Huawei has in recent years been one of the top companies in the mid-range, seeing how the Huawei P8 Lite was one of the best-selling mobile phones in 2016. Today we are going to see a news on the mid-range of last year, since the update of Android 7 for the Huawei P9 Lite is delayed.
The Android 7 update for the Huawei P9 Lite is delayed again. We already told you long ago that the update of Android 7.0 Nougat for the Huawei P9 Lite was announced, which means that it would be very close to its official arrival via OTA on all its devices. If we take a look at the features of this Huawei P9 Lite, we find a fairly powerful terminal which would have no problem with the latest update of the Android operating system. The problem is that Huawei takes longer to update because of its personalization layer, since it has more things to change or customize.
But today, we see how EMUI 5.0 is even further away for this terminal, because it was already scheduled to be reaching all these phones and was in tests, but the Android 7.0 update for the Huawei P9 Lite will have to wait until the second quarter of the year, thus being April, May and June. This update is taking longer than is due, and we exactly don’t know what the cause is.
Recall that the battery consumption of the P9 Lite with Android Nougat improved a lot, being in a testing phase, so we can expect quite a few good things about this update that comes with EMUI 5.0. The only terminals that currently have this latest version of EMUI are the new P10, Mate 9 and P9. We will see if with luck this update arrives in the first weeks of April so that all its users of this terminal can enjoy it.
