Huawei P10 and Honor 9 receive EMUI 9.0.1 update with January security patches

Vlad, 23 January 2019

Today Huawei has started sending out a new software update to the P10, its flagship smartphone from the first half of 2017. Additionally, the Honor 9 is getting the same software, namely EMUI 9.0.1.

Currently the rollout is happening only in China, but it's clearly only a matter of time before the new release hits other markets. EMUI 9.0.1 comes with the January 2019 security patches, and it's based on Android 9 Pie like EMUI 9 was before it. EMUI 9 with Android Pie was released in Asia for the P10 and Honor 9 back in December of last year, and it's nice to see Huawei and its sub-brand still keeping the new software builds rolling out for these phones that are getting pretty old by mobile world standards.

Aside from the new security update, EMUI 9.0.1 also brings support for VoLTE on China Telecom, an improved system of full-screen navigation gestures, along with other unnamed fixes and enhancements.
