, 2017

Welcome to the Huawei P9 Android update tracker page. This page covers all the major software news for the Huawei P9 and will be updated regularly with new information.

Unlike many of our other Android update tracker pages, this article doesn’t contain specific carrier details as the Huawei P9 is sold in the US unlocked. Also, we won’t be covering general security patches in our list.

We recommend you bookmark this page so you can stay up to date with the very latest updates.

Huawei P9 Android Nougat update

Though some of Huawei’s devices have shipped with it pre-installed, it’s yet to get the Nougat rollout underway to a substantial degree. The Huawei P9 Nougat update has popped up in a few locations, Switzerland and Croatia reportedly among them, from as far back as January, but it’s not in full swing in Europe or the US.

It was expected to roll out globally before the end of March — Huawei India said as much in a tweet on March 2 — but that has come and gone with no sign of Android 7.0.

We’re still waiting, but if you do want to try and upgrade to EMUI 5.0 (Android Nougat) on your P9 now, you can have a go at this guide from the XDA Developers forums. It would essentially mean that your device becomes an unbranded UK model running EMUI 5, however, it looks quite tricky and means you would void your device warranty. Your call.
